Description:

A usplash theme adapted from this image:
http://www.pure-mirage.com/images/Gallery_Images/Maya/images/3d_Apple_Logo_102.jpg

It looks best at 1024x768 with 24-bit color.

If you are using Ubuntu, I recommend using this to set everything up: http://web.telia.com/~u88005282/sum/index.html
The .deb is located here if you're too lazy to go to the site's download page: http://web.telia.com/~u88005282/sum/archive/deb/startupmanager_1.0.7-1_all.deb



How to compile from source (I assume you extracted the archive's contents to your desktop):

sudo apt-get install build-essential libbogl-dev libusplash-dev
cd ~/Desktop/Gangsta OS X
make

That's it. Then all you have to do is use the start-up manager (if you're using Ubuntu) in System>Administration to add the gangstaosx.so file to your list of usplash themes and select it.

I didn't make it, but here is a login screen that imitates the OS X one very well:

It's from this guide, which I think is the best one to use to make your GNOME look exactly like OS X: http://taimila.com/osx-guide-2.php

Also, I recommend using this icon theme:

Getting bored of OS X proprietary branding on Linux.

I figrued it out. The name of the package is libusplash-dev. I did it from Synaptic PM, but for command line it would be "apt-get install libusplash-dev"

Its Awesome! Very Gangsta. Do you have any good files to modify the login screen (the one where you type in username and password). Is it even possible to change that screen?

Sorry. I forgot to say that you need to
sudo apt-get install build-essential libbogl-dev
first (I think that's the right command).
