Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I'm following this tutorial and also this YouTube tutorial.

On executing this command:

sudo apt-get install mac-os-lion-theme mac-os-lion-cursors mac-os-lion-icons

I'm getting this error:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree        
Reading state information... Done 
E: Unable to locate package mac-os-lion-theme 
E: Unable to locate package mac-os-lion-cursors 
E: Unable to locate package mac-os-lion-icons

Any Idea what I'm doing wrong?

Did the repository get added? sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes needs a sudo apt-get update first - you can't forget that. You can verify that the repository was added with ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d, which will show all of the non-standard repositories available.

It is showing there two things on ls /etc/apt... cairo-dock-team-ppa-raring.list noobslab-themes-raring.list – Sachin Prasad May 14 '13 at 6:03
BTW Still getting the same error. – Sachin Prasad May 14 '13 at 6:04

I had the same error but solved it by substituting the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mac-icons-noobslab
sudo apt-get install mac-ithemes-noobslab

for the Cursors, use:

wget -O
sudo unzip -d /usr/share/icons/ && rm
cd /usr/share/icons/mac-cursors
sudo chmod +x

In fact they look better than our old method. for further details:
