    Mac4Lin ver.0.2 - Mac OS X Leopard Transformation pack

    Hey guys, new here. I wanna share my work wid you. The project I'm working on: Mac4Lin - Mac transformation pack for Linux!

    I am happy to announce the version 0.2 release of the Mac4Lin Project. Version 0.1 alpha has received an overwhelming response. People have used and liked it and the downloads (as on this day) have touched about 6GB!!! Lots of comments/suggestions/bugs were received and I have tried to iron out all the bugs known till this day. This update also brings a whole lot of new things. See the changelog for changes.

    Special thanks to Victor of vsdigital for provding the Firefox Safari Skin and thanks to everyone who tested the version 0.1 alpha. Because of all this I'm giving version 0.2 stable to this release. Keep visiting the project website for more updates.

    Apply it, flaunt it, enjoy it!

    Will this work in KDE? I dont really like Gnome...

  6. #5
    I'm sorry ap90033, this pack is for GNOME only. I do haf plans to release a KDE version too since a lot of people haf asked for it. But I dunno when that will happen.

  7. #6


    *sigh* Ok thanks for your time. It looks really nice, hope to see it in KDE soon.. Is there anyway you could post here when you port it? Is there anything I can do to help? I am not a programmer (would love to learn but currently know nothing).

  8. #7
    Yeah, this thread is for Mac4Lin. So any changes/addition/ports etc. would definitely be reported here.

    Regarding your contribution, you sure can contribute. AFAIK, the Emerald theme will be same. The components that will differ are the KDE theme, Icon theme and the KDM theme. If you haf an idea about these then its not difficult to port it to KDE

    I'll be releasing ver.0.3 in somtime. Its bigger and better But its again for GTK only, at the moment.

    Mac4Lin version 0.3

    24th October 2007

    Mac4Lin is back! A new version, more changes, better looks and an overall more polished product. Please read changelog for information of changes in this version. It gives me immense pleasure to inform all that downloads have crossed 110 GB till date!

    Mac4Lin now comes with a unified documentation in PDF format. Please go through this for illustrated installation instructions. Also some entities like GTK theme/Pidgin etc. now include two versions. Hence individual README files are only included if there is any need to convey release specific important information to the user which the generic documentation does not include. Read the README file for more details, in such cases.

    With the release of GNOME 2.20, there have been issues reported with the Icon theme. Work is going on to make the theme compatible with GNOME 2.20 (found in OpenSUSE 10.3/Ubuntu 7.10 - Gusty etc.). There will be a separate release of Icon theme for GNOME 2.20. Users of this version can replace the original ver.0.3 Icon theme with the new one, which will be released soon after this release. GNOME version can be checked by clicking System Menu > About GNOME. Other components of this package are reported to work with GNOME 2.20. The installation of GTK Metacity theme and Cursors is almost same execpt that the Theme Manager in GNOME 2.20 has a new look.

    Thanks to Victor Hugo Casals for the Safari skin, M.Lettner for the panel backgrounds, Calande for the font guide, Mitko for nm-applet icons, Vish for Grub and Buu700 for Usplash screens. I also thank all those who tested the pack and everyone who are directly or indirectly involved in this project.

    Apply it, flaunt it, enjoy it!

    I saw your stuff on digg the other day. I think I might give it a go if simply to show a friend it can be done. I used to use Baghira years ago but that was before Compositing. Good luck with it!
