Did someone manage to solve the nautilus elementary problem. In my case it doesn't work with macbuntu and I stumbled upon other complaints in the same matter. Or at least let's implement some other file manager

At the beginning, what is the problem? Can you write something more? I am working on Nautilus Elementary and noticed any complex problems.

Well, for starters the problem came when I first installed macbuntu and NE (nautilus elementary). The menubar disappeared and didn't want to turn on. There was no preferences record in the menu. It was buggy and wacky and kind of sluggish.

However though when I installed NE on a clean slate and then macbuntu it worked and still works fine. And don't know where the problem was but I am guessing some of the scripts required for macbuntu were screwing with the NE

Thanks, I will examine it. Although in the new version NE will be installed by default, so, I certainly will test better :)

For the previous version I was using the following script


#!/bin/bash
export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0
~/bin/eclipseEE/eclipse


and the result was quite smooth. Now we went back to scratch where the background is the title color. Any fixes for this version? Great job by the way I really love it.

Previous version? 10.10 (v2.3) is the first version with Application Menu as default Global Menu. Do not fully understand, can you send a screenshot?

Also, you can install Gnome GlobalMenu known from version 10.04 (v2.3 & <), here is the patch:

this is my screenshot, I am not refering to the menu of eclipse, but to the background color, check the contrast in the Run button for example. I didn't know I could have the eclipse menu globally now. Thanks :).

I fixed it by hashing

#class "*Toolbar" style "toolbar"
#widget_class "*Toolbar" style "toolbar"

in the ~/.themes/Macbuntu/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

and run it like

#!/bin/bash
export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0
~/bin/eclipseEE/eclipse

everything works quite smoothly now :) thanks again.

Hi, just posting that I had a problem when I uninstalled this theme. Everything's fine, except nautilus. Only when I use 'gksudo nautilus' does it looks fine, but otherwise it looks like it does in the screenshot below. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Please keep in mind that I'm no computer expert, but I'm not a complete newbie.

Other than this problem, I have to say that this is an amazing theme with a wonderful attention to detail. :)

Try gksudo gnome-appearance-properties in the terminal and choose a theme there.

That's right. If theme which you use isn't installed in /usr/share/themes

Copy the theme to the above folder.

sudo cp ~/.themes/THEME_NAME /usr/share/themes/

dude, does it make any changes to your video driver? cause it made my opengl performance so much slower and when I tried uninstalling it had no effect. The only way out was a system re-installation and I am sure not everyone has enough free time for that crap.

This does not happen often, but it happens.

These are mostly problems with graphic performance. Disable Compiz or reset the settings helps, system reinstall is no need :|

Sorry about that.

oh sorry, what i REALLY meant to say was that compiz opengl performance was slower. i know how to turn compiz off, i do it all the time when i need extra power. but the compiz effects were the ones suffering. i dont know why.

Recently top question: How to install Gnome GlobalMenu in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat)?

So, we have many problems with the new global menu (Application Menu Indicator). That is why, I prepared script which installs G2 Global Menu, known from the Macbuntu 10.04 for Ubuntu 10.10.

$ wget http://www.losoft.org/blog/download/macbuntu/g2gm.tar.gz -O /tmp/g2gm.tar.gz && tar xzvf /tmp/g2gm.tar.gz -C /tmp && /tmp/g2gm/g2gm.sh

The script installs and configures G2GM (http://code.google.com/p/gnome2-globalmenu/).

Yeah, now is back the good old global menu :)

Also, I have the recurring Places Menu where the folders reciprocate like that one fellas. how to fix that?

Thank you for a seriously major work, lots of work. Great job. I think some people don't appreciate such work!

On my system, I'm using released 10.10 maverick, 64bit one, with ATI R5670 GFX with ATI 10.10 driver.

The Apple Logo showed up but it was in the center of the panel and the search icon was on the otheside of the Apple logo.

One problem: I do not have the File View Places Help showing up. Also one of the posters, showed Gnome Main Menu in their as well. How to get this corrected?

I can't use compiz effects in MacUbuntu and when I use Eclipse don't show menus. What I can do?

In relation to the problem of Eclipse, please read this http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?action=knowledgebase&content=129021&kbid=496 or install "Gnome GlobalMenu patch for Macbuntu 10.10".

Compiz should be working, but...
To run Compiz effects, you need to install / upgrade your video drivers (System -> Administration -> Additional drivers) and turn on animation (System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Visual effects).

Hi,
when you click on your desktop and then click on places in global menu it shows so many repetitive entries in it.
Is there a workaround to fix this?

You can check the desktop recording here http://www.4shared.com/video/_4OywdtV/places.html?
