Yeah Prakash, its there.

Volunteering for Mac4Lin? :)
Sry at this time :)
but I tried mac4lin just now.everything works OK.I am not at all familiar with docks.still installed awn from repository.I dont need to enable any external repo.I think cannonical commerical repo will be where awn is available?


the only problem I really face is firefox font issue-the fonts looks ugly.
I think this problem is faced by @imav also that time :D
I think the problem will be the /etc/fonts/alias,mis,ms-fonts etc files that was extracted into.I am no expert fonts(defoma) hinding thing :D
and this problem especially happens to nvidia card owners.


will reply if any solution is found(like NOT using those defoma hints :p )

So, I finally used Mac4lin on Ubuntu.Am a lazy sloth to download anything.So just got it from this month's LFY CD.! :p
Must say, It looks very nice and pretty.But there's one small problem.I can't have transparent panels now.Here's a screenie to explain better:

As you can see, only the part of panel is transparent.Any idea why this happens.?

Natively the latest version of Mac4lin doesn't support transparency in panels. This is to keep the interface consistent (since it also bundles a theme for MacMenu hack).

To enable panel transparecy you need to install compiz settings manager and make the top panel transparent as reqd.

Think Zen.
^You mean to say previous versions did?
Besides, hows it possible for a gtk theme to make a transparent panel?
That's the job of a compositor if i aint mistaken.

Yes with upto 0.3 you could use the Transparency option in the Panel properties to make it fully translucent. But with ver. 0.4 the ability to make it fully transparent is not available.
 
Sabr karo bhaiyya. Just done with the icon theme :)
need any help ?

I remember mehul telling me of this commandline image editor which can do the same action on a number of files. I hope you remember to use it to resize all icons to the same frame, so that the Terminal Bug does not reappear :p

if you give me your icons, I can try repackaging them for KDE.

In the cases where there are a multiple of icons for the same perpose, how about asking here and in your website which is better by a debate and/or a poll ?

Last time, you made icons for almost every program. How about adding icons for other stuff like gconf-editor (which has no icons. anywhere. period.) ?

No use without a KDE theme.

No multiple icons. Don't worry :)

All icons are there. (btw, gconf-editor and even the remotest program you'd heard also had an icon in the last release :) Same is the case this time).

In can be Get some sort of Integrated installer with GUI?

Since its for noobs, so it should One-click and install
 
Whatever!
process or Method does not matter, just want mac4lin to be more user friendly
why don't you help do it then ? :p

Just create an install.sh text file with the copy command which places each file in the place it is supposed to be in ? Beleive me. The number of files is so high, you will surely suicide while you are half way through writing the script.

@infra_red_dude, then how about instructions to get a mac terminal ?

like green text, partial transparency(???), etc ?
You need instructions for that? Chalo theek hai.. will include it this time :)

The next version (soon to be released) would be much more user friendly to install. I guarantee that :)

This poor chap has already done that! Automated installer for the soon-to-be-released version of Mac4Lin in the form of a shell script :)

Damnit! If only I'd found you earlier! Actually QWERTY had done a small gui in pygtk. That thing met its pre-mature end! I guess I will ask QWERTY to work on it again for future releases :)

Aur is bar top bar transparent hona chahiye bhai :D
Not possible, boss :( You gotta use Compiz for that. That is one thing where prolly I need to do a lot of research to enable it yet not break the whole package.
