I heard something about Macubuntu and want to try.

Is there anyone using macubuntu and what do you think about it? :)

  • Are you more interested in cosmetic changes (theme, wallpaper, etc.) or functional changes (dock, expose, etc.)? Or both? – Matthew Oct 15 '10 at 21:56

You can download this all in one Package Macbuntu and read more about it on this Webupd8 Article

  • Glad to be of help :-) – rihatum Oct 13 '10 at 15:36

I found this amazing tutorial on 5 steps to transform your Ubuntu to Mac OMGUbuntu - 5 Tips To transform Ubuntu To MAC

Then , I found a nice splash screen/boot screen to make Ubuntu feels more like Mac . Its a splash screen theme from plymouth . Enjoy =) UbuntuRoot - Plymouth Mac OS X Splash Screen


You could try Mac4Lin, it's a good transformation tool. http://sourceforge.net/projects/mac4lin/ Instructions http://www.howtoforge.com/mac4lin_make_linux_look_like_a_mac


A couple of ideas:

Docky will give you a (vaguely) OSX-like Dock. You can install it via Software Centre (in 10.10 at least). You can then remove your bottom panel and launch Docky.

You can get the menus-in-top-bar thing of OSX by right-clicking in the top panel, clicking "add to panel", then adding "Indicator Applet Appmenu". You can then delete the Main Menu from the left-hand side of the top panel, and move the Application Menus to the left-hand side.

    It's worth mentioning that Indicator Applet Appmenu is quite unstable as of now. (It'll freeze your machine if you use it whilst a new application is opening) I would suggest you look into Gnome GlobalMenu instead. – Dante Ashton Oct 16 '10 at 1:06
