  13. How do I get the Mac theme back?

    Macbuntu is great with the Live disk. It is also great after first install 11.04. Upgrade to 11.10 SUKS! cuz it all disappears then its hell to get it back esp. with editing! Disappointed! And wats with the side panel/kicker thingy? it cramps the Macbuntu look...

  14. Why not just make make a downloadable installer that does all this for you? The one failing of linux. All this downloading and nothing "appears" to install. Run terminal, key in all this and that. Please, for us no-so-techno types, make an installer okay?!? Thanks for letting me rant!

  19. Guys dont go for this one, because the project is not in active state due to lot of changes in GTK, so you can better go for this theme which is much a look alike like MAC here is the link http://blog.sudobits.com/2011/12/12/mac-os-x-theme-for-ubuntu-11-10/

  20. how do I get rid of the unity sidebar? It is still showing the old min/max bars on the libre office and a few other programs, is there something I need to change to get the full effects?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Disable unity. Do updates first. Plan to tweak. Don't do this if you don't know linux well. You will have to fiddle with it. Mine works. Me happy.

  22. If your are using Ubuntu 11.10, obviously this theme is not right for you, the code to be edited above was important, it was gonna check if your OS version was compatible to the theme, and since the author of this tutorial told you to edit that block of code the program didn't check you OS version, so let me tell you that THIS THEME IS NOT RIGHT FOR HIGHER VERSION OF UBUNTU, if you're using earlier versions you can use this.

    Truly yours,

    Jed

  24. i want to uninstall after i got this
    "Macbuntu - Mac OS X Transformation Pack

    Deinstallation script

    Attention!
    This script will slide back to default Ubuntu desktop
    all Macbuntu-10.10 components will be removed permanently

    Checking Ubuntu version...
    Failed. System not supported, script will end here
    To ignore their compatibility with current OS try ./uninstall.sh force
    Exiting...
    " how to do?? ? ?

    ReplyDelete
  25. You can edit the uninstall.sh file like you've done to install.sh.
    Just change "system check" part of the file to directly "passed".
    Or more clearly,

    In terminal, change the directory to the macbuntu folder which is a hidden folder at home. Once you're in the directory that contains uninstall.sh, type

    gedit uninstall.sh

    Then you will change the part of the code that you see below:

    chk_system()
    {
    echo “”
    echo “Checking Ubuntu version…”
    s=`cat /etc/issue | grep -i “$UBUNTU”`
    if [ ! -n "$s" ]; then
    echo “Failed. System not supported, script will end here”
    echo “To ignore their compatibility with current OS try ./install.sh force”
    echo “Exiting…”
    exit 1;
    fi
    echo “Passed”
    }


    Change above code to

    chk_system()
    {
    echo “Passed”
    }

    Save and run uninstall.sh
    Say goodbye to the theme.
