Mac Theme

Postby nankura » Sun Mar 24, 2013 6:40 am

hey guys

I've been after for a long time a decent distro that offer's out of the box mac look alike theme's ( yes i understand this has been a topic of discussion for year's ), but ever since gnome 3 and unity, all the old mac theme scripts simply just dont work anymore

And alot of the Mac "look alike" distro's have alot of work to do. Pear OS, Elementary etc. have some pretty ground breaking bugs from my experience. but are great projects nonetheless

so im wondering if ultimate edition offers a mac theme

Why hello nancura :P You may like Cairo Dock mac theme or even other cairo-dock themes and you can make them "Ultimate" by editing its looks and default icons. ;)

If the repo isn't already enabled:
1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cairo-dock-team/ppa
2. sudo apt-get update
3. sudo apt-get install cairo-dock

Cairo dock will get installed to your system. Now it has two versions

Cairo dock with OpenGL: For computers with higher RAM and processor speed and graphics drive enabled
Cairo dock with no OpenGL: For older computers

To enable the first one at start up, just go to Applications - System Tools - GLX Dock. Then at the Ubuntu sign, right click and choose Cairo Dock to click an option there to enable at start up. However, you can't enable the lighter dock with no OpenGL from there - you have to go to System - Preferences - Startup Applications. From there click on Add to type in the following:
Cairo Dock StartUp in Name Field
cairo-dock -c in Command Field

Hope this helps..
