The Global Menu bar is achieved by installing a patched version of GTK and an xfce4- or gnome- panel plugin. (More info here and here.) I was able to find binary packages for these, which I can upload here if people are interested.

Hi, I'm a Mac user, I'm tryng wnop with machintoshisch themes and so on, but I can't find GTK patches for global-menu (binaries).
I'm very interested in those binary packages ... this theme is pure OSX ... (I mean estetically) Very Happy

Subject description: Full Install
 

Very Happy Hello Very Happy

@Prit1,
Love the Macpup, but have been running it live cd. Tonight I decided to Full H.D. install it..
Used the live cd to install..When I rebooted it I got an error:

-sh:error while loading shared library:libreadline.so.5 cannot open shared object file error 20

I wiped the partition and installed from the live cd again..same error..
Works fine w/pupsave and/or live cd...(I dont want frugal)
......Would love to make Macpup a permanent member of the kennel...Any thoughts??

.....Puppyluvr....

@puppyluvr: Am glad you liked Macpup. When do you get this error? Does it even go into X? Or is this error occurring before that? I have never done full install of any puppy version. I prefer frugal and it has worked perfectly for me. If you have enough memory (atleast 256MB), why dont you try frugal? Otherwise we may need to find this shared library and add this to Macpup.

@puppyluvr: Great job. Hope Macpup works well. The background looks great with this theme. Maybe you should try Whodo's suggestions also.

@puppyluvr: Thanks for all the good feedback and your patience. Can you please post the contents of your menu.lst if possible? I am not an expert in grub .. but just to have a look if there is something obvious missing.

There's a hidden surprise in that package, too! A little Gtk theme called gekos-leopard! It gives a Macish look to the INSIDE parts of the Rox windows, too!

Subject description: Changing location of wbar
 

prit1,


How do we move the location of the wbar? Say from the bottom to the top or center/middle etc.

Posted another thread but should have stayed here (forum illiterate, pardon me!)

Have you used the wbarconfig gui that is available. that would be sweet!

Thanks for all the effort you put into macpup

@linuxblues: Am glad you like Macpup. The end of this page (thread) has some options listed.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=19742&start=30

You can also get the options available by typing
Code:
wbar -help

You can play around with the options and find out what best suits you.

The answer to your question is

-pos top would get the wbar to the top

I have not tried using the gui configuration. But even otherwise the config is very simple as the options are few.
