    Mac Icons on linux ...


    Hi ..

    I downloaded a few zip files with Mac Icons from interfaceLIFT..
    I extracted the zip files , and all I got was a few folders.. Among them seem to be a folder that holds the icons.. But the icons have no extension?!!!

    I have already installed icns2png and was ready to convert them???

    Any help??

    If you're using Gnome, go to System -> Preferences -> Theme and click on the Install Theme button, then navigate to where the tar files are located and hit OK. Gnome should install them automatically if they are in the proper format.

    "...Apple's custom ZIP format that handles Mac resource forks."

    Are you sure these are capable of being used on linux?

    You might want to look into question 9 ... you may be able to convert them to linux.

    Apple icons cannot be used 1-2-3 in Linux. Try to grab the Windows-zips that they have on the site. Convert the icons to .png, rename them, scale them and write the theme index. That't the only way afaik.
