Rythmbox's cover flow is really cool :D. But if you ask me the theme is not that special.

I think a better use of your time would be to make OS X installations look like Mint. :mrgreen:

I wonder, how is global menu integrating with the system. Any problems so far with it?

nope...intergation with gimp is realy helful but :oops: no integration with open office....and their wont b atleast in cuming times.m geting almost a inch of extra space...it realy matters...helps a lot :)

but by default it didnt seemed to work...a simple editing with gconf-editor did the trick

That's good to hear and after all, I rarely use open office, so I think I will give global menu a try. :)

I made a build of Mint for my girlfriend that looks like OS X. Here's what it looks like.

Well, I couldn't really get them to stay to the right. At least not the way that you'd want them to.

What I did was drag them over to the right, and then I opened gconf-editor and made the current icon positions mandatory. I didn't extensively test this, but it at least makes them reappear on the right when nautilus is restarted. The downside is that other icons(like files and volumes) will still default to the left.

It's a real shame that nobody even bothered to make it so that the icons would appear on the right. You'd think whoever was writing that part of nautilus would have bothered to at least include that.

I'm curious as to how you got the banshee icon to look fine on the panel? Whenever I have banshee open, the icon has an ugly grey background.

its app indicator extention for banshee.it cums under community extentions of banshee.yes i admit some of the user customising configuration is higly over looked
such as as u stated
1.icons cant b set on right side
2. customizing toolbar of nautilus is not possible rite now.the patched nautilus is slow poke n hav issues i wonder wen nautilus will include dis feature :?
3.search bar of nautilus sud b visibe all the time like in windows explorer as well in mac's


untill dis theard is popular perhaps we will remain unheard :(

This is one of the more disturbing things I've seen in a while. If you want to use a mac I'd suggest buying one. I did :shock: :D

That doesn't mean I don't use Mint but I have no inclination to make them look the same.

To each their own I guess. :wink:
