Mac4Lin version 0.3 Released!

24th October 2007

Mac4Lin is back! A new version, more changes, better looks and an overall more polished product. Please read changelog for information of changes in this version. It gives me immense pleasure to inform all that downloads have crossed 110 GB till date!

Mac4Lin now comes with a unified documentation in PDF format. Please go through this for illustrated installation instructions. Also some entities like GTK theme/Pidgin etc. now include two versions. Hence individual README files are only included if there is any need to convey release specific important information to the user which the generic documentation does not include. Read the README file for more details, in such cases.

With the release of GNOME 2.20, there have been issues reported with the Icon theme. Work is going on to make the theme compatible with GNOME 2.20 (found in OpenSUSE 10.3/Ubuntu 7.10 - Gusty etc.). There will be a separate release of Icon theme for GNOME 2.20. Users of this version can replace the original ver.0.3 Icon theme with the new one, which will be released soon after this release. GNOME version can be checked by clicking System Menu > About GNOME. Other components of this package are reported to work with GNOME 2.20. The installation of GTK Metacity theme and Cursors is almost same execpt that the Theme Manager in GNOME 2.20 has a new look.

Thanks to Victor Hugo Casals for the Safari skin, M.Lettner for the panel backgrounds, Calande for the font guide, Mitko for nm-applet icons, Vish for Grub and Buu700 for Usplash screens. I also thank all those who tested the pack and everyone who are directly or indirectly involved in this project.

Apply it, flaunt it, enjoy it!

Thank you for your project. I'm using 0.2 with Ubuntu 7.10, compiz-fusion and Avant Window Navigator, and my desktop looks sweet. Can't wait to download and try 0.3.

I'm just wondering how it'll work with KDE? Are there any differences in GNOME and KDE which would prevent Mac4Lin to work on both equaly well? I'm just about to try it, cause it really looks like a nice piece of works Thank you for that anyway

Yep the pack mostly won't work for KDE just coz it was built for GTK. Tho some components like cursors, emerald theme etc. may work. Nevertheless you may try and report back what components work and what don't. Things which I'm sure won't work: GTK Theme, Icon theme, GDM Login (unless you use both KDE and GNOME and GDM is set as the default login manager).

Your project sounds like my dream come true. I am a mac lover, falling for linux with every new thing I learn about it, but dearly missing my mac. Since I am a linux wannabe and have to ask some very basic questions:
-does mac4lin 'only' look like mac or actually run mac software?
-I use fedora (8) and gnome on a dell inspiron 1501: can I use mac4lin?

Thanks for the great project and any help!
