How can I Change the Wether Icons? They are just small for panel and so they get too ugly on Docky weather docklet.

I tried to delete them, so gnome could use the Default ones, but then it turns out that it is not easy as I tought.

I will try to add extra size icons as soon as posible.

There are two folders Macbuntu-Icons/status/16 and Macbuntu-Icons/status/22 in these directories you will find stock_weather icons.

You can also copy higher resolution icons from the stock theme: /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/status

cp /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/status/stock_weather* ~/.icons/Macbuntu-Icons/status/scalable/

cp /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/status/weather* ~/.icons/Macbuntu-Icons/status/scalable/

Uhm, I don't know if it is a problem/bug, but if I open firefox than the buttons like edit or file doesn't appear in the upper bar.
Can this be fixed, except its not the same bug/problem?

The script doesn't really worked for me :(

The menu itself isn't compatible with some applications. The script works perfectly.

Can't install this theme.
I unzip the package to the desktop and then I drag the install.sh file into the terminal window.
After that i hit the enter button and then the terminal says: Permission denied. Whats wrong here?

Do you hit the enter in Terminal window or Nautilus? Make sure that terminal window is focused.

You can check install.sh file permissions. "Allow executing file as program" must be checked.

Hi,

This theme is brilliant. Clean and simple. Makes Linux so much more inviting. I've installed it on my Ubuntu 10.10 and it's just like using a Mac. In fact I liked it so much I went and installed it on two other PCs.

Thank you so much.

To be able to uninstall Macbuntu you must use the uninstaller from the package you have already installed.

installed version:
cat ~/.macbuntu/current

uninstall:
~/.macbuntu/$(cat ~/.macbuntu/current)/uninstall.sh

For some reason the toolbar and the icons background color in Eclipse IDE mismatch the general theme color. I've uploaded a screenshont (see link)

GTK theme is eligible for a full rebuild. Meanwhile, you can hash the following lines in the gtkrc (~/.themes/Macbuntu/gtk-2.0/gtkrc).

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

Unfortunately, it affects other applications.

Thanks for your reply, you are already doing great job, i'm really impressed by the theme :)

Is there any other solution that wouldn't impact the other programs? Or, ideally, to make Eclipse to look just like all the other Gtk programs using the Macbuntu theme?

There is a very bad error in the Application Menu. Some apps lose their usefulness due to the lack of access to the menu. One of these applications is Eclipse.

To recover the menu we have to create for own space with UBUNTU_MENUPROXY environment variable set to 0.

Make a script called Eclipse on your desktop and put this:

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

After that always if you run this script eclipse will regain its menu.

One thing, change the path ~/Programs/eclipse/ on your own path to the eclipse.

Nice.

It is Cairo-Dock? How to turn on opened application indicator?

Report

I found it. There is a bug in MacOSX theme. Indicator image path (/home/fab/.config/cairo-dock/current_theme/indicator.png) is incorrect, should be only indicator.png or full path to custom image.

The Indicator for open Apps works correct. (???) Or what you mean?
