Transform Ubuntu into Mac With Macbuntu Transformation Pack

Ubuntu 10.10 has a great UI, features and its free, the reason why its the most popular Linux distro. So if you love Mac’s UI and still don’t wish to switch its good time to switch the ui using Macbuntu.
Macbuntu – Mac OS X Transformation Pack is Similar to Mac4Lin but dedicated to Ubuntu Linux. It can also be used in other OS based on Debian/GTK. Package includes all necessary system components to mimic Mac OS X appearance on Ubuntu Linux.

Macbuntu will install all the necessary apps, icons, and other resources to make your desktop look just like OS X. So no matter if you are on Lucid Lynx 10.04 or Meerkat 10.10, run the following command and get the mac look on Ubuntu.

Commands for Lucid Lynx: -wgethttps://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/macbuntu/macbuntu-10.04/v2.2/Macbuntu-10.04.tar.gzO /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04.tar.gz
tar xzvf /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04.tar.gz -C /tmp
cd /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04/
for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat:
wgethttps://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/macbuntu/macbuntu-10.10/v2.3/Macbuntu-10.10.tar.gz -O /tmp/Macbuntu-10.10.tar.gz
tar xzvf /tmp/Macbuntu-10.10.tar.gz -C /tmp
cd /tmp/Macbuntu-10.10/
The theme is in alpha stages but ddoes the job pretty nicely. The customizations can be made during setup.

Switching back to Ubuntu Gnome:
Retyping the above commands, replacing ./install.sh with ./uninstall.sh.
