You should run the script as a normal user not root. Yes, open nautilus and in the location bar type: ~/.themes

Mac4Lin 1.0 Documentation is now uploaded. It can be downloaded from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mac4li ... f/download

It includes updated instructions to get that perfect Mac OS X look and also additional tweaks. I'd like to thank Hardin and Jeff for their contribution :)

That's great.
I couldn't find it at first since there wasn't a pic.
It's under Elisa is a Simple, Streamlined Media Center.

Just download the documentation from Mac4Lin's sourceforge.net page. It has instructions on how to do it.

Just an update, Mac4Lin SVN has been updated with a new version of GTK Themes' and GTK Icons' directories. They are compatible with the latest version of GNOME and distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora etc.

To download everything goto this page: http://mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/mac4lin/ and on the botton click on "Download Tarball". If you however want to download specific components (like GTK_Theme etc.) then goto that directory and download the specific tarball. To install, you can follow any guide available online to install either the GTK theme or the GTK Icon theme.

I am yet to make a formal release, but those who want to experiment with the latest version and file bugs are welcome to do so :)

A lot has changed now since the document was updated. You can use AWN, Cairo Dock or any of the available docks to get the Mac look.

Which software do you use and what problem are you facing?

No, there is nothing special to install. The default should be just fine. You can arrange panel items in whatever way you wish.
