I stumbled upon some primitive article about the latest macbuntu version. Though the file manager looks different. This is what I am talking about http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTiA8GGPoxg

From what I see it's about the alpha version but still the installation instruction are no different the the one on the sourceforge page.

I don't know if this is some kind of new mod I don't know about or it's something completely different. I am not even sure if this is nautilus, but i think this path bar http://bit.ly/ayn6iq looks better than this on http://bit.ly/9lHdDn

I also found a video here http://bit.ly/9tg3xw (not sure if it's the same thing) and certainly looks better than the current.

I hope you agree and I didn't hit any nerves. Just trying to help improving the project

Thanks for your comments and suggestions. This project is all of you and is open for any suggestions, which improves it.

You talking about Nautilus-Elementary. I agree that the standard Nautilus does not look interesting with Macbuntu.

We can vote, and if the majority votes in favor of Nautilus-Elementary, it will be included in the next version.

Same with Cairo-Dock, I get many requests to join the dock to the project instead of Docky. Also we vote and see which program you like more.

I will look for where we can prepare a poll.

There is a bug in version 2.3: you cannot use the uninstall script (tested on Ubuntu 10.04.1 - maybe the Ubuntu version is what caused this).

here is the error when running the Uninstall script:

./uninstall.sh

Macbuntu - Mac OS X Transformation Pack

Deinstallation script

Attention!
This script will slide back to default Ubuntu desktop
all Macbuntu-10.04 components will be removed permanently

Checking Ubuntu version...
Passed

Checking currently installed version of Macbuntu-10.04...
Failed. The script is not able to determine what version is currently installed
Exiting...


I was able to uninstall it but removing the Ubuntu version check in the uninstall script.

Any error during installation?

Seems that the installation did not complete correctly. At the end script saves the current version to ~/.macbuntu/current, if the file do not exists you can not uninstall. The message is displayed: "Failed. The script is not able to determine what version is currently installed..."

I assume that if the file does not exist, nothing is installed. So better to abort the whole process. Is it good? Yes.

The problem is, what happend that the file was not saved. An error or maybe the installation is aborted?

Good job!
But I have a problem in Maverick, when I set the panel transparent, the notification area is still gray and it looks awful.

How can I fix this? maybe it's a problem in the gtk theme.

Hi

There is a problem in the gtk theme. I need to fix the whole theme, meanwhile, you can disable panel.rc in gtkrc.

1. Open theme gtkrc
gedit ~/.themes/Macbuntu/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

2. Remove or # the /include "panel.rc"/ line (line no: 20)

You can change now the background inage to transparent one, ie. "panel-bg-trans.png" included in theme Panel folder ~/.themes/Macbuntu/gtk-2.0/Panel/

Hi,
Mouse pointer automatically changes to default "DMZ white" when I hover it on Oracle Virtualbox window and/or Netbeans Window.
Don't know whether it's for all "java/Sun" Windows? :)
I have installed (not upgraded) Ubuntu 10.10 and then installed Macbuntu on it.

Something is wrong with the cursor. Not exactly known whether this is a problem with compiz, gtk or gnome. Here is the thread: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/459647

The solution to this problem, is associated with changing the default system cursor: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/459647/comments/8

My way (work for me):
sudo mv /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme /usr/share/icons/default/-index.theme.backup

Get it back:
sudo mv /usr/share/icons/default/-index.theme.backup /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

I just needed to change "/usr/share/icons/default/index.theme" to Macbuntu-Cursors.
Now it's working. :)

There was a two known problems in scripts.

First problem in install.sh:
- Wrongly interpreted a choice of fonts, therefore, instead of gbk was installed the latin font and vice versa.

Second problem in uninstall.sh:
During the uninstall process was selected library, which should not be removed. A moment of inattention could lead to remove the applications associated with the library libqtgui4, this could be: gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly, skype, virtualbox, vlc

Thx to sendblink23 for a "warning".

Do not trust me implicitly, also I may be wrong :)

PPA will be available soon, the visual installer/configurator will be much safer than a bash script.

