I'm just wondering if i can make my menu bar look like macs menu bar.
Thanks for answering if you answer.

Yes it can be done. Firstly, you need to find the background of the mac menubar, you can do this by Google searching for a screenshot of Mac, and then cutting out a slice of menu bar. Then right-click the panel and choose properties->background. Selects Background Image, and browse to the image of the menu bar you made.

Alternatively, you could try and find a GTK/Metacity theme (I don't know which, but if you want a mac clook, you'd better get both) on wwww.gnome-look.org

Alright, here's the image. It will look best if you apply it to the top bar (that's where it is on a 'real' mac)

Just download the picture to your /home/[user]/Pictures folder, and use what I said above to set it as the background for the menu bar. The image is 21 pixels high, so make sure the panel is set to 21 pixels or it will look dodgy.
