Description:

Hey!

MacUltimate Leopard it's an icon pack that I compiled and improved for myself and decided to share with all the lovers of the Mac design.

This icon theme fits smooth with the great Mac4Lin Project.
In fact, I didn't like some things from the Mac4Lin Icon Pack, so that was one of the reasons to made this icon pack (by the way, the pack has already some months, but lately I've been improving it, and make it look really nice with the Ubuntu 8.04, with all the updates).

It's majorly a mix of "LeopardX V2.6" and "Mac4Lin Icon Theme", but has some icons from "black-white 2 Style" and "Clearlooks OSX", from one or another icon packs and some I've made myself.

Enjoy It!


As a bonus for all that use the awesome Avant Window Navigator, I share my custom-icons, so that some applications look nice in the bar (because not all things are applied by the icon pack). If you want to use it, just copy and paste the icons in /home/*user*/.config/awn/custom-icons



[size=4]***** UPDATE - Jun 15 2008 *****[/size]

Hey there!

This time, I bring you improvements to the icon pack.

I've added some new application icons I have and improved some other icons that were already in the previous pack (such as gtk related icons - cut, copy, search...). Maybe the main difference that you'll notice is that I've changed the network-manager icon and now it's using the one from Mac4Lin Icon Pack, but I've made the one when there's 0% of network to look like the Mac one (looks like an inverted triangle).


Because in the comments an user said that would like to have the "black ubuntu icon" instead of the "apple icon", to anyone who what it too, the quickest way to do that is open your terminal and paste this:

cd /home/*your_user*/.icons/MacUltimate_Leopard/scalable/places
ln -s -f main-menu.png start-here.png
ln -s -f main-menu.png gnome-main-menu.png
ln -s -f main-menu.png distributor-logo.png
killall gnome-panel


Of course, don't forget to replace *your_user* with your username.


I would like to call your ATTENTION to the fact the I've changed the name of the folder where the pack is installed from LeopardX_V3.1 (it was a mistake I've made, because this was the name I used to call it and I've forgotten to change when made the previous pack upload) to MacUltimate_Leopard. This way it's more correct. Before you install this updated pack, I would recommend you to remove the previous pack (because it will not be necessary anymore). To do that so, run your terminal and paste the following line:

rm -r /home/*your_user*/.icons/LeopardX_V3.1
(Once again, replace *your_user* with your username)


Finally, there's an updated AWN Custom Icons if you want to use it.


Enjoy it! :D



[size=4]***** UPDATE - Jun 18 2008 *****[/size]

Not much to say. Only bug fixes (pointed by user in the comments and some others I've found), some new icons and an alternative mirror.



[size=4]***** UPDATE - Jul 24 2008 *****[/size]

Hello everybody!


Here I am again with an updated MacUltimate Leopard icon pack.


Like in the previous updates, this one brings some bugfixes (there were some icons in places they shouldn't be, etc), improvements (I think I could make some icons better, so I did) and, of course, new icons. In this particular point, there are icons from some applications I recently installed (and maybe some of you have them too) and, what I think it's the best, all the Wine-related icons are now Mac-a-like (if you go to Applications -> Wine, you will know what I'm talking about).


This time, I decided to make the icon pack with the "black ubuntu icon" in the top panel. I made this decision because now I use it and it seems like many people prefers it instead the "apple icon". But for everyone who want the "apple icon", just run your terminal and paste the following lines (don't forget to replace *your_user* with your username):

cd /home/*your_user*/.icons/MacUltimate_Leopard/scalable/places
mv -f start-here_.png start-here.png
mv -f gnome-main-menu_.png gnome-main-menu.png
mv -f distributor-logo_.png distributor-logo.png
killall gnome-panel



Finally, if you use the amazing Avant Window Navigator, there's an updated AWN Custom Icons if you want to fit AWN with your icon pack (to install, see above the instructions).


