Installation instructions


For i386



NOTE: At no time during this should there be Error messages. If there are try not to restart your system until any errors are resolved. Look for further help posting your Error message here:


Step 1:

Download the GutsyOSX file above. Extract it to your desktop so you have a GutsyOSX folder on your desktop containing 3 folders.

Step 2:

Install all the dependencies which is where most of you are having trouble. Go to Terminal and Copy & Paste the following:


sudo aptitude install liborbit2-dev libgnomeui-dev libglade2-dev libbonoboui2-dev libglib2.0-dev libpango1.0-dev libatk1.0-dev libcairo2-dev libx11-dev libxext-dev libxinerama-dev libxi-dev libxrandr-dev libxcursor-dev libxfixes-dev libxcomposite-dev libxdamage-dev libcairo-directfb2 libcairo-directfb2-dev libcairo2-dev

Step 3:

Install all the deb packages. In terminal Copy & Paste the following 3 commands:


sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/GutsyOSX/applet/macmenu-applet_0.1-2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/GutsyOSX/GTK/*.deb
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/GutsyOSX/gnome-panel-no-arrows/*.deb

Step 4:

Restart your system then right click on the taskbar where you want the mac menu, then choose Add to Panel and select the Mac Menu.

Lastly a big thanks to Hal9000/2 and everyone else involved for your fine work.

latest Update: 17.11.2007 – By Hal9000/2, post #1176 supports gnome 2.20.1
