===================================

[ FAQ ]

question: the buttons for the window border being on the left,
is that a theme thing or can that be configured somewhere?


Answer: ( original tutorial by -fissy. )

using the "run program" action or a terminal, start gconf by typing:

gconf-editor

and hitting enter.

This program is a bit like the registry editor for windows.

In the tree on the left you need to go to /apps/metacity/general/

There is then a key in the right pane called "button_layout"

edit this key so that it reads:

CODE
close,minimize,maximize:menu

or
CODE
close,maximize,minimize:menu


enjoy!

oh man, Please!! post the sources for that menu bar at the top. Even if it's still a little unstable, I would love to have that. Also, is that gdesklets starterbar at the bottom?

Danny.

Would you mind posting the sources and binaries for i386 & ppc of that program you use to create the menubar (I know it's still beta, but if you make it available other people may help you testing, developping and fixing bugs in it).

Thanks.

Danny,

How can I make a Mac OSX menu bar like yours in the screenshots?

What software can achieve this result?

This theme is a GTK 2.x theme and I assume it should be done by GTK+ software.

Thanks a lot.

Nice theme (and nice screenshot).
Is there a way to have the global application menu under GNOME (like in your screenshots)?

Unsure why, but I guess it due to limitation of bandwidth of the download site "pchome".

I'll fix it soon.

maybe move those files to another site.

Nice theme, I really like it.

You say the menubar is a program, can you tell us which program?

Hello!

This is cool theme, thank you!

But I don't like that when I select some
buttons, this button is white and a text in this button is white too. So text is unreadable :-(

How to fix that?

I installed your theme as your instruction said, but the result is not as good as yours. My buttons and menus don't have the round aqua background. What's wrong? My system is Fedora Core 1.

There is no background for my buttons!

Hi !

I'm not sure, but I think it seems to be the GTK pixmap engine not installed or not works fine.

Another very deserved "Great work".

Just two notes:
a) Where I can find all the "MacOS-X" icons found on the screenshots you have posted?. When I install this theme, for example, I can't see "Trash" or "Folder" icon but only a standard one

b) a very frequent error: /root/.themes/MacOS-X/gtk-2.0/icons/iconrc:116: Unable to locate image file in pixmap_path: "gtk-two-column.png"

I'm glad you like this theme. :)

a) you may find lots of similar icons from the following page :
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=2242&PHPSESSID=88d153fa3186431707c3850900bde387


b) you may get the missing file at the following URL :
http://home.pchome.com.tw/young/sysop007/icons/gtk-two-column.png
then copy it to ~/.themes/MacOS-X/gtk-2.0/icons/

Same question here! What software do you use for your docker. It really looks like the osX one.

Report

It's "StarterBar". you may find it at the following URL : http://gdesklets.gnomedesktop.org/

and I'm glad you like it. I'm a great Mac fan too. :)

I have to line up with the other posts and say "wow, what launch bar are you running?!" =) Noticed that you said it is some sort of hacked version and not the original gdesklet. How come you havent made a beta/alpha rel out of it? It's not like the non-hacked version is very stable anyways and I know Im itching to try this one out. If you descide to make my day a whole lot better and send it my way then I wouldnt hold it against you ;)
