A lot of people have been asking me how to use subversion. I've blogged about using subversion so that more people can pull down the Mac4Lin v1.0 RC2 file and here. Head here: http://phoenix-ani.blogspot.com/2009/03 ... stall.html

Hope thats helpful :)

If I install this transformation pack on Linux Mint - can it be completely removed and my original theme, settings, etc restored? Moreover, do I need to install some applications first (e.g. Cairo Dock or AWN) or are these included with the install/uninstall?

Thanks!

I due my best for Mac4Lin, but I make some tweaks, over it. I use Icons, but I prefer T-ish pack of Tony Milovan.Then Emereald offers some great Mac theme. Whatever, this is great project and I wish you all the best.

Cheers

I assume it runs quicker than a real MAC, which every time I have tried it in a MAC store has been slow, mouse drags, especially on their notebooks..
--also not into MACs', find Linux KDE 4x or Gnome and the various distribution to be more than sufficient..

Thanks very much for Mac4Lin, I saw it on you tube and was eager to down load and try it, have just upgraded to Linux mint a few days ago and grabed mac4lin from sourceforge this morning, I unzipped it and ran the installer as per instructions, got the Mac4Lin installation complete message, logged off and back in went to open the downloaded pdf for more instructions but couldn't open any of my downloads and then couldn't open synaptic or software manager. Went back to sourceforge and got the pdf again, thought maybe the manual install bits had something to do with it, but when I looked in preferences/appearance there were no mac4lin themes !!? any ideas as to what I need to do? many thanks

Oh, I'm not sure if something has changed in Linux Mint. But can you open nautilus (file manager) and type ~/.themes in the location bar and see if there are any Mac4Lin themes?

Sorry but still a newbie and only nautilus I can find is nautilus actions configuration and don't see a file manager anywhere!!? But today can open software and package manager!! Still no mac4lin themes in appearances though. Maybe I should just try installing it again or forget wanting a mac and settle with Mint desktop :) tawan is right it's a theme......
