My New MacOSX-like Desktop

For some odd reason, many Linux users have been configuring their Linux desktops to look exactly like Apple’s Leopard desktop.  After reading this tutorial, http://maketecheasier.com/turn-your-ubuntu-hardy-to-mac-osx-leopard/2008/07/23, I decided to give it a try on my Thinkpad T60.

The tutorial was fairly good and straightforward.  I had no problems making my desktop look exactly like an Apple desktop.  After I got everything to work, I decided to convert part of the Apple theme back to Ubuntu‘s theme.  I kept the nice dock and screenlets, even parts of the top menu replacing Apple’s logo with Ubuntu’s.

Since I am a fan of Firefly, I replaced Apple’s wallpaper with an image of Serenity.  Now I have a nice, clean, and simple desktop.

    Woohooo!! There’s a really nice Firefox theme called iFox Smooth, you should give it a try.

    btw, can you get the globalmenu to work with Firefox cuz I couldn’t.

  • You probably enabled more than one globalmenu since it disappears. I had to delete all of them and then add it.

    Also, make sure you change the background image as per the tutorial.

    Remember, the globalmenu will only appear when a window is open. It is okay but I want to see how I can edit it. Many menus from my other applications disappear for some odd reason.
