OSX Theme?

Post by shekkieface » Sun Jul 11, 2010 7:26 pm

Is there a theme for Mint 9 for it to look and feel like Mac OSX?

Sort of: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=13548

But one of the things that I love about Linux is that I can tweak a theme that I like to my preferences. Why settle for an imperfect copy of the Mac OS X UI?

Full theming is given by the Mac4Lin project.

If you’re running Linux Mint 9, go here for instructions about how to install the NEW (read: modified for Ubuntu/10.04) Mac4Lin

I “upgraded” an earlier installation of Mac4Lin, and this new one ROCKS! (gnome-globalmenu is awesome!)

Here's an image of my desktop!
