Hi all
Post all the necessary suggestion in this thread .. Starting off 1'st can we have something like this in Mac4Lin .5 ? Taken from here .. This Blue Mac logo and curved panel look awesome :) Taken from here
The current theme is not Gnome 2.2 compatible :( So can we see something like this in .5 ?

Oops! Sorry guys... been a bit busy. Yeah you could post all the requests in this thread :)

@Shashwat
1) I'm avoiding bundling the Apple logo as it may create problems. However, if you still want it then I'll tell you how to use it in the icon theme. I can't include it in Mac4Lin for distribution.

2) The curved panel, unfortunately, can't be had in Mac4Lin ver.0.4 and later. This is coz from 0.4 Mac4Lin has support for MacMenu GTK hack. Curved bars can't be used there. To maintain theme consistency I can't use the curved background.

With a bit of hacking you can get the curved panel background. If you guys want it then I'll test and post the files in the Mac4Lin thread. But it wouldn't be included in any distribution. Do lemme know if you guys want it.

The second reason is that since Mac4Lin will give you Leopard like interface, the curved panel is no longer available.

All components of Mac3Lin ver.0.3a and above are compatible with both GNOME 2.20 and GNOME 2.18 and haf been fully tested.

Also those of you who are a bit adventerous can goto the .icons folder in your home folder and then Mac4Lin icon folder. There are more icons bundled (like the light blue tiger folders, the default leopard folders etc.) Do trace them out and use them :)

@abhi

@rayraven
That would take some time for me to work on it.. since it'll be as good as starting from scratch! Any screenshots?

There are some others too i guess, ported from os x.
Gotta look.
And why would it be like starting from scratch just to include a few themes?

^^^ Oh ok. They are already ported? I thot they need to be ported hence starting from scratch. Since Mac4Lin is Leopard centric I'd like to kno, are these theme available for Leopard....

Think Zen.
AFAIK , No.
These themes are for ShapeShifter and it doesnt work with Leopard.
But, just in case, try asking arya or goobi.

Sound good.
Just upload em on sourceforge, they may not be available always,
Carbonit was reupped by someone after it was lost.
So just in case.If it's ok that is.

EDIT: Added more themes to my previous post.

Regards,
ray

99% of the leopard icons haf been included :) Mac4Lin won't haf those icons but since they look great I'm thinking of compiling them and releasing them as a separate theme :)

in search of myself
I have few suggestions

1. No window decoration(only for Gdebi package installer) when I install .deb package by double clicking on it.



2. No decoration + No mac4lin icons when i launch nautilus from terminal.

Remove these bugs. Also change folder icon. Current icon is too bright for me.