I installed the last Macbuntu version on Ubuntu Maverick 32bit just to show it to a friend, and now when I run ./uninstall it says

Checking currently installed version of Macbuntu-10.10...
Failed. The script is not able to determine what version is currently installed
Exiting...

I want my Gnome back....

I have tried also ./uninstall force and it was the same

Is there eventually a manual way to uninstall?

Looks like you did not install properly. To uninstall, you need known what version you installed, then make folder ".macbuntu" in your home directory, there create a file named "current" (case sensitive) with the following content: "10.10-2.3" for Macbuntu 10.10 version 2.3.

At the end run ./uninstall.sh from the package you have downloaded.

Command for 10.10-2.3:
mkdir ~/.macbuntu/
echo 10.10-2.3 > ~/.macbuntu/current

Dude I just tested your uninstall script(I wanted to see if it was safe, then I was going to re-install it again).... Yes I only ran the one from the downloaded folder... since I had the .macbuntu & current file inside of it - on my home directory.

Well.. that thing uninstalled literally every application I have manually installed on my 10.10

That I can notice it removed my latest versions of: VLC, VirtualBox(It also deleted my Virtual machines I had in them, for some reason .virtualbox only has settings files in it now), Docky and a couple of others I can't remember the names. Luckily it didn't remove my wine which i have over 16 applications there and i never backed up the settings installings of winetricks of each - I would kill you there if it did lol :P.

Is there something wrong in your uninstall script, or maybe installing the theme that its making a bad backup of what i had originally installed on 10.10?

I have rebooted & also noticed the .macbuntu folder is still left inside the home directory... not sure if that is supposed to be like that.

Eitherway I still have all the deb packages of those applications i installed manually, but it seems odd that it uninstalled all of them.

LOL. I have no clue what you did. The script does not have the power to uninstall this stuff :)

You have to read before you something uninstall.

This is what the script do:
sudo apt-get autoremove docky ubuntu-tweak appmenu-gtk libqtgui4 indicator-applet-appmenu indicator-appmenu

Everything has been installed by the script, However, possible that your software depending on the libqtgui4 library. I do not believe that the program does not show an appropriate message. The program did it, displays a message which software will be uninstalled and you have chosen Yes (Y)

What can I say, think about what you do, read before you agree, do not trust anyone! Even to me ;) Have fun :)

lol Well I read the names of apps and so many more files(well since this theme had so many stuff I imagined it was from the theme alone) that were going to be uninstalled... but I was assuming they were icons from Docky(because I had all those apps on my docky)... oh well forget about it(probably something odd on my system)

Anyways I just finished right now re-installing everything eheheh so I'm back where i was & re-installed your theme afterwards lol I'll just forget about testing the uninstalling and keep using it since it is working fine.

There is problem with the menu in Ubuntu! the menus in Adobe PDF Reader are blank, and the menu items in nautilus repeat many times! My system is Ubuntu 10.10. It's a great work ,and I like it very much, but I want to fix this problem. Thanks!

I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and the theme is working fine for me

By any chance did you reboot your computer 1 or 2 times after running the theme for the 1st time.. because I had the issue of repeated things on menu(nautilus, and other apps menu), but after rebooting it got fixed

no clue of it helps on your side

Now I have no clue about the Adobe PDF Viewer thing, since I don't have that - I use the regular Ubuntu PDF viewer it has by default and I don't see any issues in its menu.

Yes, I have rebooted my PC for several times. But it didn't work. And I found another two problems: 1. The progress-bar is separated by a white line; 2. An App ( foxit reader, maybe some other APP does) opens an website, whenever I open documents. I guess that the website is the ads in the software, and now it always opens the ads without clicking it. Although those are little bugs, but it's not comfortable. Do you have any methods to solve it? Thanks.

The gtk theme, I gotta fix it.
Progress bar looked good in 10.04, but in Maverick wrapping terribly.

Re. 2. I do not understand what you mean. Firefox opens java plugin without question, or something like that? Have you new installed Ubuntu or it was an upgrade? Certainly it has nothing to do with Macbuntu.
