Install Macbuntu On Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat”

The goal of this project is to bring the look and feel of Mac OSX into Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat”. Macbuntu includes a script that makes the installation process quick and easy. This is not a simple GTK+ theme but it completely changes the way Ubuntu looks and works.

To install Macbuntu download the package from SourceForge.net. When downloaded open and extract the file content to your Desktop. Now open the Macbuntu-10.10 folder and double click on the install.sh file and click on Run in Terminal. Answer the questions and wait for the script to finish installing the needed files. When the installation is finished restart your computer and have fun with Macbuntu!!

To uninstall Macbuntu double click on the uninstall.sh file and the Macbuntu files will be removed and your Ubuntu settings will be reverted to default .

Macbuntu-10.10 looks great, though I prefer the firefox add-on of mac os x theme! Can you explain to me why the “file manager” on the desktop does not boot?

I’m not a huge fan of the way OSX looks, but this was so easy to install I had to give it a shot. I’m very impressed with this, to say the least. Whoever put this all together took a lot of time to do so, and did one heck of a job.

Thanks for posting the tutorial, it explained the installation process very well. I don’t know how long I’m going to keep this theme installed, but I’m not uninstalling it right away either 😛

I tried to install Macbuntu using the terminal commands. Everything works great until it asks for my sudo password, then the terminal wont let my input any characters, letters, numbers, etc.

I would really like to try this, but I can’t even initiate the installation. Please Help.

your an idiot… if your used to ubuntu then you would know that when a terminal asks for a password and you type, nothing compes up anyway but the terminal is still reading it… you just have to make sure your typing your psswrd right…