Well, this is it. Hope you enjoy this update, and specially, the MacUltimate Leopard!


[size=4]***** UPDATE - Set 27 2008 *****[/size]

Hi people!

Heres a small update for the package. Some new application icons and some bugfixes.

Enjoy!


[size=4]***** UPDATE - Nov 30 2008 *****[/size]

Hi!

Here I am, once again, to bring you an update of MacUltimate Leopard.
With the new Ubuntu Intrepid, came a new version of Gnome, which as some changes in the icons and made some icons in the package became wrong.
So, with this update, everything is right again: there are some changes, new icons and bugfixes. If you detect something wrong, leave a comment that I'll try to resolve it as soon as I can.

Greetings!


[size=4]***** UPDATE - Dez 10 2008 *****[/size]

Hello everyone!

New icons, bugfixes, some changes... well, a new update to the MacUltimate Leopard! If you want a nicer experience, you should really install this update.
As I said before, if you find something wrong, let me know.

Enjoy!

PS: There's an updated version of AWN Custom Icons too.



[size=4]***** UPDATE - Fev 22 2009 *****[/size]

Hello!

Not really much to say, this time. Some new icons, and 2/3 small bugfixes.
And an updated AWN Custom Icons pack.

Hope you like it!


[size=4]***** UPDATE - Jul 14 2009 *****[/size]

Hi! Long gone since the last update. Here's the pack with some new icons, and in a new host.
I couldn't solve the "problem" with the restart icon, so if anyone knows what can I do, I would appreciate very much.

Enjoy. ;)


[size=5]***** UPDATE - Jan 27 2010 *****[/size]

Hey there, everyone! Half an year has passed since the last update. How the time runs... =D

Sorry for not post this update earlier, but my life lately has been very busy, so only recently I had the opportunity to install Ubuntu 9.10 - Karmic Koala and made the necessary changes required in the icon pack.

So, it contains some new icons and the necessary bugs fixes to some things that were changed in this new version of GNOME, included in Karmic Koala.


About the Custom AWN Icons, there's no update because I no longed use it, because now I use AWN 0.3.9 and the integration with the system icons is awesome. To install this version, just search for "awn-testing ppa" and install it (the package name is avant-window-navigator-trunk).


Hope you all alright and I wish you enjoy this icon theme. =D

UPDATE: The previous package had problems extracting some files. Now there's an updated package, with no problems.

Yes, and that's to do, but IMO one should be included with the package, maybe a solid black one like the apple icon.

Take a look at the Mashup of Crashbit icons I uploaded. Its pure Linux and no windows or macNcheese look. Think of it this way, Linux users can update our OS everyday of the week, the other guys wait years for a new version of the OS. Like Shuttleworth said, Linux will be moving past macs in the purty dept someday soon.

Well, I have to say once again, that's strange 'cause here it appears fine. But that doesn't mean I don't have a solution for you. Just run your terminal and paste this lines (don't forget to change *user*):

cd /home/*user*/.icons/MacUltimate_Leopard/24x24/apps/
cp gnome-netstatus-0-24.png ../../scalable/apps/
cp gnome-netstatus-25-49.png ../../scalable/apps/
cp gnome-netstatus-50-74.png ../../scalable/apps/
cp gnome-netstatus-75-100.png ../../scalable/apps/

I'm pretty sure that this will work. Give feedback, please.

live and let live. Linux gives the choice of having what you want. We know what's under the hood, but why not customize a little. It's what I love most about Linux...

Well, I think that the Opera's icon is nice, but if you don't think that, I've this options for you:
- Another Opera icon: http://i38.tinypic.com/2cep15i.jpg ;
- Use the Safari icon instead of the Opera icon: http://i35.tinypic.com/2cscm5s.jpg ;
- Remove the Opera icon and use the default one;

Choose one option and navigate to your /home/*user*/.icons/MacUltimate_Leopard/scalable/apps folder. In there, you'll have all the applications icons. Search for the Opera one (opera.png) and delete it. If you want to use the default icon, you're done, but if you want to use one of the other two icons, rename it to opera.png and paste it in the folder. After that, kill the gnome-panel (Alt+F2: killall gnome-panel), and now you have the Opera icon of your choice.

