    Ultimate Mac OS X Pack!

    After scouring the internet, both these forums, gnome-look, and google, i have compiled the most complete MAC theme that I find to date. This is what it includes:

    * Instructions for application bar
    * usplash (Black and White) ** These are custom-made, took me foreverto do!
    * cursors
    * Firefox Theme
    * gdm Login theme
    * Login Splash
    * Menubar (3 different colours in 2 resolutions: 1024 and 1280)
    * Themes (Control, icons, and window)
    * Wallpaper
    * intructions for close/minimize/maximize buttons, mac logo, and more!

    What I need to make perfect:

    * Sounds
    * Actual macintosh computer.


    Hope everybody enjoys and let me know what you all think! Much thanks to Danny_Boy for hosting this file. Without him you would have to put up with Rapidshare for a long time. Thank you Danny Boy!
    Screenshot of final product included.

    Download

    P.S. Personally, I need to keep the taskbar at the bottom (you can see I hid it for the screenshot on the right side), but you are free to do what you want!

    EDIT:
    *Screenshots added
    *iFox Firefox theme added
    *Bootsplash instructions rewritten
    *Rapidshare link added.
    *Rapidshare link removed, Danny Boy now hosting the file.

    Works fine for me too, wonderful idea by the way. With a few minor tweakers, OSX could look really nice.

    screenshots added, and here are the usplash options i have provided. The text is completly invisible and all you get is the apple icon and a progress bar underneath in the same colour. Personally I like the white much better, but it's your choice!

    Nice one dude !

    Personally, for the firefox theme, I prefer the "ifox" smooth theme https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1830/

    By the way, how do you get the upsplash to work ?

    Haha no, I didn't mean that, the version you uploaded looked pretty accurate!

    I meant that OSX itself could look very nice with a few tweaks, I'm not a great fan of some of the default fonts and the striped white bars... Also, it's a bit too colourful at times for my taste.

    But let's not turn this into a OSX-GUI discussion.

    sorry I forgot a few commands, here is the instructions for it. ifox theme and these instructions have been added to the pack! Hope the instructions help!

    ---------------------------

    Copy whichever bootsplash you want (White or black) to your home folder. Open up the terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and copy and paste the commands one by one, hitting enter to execute the command after each one.

    1. sudo apt-get install libbogl-dev gcc
    2. pngtobogl usplash-artwork.png > usplash-artwork.c
    3. gcc -Os -g -I/usr/include/bogl -fPIC -c usplash-artwork.c -o usplash-artwork.o
    4. gcc -shared -Wl,-soname,usplash-artwork.so usplash-artwork.o -o yourimage-splash.so
    3. sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/usplash/
    4. sudo cp yourimage-splash.so /usr/local/lib/usplash/yourimage-splash.so
    5. sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-artwork.so usplash-artwork.so /usr/local/lib/usplash/yourimage-splash.so 55
    6. sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so
    7. sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-$(uname -r
