Ubuntu Mac OS X theme


To get Mac-like theme for Ubuntu, we can use mac4lin or Macbuntu. But mac4lin is not supported on Ubuntu 11.10. To get the Mac appearance for Ubuntu 11.10 we will use Macbuntu. It is made to make the appearance of Ubuntu 11.10 to look like Mac OS X
So here's how to install the package for Ubuntu 11.10 to get unity as Mac OS X.

1.) Download Macbuntu for Ubuntu 10.10 from here: 

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/macbuntu/files/

2.) Then uncompress the package and switch to Macbuntu folder:

cd ~/Downloads
$tar -zxvf Macbuntu-10.10.tar.gz
cd Macbuntu-10.10

3.) In the Macbuntu edit the install.sh :
 

$gedit install.sh
 

look for following code


    chk_system()
    {
    echo “”
    echo “Checking Ubuntu version…”
    s=`cat /etc/issue | grep -i “$UBUNTU”`
    if [ ! -n "$s" ]; then
    echo “Failed. System not supported, script will end here”
    echo “To ignore their compatibility with current OS try ./install.sh force”
    echo “Exiting…”
    exit 1;
    fi
    echo “Passed”
    }


remove it with
  

chk_system()
    {
    echo “Passed”
    }


save it and  run it:

./install.sh