People who want use a Mac OSX should buy a Apple. Who want use Windows should buy the Windows-Licence. But Linux should have a other and own look! This kind of rips destroyes Linux completly. I don't like it. I voted "bad". Then the people begin to get normal? :-?

That's your opinion, I respect but don't agree with.

Well, I have to admit, I not only like the Mac design, I like MacOSX Leopard (and almost everything Apple related), but I don't have the money to buy an Apple computer, so why can't I have my Ubuntu with a taste of Mac? I like the Mac design and I really like Ubuntu too (it's the best Linux distro I've every tried), so why I can't have a Mac-a-like theme (including icon pack) in my Ubuntu? It's two things that I like joined in only one. It's my choice, it's my taste.

And unlike you, I don't think this destroy Linux. Linux is all about configuration, so, if I'm configuring mine in a way I like, I'm not destroying Linux. It has a Mac design, but in what it matters, it's still Linux.

I understand and I know that the standard Linux-look is simply and boring. For improving the look and feel of Linux come gnome-look to life and give you the possibility to choose the look you want. But what I miss is a new big standard look for Linux, beautiful and different to the Mac/Windows-look. Icons are a big part of them... But the trend is copying Mac-Icons and this can't be the right way. I don't mean only you.. You can find some beautiful Icon-Sets here they go this way, too.Of course Apple-OS have a great style, but this is a earning from Apple. Of course everybody can use the style he want and like... but around the world there are a lot of people who want know and identify his system like a Linux-System and not something with parts of everybody. One ask for you! If you love Ubuntu so like me, you don't prefer a typical Ubuntu-look from your lovely OS? Why don't support Ubuntu for a better look? You really don't wont identify your OS what it's really is? The problem with Linux Themes are that they give you any look you want. But if you look to a Mac-Screen you know it's a Mac. The same happens with Windows. If you see some Linux-Screens you don't know really what System is running... I hope you understand me, too and I hope I let you think a little bit about ;)

Linux is freedom... so user can have a choice. I vote for that.

Would anybody buy a Windows for its look? (ok, vista is not badlooking)

Boy you have your X-Icons and your ?freedom? ! But think that this kind of stuff irritates the identity of Linux. I hope there are enough intelligent people who will find a good design for Linux and give Linux his own identity and good look. Yes I take the things clear and I am a correct person with a right opinion ... I think ;) Of course if you like more the Mac-Design, why you don't buy a Apple?

I'm desolated with the Linux audience today.

You might be another Ubuntu noob introduced to Linux and hyped about the word "freedom", but confusing "freedom" with direspect to copyright. That's anarchism, so don't insert the word "freedom" here if you don't know what the fuck that word it means.

So, I disrespect copyright for having some mac icons...? Nobody said they weren't from Apple.

I know what freedom means, and I though we all had freedom of speech... My mistake, I guess.

Since most (all?) of the artwork is owned by Apple, this theme cannot possibly be released under GPL!

I like it, don't get me wrong. It's just not yours to release under an open license.

Yeah, you're totally right. I didn't know what to put in the license field, so I checked some other Icon Themes (including the Mac ones) and most of them says GPL, so I did the same. That was not the better way and by that fact, the license is changed.

I don't use the Control Center (I use the common Preferences/Administration) to manage my System, so I didn't realize that bug in the icon pack. Thanks for the lights up.

The quickest way to make the keyboard icon normal is just run your terminal and paste this line:

rm /home/*your_user*/.icons/MacUltimate_Leopard/scalable/apps/32/gnome-settings-keybindings.png

Now you have a normal keyboard icon in your Control Center.
