Would that be copyrighted?
If so the site wouldn't allow that.
If you have a white apple with a black background upload it.

Mac4Lin is back!

This is the version 1.0 Release Candidate. Some components are still under development. Currently the shell script is not able to set the GDM theme, cursor theme, sounds, emerald theme. They need to be manually set.

Also components like Firefox3, Thunderbird theme, awn theme/plugins etc. are still under development. The Mozilla themes may not be stable. Hence use the non-core components of Mac4Lin at your own risk. Documentation is still in the pipeline. I decided to release the RC anyway so that patrons can start using it and update to the stable version when development is complete.

Whats new: Mac4Lin v1.0 RC - 9th September, 2008

New! Automated Installer in the form of a shell script
New GDM theme
Supports the newest version of GNOME and Xfce
New Mozilla themes specifically built for Mac4Lin
Adium style AWN status icons for Pidgin
Mac style scrollbars, menus
Other tweaks in GTK theme
Adium sounds for Pidgin
New usplash

Keeping up the tradition I'm including the download stats. SF.net alone has served about 10.4TB as on today! I'm also happy to announce that Mac4Lin was one of the winners of FOSS Awards 2008.

Instructions:

Download the Mac4Lin_v1.0_RC.tar.gz archive to any folder. Extract the archive and run Mac4Lin_Install_v1.0_RC.sh file.

I'm not sure if the theme should have an apple logo instead of the mint one in the mint menu....

I did it manually by replacing usr/share/pixmaps/mintmenu.png with Image this one.

just do

Code: Select all
sudo nautilus


to be able to do that as root :)

gksu nautilus

You should always use "gksu" when starting an "x-application", sudo is for CLI-based applications.

There is no Apple logo in the theme. The logo that is assigned as main menu is the one which the theme uses.

and the colours in pidgin. they show amber when busy and red when idle - seems mixed up to me as red should be busy?

is there much else stopping this going to release? are you just busy on other things? - i think its a very fine piece of work, just the odd little thing making it short of perfection :)

when i use "movie player" and put the volume right down, the volume button disappears, i assume there should be a mute icon there or something else.

I guess some people really do like the Mac theme, personally I think its ugly. You are doing a nice job on this though, I do have to admit.

as far as i know (which isn't much) awn is not part of the "mac for lin" package - you should install awn and then apply the skin to it.

you are correct. AWN is really easy to install, just do a search for it, and you will find tons and tons of tuts on how to do it

Which would be the theme for MAC in awn, i tried the one which came along with the package, but that doesn't have any launchers. Do i have to create all launchers by myself? I have seen a couple of screen shots, in which it was like workin on MAC, so was just curious in having the setup replicated.

Let me know how to proceed with this.

Thanks,
Sanu

to add launchers to the dock, just drag them from you main menu, to the dock, that's all there is to it. Also, read the AWN Wiki on the AWN home page, it will tell you alot, and will help you to learn how to use, and customize it.

Right. The AWN theme is only for the background/pattern on the dock. The launchers are one's personal choice. As suggested, simply drag the launchers from the Main Menu to the AWN bar.

The main Mac4Lin sourceforge.net has been updated with the new themes. These themes fix the "Engine Error" in the newest version of GNOME. The pack includes an updated installation script which does not attempt to set the GDM theme autmatically. Also, a user contributed Mac4Lin uninstall script is now included in the pack.

Thanks to Peng :)

I'm happy to inform you all that Mac4Lin now uses the SVN version control system. The latest version Mac4Lin v1.0 RC2 is available there. Users may checkout to download the bleeding edge version.

The required info is provided here:

Subversion Server: https://mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net

Path to Repository: /svnroot/mac4lin

Access instructions:

To access a Subversion repository, configure your Subversion client as follows:

* Hostname: mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net

For clients that use a URL string:

https://mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mac4lin

Mac4Lin v1.0RC2 has not been released and hence is not available on the Downloads page. It can only be obtained through SVN. Comments, suggestions, complaints are welcome as always
