Mac4Lin - Mac transformation pack for GTK

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, new here. I wanna share my work wid you. The project I'm working on: Mac4Lin - Mac transformation pack for GNOME

 

Mac4Lin version 0.3 Released!

 

24th October 2007

 

Mac4Lin is back! A new version, more changes, better looks and an overall more polished product. Please read changelog for information of changes in this version. It gives me immense pleasure to inform all that downloads have crossed 110 GB till date!

 

Mac4Lin now comes with a unified documentation in PDF format. Please go through this for illustrated installation instructions. Also some entities like GTK theme/Pidgin etc. now include two versions. Hence individual README files are only included if there is any need to convey release specific important information to the user which the generic documentation does not include. Read the README file for more details, in such cases.

 

With the release of GNOME 2.20, there have been issues reported with the Icon theme. Work is going on to make the theme compatible with GNOME 2.20 (found in OpenSUSE 10.3/Ubuntu 7.10 - Gusty etc.). There will be a separate release of Icon theme for GNOME 2.20. Users of this version can replace the original ver.0.3 Icon theme with the new one, which will be released soon after this release. GNOME version can be checked by clicking System Menu > About GNOME. Other components of this package are reported to work with GNOME 2.20. The installation of GTK Metacity theme and Cursors is almost same execpt that the Theme Manager in GNOME 2.20 has a new look.

 

Thanks to Victor Hugo Casals for the Safari skin, M.Lettner for the panel backgrounds, Calande for the font guide, Mitko for nm-applet icons, Vish for Grub and Buu700 for Usplash screens. I also thank all those who tested the pack and everyone who are directly or indirectly involved in this project.

 

The project was conceived on an Ubuntu system but since its dependent on GTK, it should work on any distro with GTK.

 

Apply it, flaunt it, enjoy it! :)

Oh, sorry, I missed that you stated screenshots. When I'm at work some sites are blocked, so if your images are on one of the blocked sites (most free image hosting sites) then I can't see them. Will look when I get home.

If you want to mimic the mac menubar (have application menus in it..):

And: Are they the real icons taken straight from leopard? If so, I'd suggest you remove them before you get the apple' legal team onto you and have the whole project shut down.

 

They've done it before: http://www.smh.com.au/news/mobiles--handhe...8709656280.html

Guest sakti81

hallo infra_red_dude, i'm using mandriva 2008.1 spring with GNOME 2.22, now i'm trying your Mac4Lin project but i get stucked on step 6 changing GTK splash screen by using gTweakUI, my problem is gTweakUI can't be installed on mandriva 2008.1 spring, there was trouble with the compiler. The problem appears either with rpm packs or tar.gz2. My question is, is it posible for me to do the step 6 without using gTweakUI ? or is there another way to get rid of the problem? by the way i'm new in linux world, so please write your answer with newbie style ;) ... thanks for the project mate B)
