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: 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 :) - Sep 13 2010
I am yet to release an update. Work has been keeping me too busy and hence I haven't found enough time to work on the next version. But I assure you that there will be an update soon! :)

Glad many parts of Mac4Lin still work on the latest version of Ubuntu! :) - Apr 30 2010
Yes, I'm working on updating Mac4Lin. But the work is going on slowly due to lack of time. I've extended an open invitation to all to help me fix issues. But nobody has come forward yet.

Rest assured, Mac4Lin will not go un-updated. It will stay and be very much alive in future! :) though the development will slow down a bit due to various factors... - Mar 04 2010
Yes, I'm aware about this. Issue is I'm pre-occupied with work and I've relocated to a new place; hence I'm not finding enough time to work on Mac4Lin.

I'll try to get things done as soon as possible. It's good to know that there are many users like you who still use and love Mac4Lin :) - Feb 28 2010
Yes, there are quite some tweaks. You may wanna go thru the documentation :

I'm still updating it but most of whats described in there works. Hope this helps :) - Jul 30 2009
I'm not sure but I don't think its a bug in mac4Lin. I'm unable to reproduce this bug on my system. Can you reproduce this bug with some other theme? Completely switch to the default GNOME or Ubuntu or whatever theme and try if you still get these errors. - Jul 28 2009
You can upload the screenshot to some imagehosting site (like imageshack etc.) and just post a link here :) - Jul 27 2009
Can you post a screenshot of the same? and also of the error messages? What changes did you make to the system fonts? Can you post a screenshot of System > Prefs > Appearances > Fonts dialog too? - Jul 26 2009
Oh I see what you mean. The sounds will not be automatically assigned. Changing the theme will not switch the sounds. You need to goto System>Preferences>Sounds>Sounds and assign the sounds manually. Mac4Lin sounds are usually stored in /usr/share/sounds/Mac4Lin - Jul 24 2009
I'm guessing its an issue with permission. Can you goto the sounds folder (with the extracted .wav files) and do a 'sudo chown <your username> *.wav' and try if you are able to play the sounds in any media player? - Jul 21 2009
Thank you for the words of appreciation. Glad you like Mac4Lin :) - Jul 21 2009

I don't seem to get you. Do you mean the Close, Min, Max buttons? If so then they are not the radio buttons.

To change their position refer to the Mac4Lin Documentation here: - Nov 11 2009
How did you uninstall it? You need to run the uninstall script which will set everything right. - Sep 21 2009
I'd be more than happy to join you in writing an engine if you haf the knowhow. I'm ready to contribute in whatever way I can.

And thanks for the edition. I will haf a look at it and integrate it if everything goes well!

Thank you :) - Jul 18 2009
I agree on the smaller details which are a bit hard to reproduce exactly as in Mac OS X. About the tabs issue, GTK doesn't permit centrally aligned tabs and about the artifacts, they can surely be corrected. - Jul 16 2009
@Thanks to everybody for their support.

If you vote down then do leave a comment as to what made you do so. This will help me in bettering Mac4Lin.

As of 'undo'ing, just run the Mac4Lin Uninstall script and everything will be uninstalled and reset to default. - Jul 15 2009

Thats the best I could work out for now. Altering that would garble the Panel background. So I chose to stick with this since the volume control is not always seen. I'm workin to find a solution to this, so plz bear with me. I dunno if i'll be successful in mending that, coz rite now the trade off is just too much.

Thats to keep up the grey look of Leopard.

Oh yeah, a guy pointed out that bug. The deskbar icon is not applied. I guess it was left out. I'll look into it. - Nov 01 2007

Right click on the folder > properties. In the Basic page click on the folder icon and browse to the place where this theme is installed (/home/<username>/.icons/<mac4lin theme folder>/EXTRAS) You will find almost all the icons there. Select the one you like. - Oct 25 2007

Download this, goto the Appearances dialog and install this theme.

If you download the whole Mac4Lin pack, except the icon theme everything else will work. Just download the PDF documentation which has illustrated installation instructions, some steps maybe different due to a newer version of GNOME (2.20) But I guess you can figure it out yourself. It shouldn't be tuff.

Since I don't use Gusty I hafnt compiled any Howto for it. - Oct 25 2007
