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.

I meant that the software was foxit pdf reader not firefox web browser. When I open pdf document with foxit, it will open the web site of ads. As before, it just showed the ads in the corner of the software with a picture. But now the ads disappears in foxit, instead of being opened in web browser without clicking the ads.
Thanks for your answering!

Yes that's right, Application Menu isn't perfect. We have to wait for the patch, here you can keep track, https://launchpad.net/indicator-appmenu

A minor suggestion.. I don't like the force quit icon.. it looks like I have an "Error" on my computer looking at it from the top panel. It would be great when its not clicked/moused over it that it be grey colored tones.. and when the icon is clicked/moused over it that it turns to the actual red color. If this is possible that would be great ;)

Screenshot Desktop(looking like Error): http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/4113/screenshotgi.jpg

Everything of the Theme is working perfectly on my computer, looks & sounds great(I honestly love your theme) =)

Hi,
I freshly installed Ubuntu 10.10 (didn't upgrade) on my laptop.
And then I installed Macbuntu 10.10.
I think fonts are not getting installed properly.
I see same "Ubuntu" font in my font settings.
Am I missing something?

Nothing missed, it should work. Can you choose the font manually? If not, then the script failed to install.
You must have:
.fonts.conf file in home directory
/mac folder in /usr/share/fonts/ directory

if not please install manually, Lucida Grande fonts are located in the macbuntu package /fonts/latin or /fonts/gbk

Hello. Thank you for this beautiful Ubuntu theme! Icons, windows borders, sounds, fonts all are great. I just have some problems with changing compiz settings. All settings, animations set by you works fine, but when I want to change an animation, for example set vacum instead of fade in closing window animation it just doesn’t work, works only the animation set by installation script.

This is strange, I do not know what it is, but I will find an answer. Meanwhile, please reset Compiz settings to default then set animations manually. Sorry.

First, really good work about the pack, but i had problems in gtk theme.

1) I am using elementary mod for nautilus and the 3 buttons in right for icons,list,details are vissible really ugly and squared.

2) The slider in sound indicator is ugly too

3) In some places as vertical separator is drawn one black line.

All others seems to be very sexy.

Congratulations for the job.

Unfortunately, you're right :), it does not look good. I'll try to fix these flaws as soon as I can.

I do not have too much experience in creating syntactically correct gtk themes, but I promise that I will try :)

Thanks for the info

I really enjoy this. It's been a looong time since I used a mac (my broken - rip - powerbook G4 resides on the shelve behind me) and I really like it.
Well the GTK theme is not quite to my liking, I'm using something selfmade/assembled/collected/hacked. ;)

But the icon-theme is just wonderfully complete and matching.

Just one tiny issue I might want to take a look at, and you might as well: the reload page button in firefox does not get scaled to the correct proportions (too large?).

But honestly - this is a themepack I really enjoy. Many thanks to the authors!

I got the reload icon in firefox sized properly down by simply using gimp to scale: .icons/Macbuntu-Icons/actions/scalable/view-refresh.png to 96x96. Looks aaaaal great now.

"selfmade/assembled/collected/hacked" sounds nice ;)

I will add 96x96 view-refresh.png, but I think may be something in connection with your s/a/c/h theme :)
by default, firefox gets icons from the actions/gtk folder or at least should.

Thanks for the info

Report

Well it should probably, but it does use the view-refresh.png.

What makes firefox look even better than that scaling I did:

cd ....../Macbuntu-Icons/actions/
cp gtk/media-playlist-repeat.png scalable/view-refresh.png

I'm not quite shure if this breaks anything else, but firefox... well:

I quite like it this way.

Hey it is awesome!!!
anyway there is a very big problem for me..
I need to use 2 different monitors in "separate mode" so as far as I know I load 2 windows session through the same logon..

Now I can't do it anymore.. the second screen remains with background picture without loading session (so I can move mouse over it but I don't have panel or nautilus support).

How can I fix?

It looks bad. Strange, the script changes only Compiz profile, does not changes any hardware settings.

Please try to reset Compiz settings to default profile, open CompizConfig Settings Manager, go to Preferences and reset profile to default values by pressing "Reset to default".

Terminal way:
nohup metacity --replace > /dev/null &
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz
nohup compiz --replace >/dev/null &

Here is my Compiz profile, works with two screens in TwinView & Separate X mode on NVidia GeForce:
http://www.losoft.org/blog/download/macbuntu/compiz-profile.tar.gz

Same profile works without problems on ATI with TwinView support (Separate X not tested).

Hi There,

Congrats on the effort; still one big problem from my point of view - the GTK theme is far from ready; lots of visual glitches and issues and is not feeling quite right..Especially the bottom of the menus in the windows, with those 2 weired squares...

I think one of the best gtk theme, emulating osx is still Aurora Leopard BSM; it would be great if someone would take it into the new Equinox engine (i don;t like the huge arrows in the menus from Aurora), it would be for sure a hit.

Anyway this is my point of view..

Rgds.

Hello!

I've tried Macbuntu alpha for Ubuntu 10.10 on the final-release of Ubuntu 10.10

You have to change the version-check-var in the install.sh from

#UBUVER="10.10"
UBUVER="Maverick"
UBUNTU="Ubuntu $UBUVER"

to

UBUVER="10.10"
#UBUVER="Maverick"
UBUNTU="Ubuntu $UBUVER"

then the install.sh works without the option "force". :-)


It seems, that you have a little error in the "nautilus-tweaks.rc"

here is my terminal-output (for example, I just want open nautilus):

krebsi83@notebook:~$ nautilus
home/username/.themes/Macbuntu/gtk-2.0/nautilus-tweaks.rc:72: error: unexpected keyword `engine', expected string constant

I've try to fix the error, but I have no luck.

Can you try to fix it?

But else: GREAT WORK!!!!

sorry for my bad English ;-)

Macbuntu script is safe, but in the fact it runs with root privileges and this is already becoming a dangerous.

Macbuntu does not contain any malicious code, as it guarantees. I guarantee the safe code only if the application comes from this address

https://sourceforge.net/projects/macbuntu/

I do not put this package in any other place outside the https://sourceforge.net/projects/macbuntu/files/

Remember, check whether a link leads to this page. Otherwise, stop downloading.

This is your computer and take care of him, never run applications with root privileges if you do not trust the software or you are unsure about the origin of this software.

It is very possible that soon I will prepare a PPA for Macbuntu, until then keep checking the origin of the package.

Thank you for your attention, have fun :)
