A guy called Mahyuddin Susanto did package Mac4Lin debs. But I guess it was for v0.4. I hafn't heard from him yet. You may try searching for Mac4Lin v0.4 debs.

I'd asked for help from ppl who knew packaging since my knowledge about packaging is minimal; but hardly anyone turned up.


Broken In

I used this theame for the first time..followed the instruction as given in the pdf...evrything worked perfectly but.....
1: the top panel is suddenly looking ugly with a white patch in the middle of the panel
2: when i right click on the panel only 2 options comes up 'help' and 'properties' other options like 'add panel' and all are gone....


Got it... :)
I had ubuntu tweak installed
Ubunu Tweak --> Gnome --> 'Complete Lockdown of all panels' was ticked hence when i right click on any panel only two options were shown now i have unticked it hence i'am able to see all the option4s on right click

One more question
After the mac4lin theme is installed has any1 tried to make the top panel transparent?
right click on top panel--> Properties--> background tab -->click on solid color , transparent

its not making the complete panel transparent...

You could however try this trick for getting a translucent panel. Delete ~/.themes/<mac4lin theme in use>/gtk-2.0/Panel/panel-bg.png

Now right click on the Panel and apply this custom background: ~/.themes/<mac4lin theme in use>/gtk-2.0/Panel/panel-bg-trans.png

I tried making the translucent background as the default. Unfortunately, GTK doesn't like pixmaps with alpha set. Btw, from the screenshot it appears that you hafn't installed the Pidgin-AWN theme.
