Thread: Mac4Lin - New releases, discussions, comments etc.

  1. #1

    Default Mac4Lin - New releases, discussions, comments etc.

    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.

    was moved to the archive section. Hence the new thread.

    The main Mac4Lin sourceforge.net has been updated with new themes. These themes fix the "Engine Error" in the newest version of GNOME. The pack includes an updated installation script which does not attempt to set the GDM theme autmatically. Also, a user contributed Mac4Lin uninstall script is now included in the pack.

    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: Phoenix: Howto: Use Subversion (and install Mac4Lin v1.0 RC2)

    Hope thats helpful

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

    Currently its still for GTK based DEs (GNOME, Xfce). Since I'm not a KDE user and haf very limited KDE theming knowledge I'd an open invitation to help me port Mac4Lin to KDE. But sadly till today nobody ever replied
