It only looks/feels like a Mac. Apple doesn't allow to run Mac software on any other platform

Yes, the basic requirement of Mac4Lin is a GTK based DE. So GNOME is all that is required. It'll run on Fedora 8 with GNOME. However, the installation procedure may differ. If you get stuck while installing then you may seek the help of some Fedora user (in case the procedure is different in Fedora).

infra red dude,

have you updated your documentation for hardy heron? AWN part, i think, is not correct. i tried to replace gutsy with hardy in the links that are to be added in the sources.list and type wget http://download.tuxfamily.org/syzygy42/reacocard.asc in the terminal but tuxfamily.org didn't reply. because of this i can't continue installing AWN...

PS dont know if this is the right place to post this...

thanks for the link. i have found out that AWN is not yet stable and it decreases usability, IMO.

Mac4Lin is back!

This is the version 1.0 Release Candidate. Some components are still under development. Currently the shell script is not able to set the GDM theme, cursor theme, sounds, emerald theme. They need to be manually set.

Also components like Firefox3, Thunderbird theme, awn theme/plugins etc. are still under development. The Mozilla themes may not be stable. Hence use the non-core components of Mac4Lin at your own risk. Documentation is still in the pipeline. I decided to release the RC anyway so that patrons can start using it and update to the stable version when development is complete.

Whats new: Mac4Lin v1.0 RC - 9th September, 2008

New! Automated Installer in the form of a shell script
New GDM theme
Supports the newest version of GNOME and Xfce
New Mozilla themes specifically built for Mac4Lin
Adium style AWN status icons for Pidgin
Mac style scrollbars, menus
Other tweaks in GTK theme
Adium sounds for Pidgin
New usplash

Keeping up the tradition I'm including the download stats. SF.net alone has served about 10.4TB as on today! I'm also happy to announce that Mac4Lin was one of the winners of FOSS Awards 2008.

Instructions:

Download the Mac4Lin_v1.0_RC.tar.gz archive to any folder. Extract the archive and run Mac4Lin_Install_v1.0_RC.sh file.

1) No, the project has not been ported to KDE. Unfortunately there was ZERO response from the KDE community when I asked for help as I'm not a KDE guy.

2) Yep yep.. screenies would be up soon

I'm happy to inform you all that Mac4Lin now uses the SVN version control system. The latest version Mac4Lin v1.0 RC2 is available there. Users may checkout to download the bleeding edge version.

The required info is provided here:

Subversion Server: https://mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net

Path to Repository: /svnroot/mac4lin

Access instructions:

To access a Subversion repository, configure your Subversion client as follows:

* Hostname: mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net
* Port: 443
* Protocol: HTTPS
* Repository Path: /svnroot/mac4lin

For clients that use a URL string:

https://mac4lin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mac4lin

Mac4Lin v1.0RC2 has not been released and hence is not available on the Downloads page. It can only be obtained through SVN. Comments, suggestions, complaints are welcome as always

A lot of people have been asking me how to use subversion. I've blogged about using subversion so that more people can pull down the Mac4Lin v1.0 RC2 file and here. Head here: http://phoenix-ani.blogspot.com/2009...d-install.html

Hope thats helpful

Mac4Lin SVN was down for sometime. I've restructured the whole package and updated some files. Kindly sync your copy again
