Mac4Lin is one of Lifehacker's Most Popular Linux Posts of 2009! It feels really good when you see your project figure on one of the Web's most popular tech websites! A big THANK YOU for all the support and appreciation :) 

The author writes:  "Mac4Lin Gives Linux Desktops the Complete Mac Look  It really, really does. If you don't mind the obvious break in your your free-as-in-speech fidelity, it's a pretty nice setup."   Full story: (Mac4Lin is listed just above Jolicloud and Chrome OS)

Just an update, Mac4Lin SVN has been updated with a new version of GTK Themes' and GTK Icons' directories. They are compatible with the latest version of GNOME and distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora etc.

To download everything goto this page: and on the botton click on "Download Tarball". If you however want to download specific components (like GTK_Theme etc.) then goto that directory and download the specific tarball. To install, you can follow any guide available online to install either the GTK theme or the GTK Icon theme.

I am yet to make a formal release, but those who want to experiment with the latest version and file bugs are welcome to do so :)

I just downloaded the update for my mac 10.5..  It looks fine - only, my icon in the dock is invisible.
Ive restarted the Mac but its still invisible.
What do I need to do to make it visible, please?
Thank you,
