you can do before patching gtk+
Code: {{{
sudo apt-get install ...packages from the list above...
}}}

[[Anchor(second)]]
'''''Second method :'''''

Install the mac menu applet deb package (link at the bottom of the page) [#one 1], then in a terminal, type in this to install apt-build

Code: {{{
sudo apt-get install apt-build
}}}
Choose to add apt-build repository to your sources.list when asked.

After, I told apt-build to get libgtk2.0-0 source package (apt-build takes care of the build deps for you, ie: -dev packages)
You need to have the ubuntu sources repositories enabled (menu System > Administration > Software sources, then pick Ubuntu software tab and check Source Code box).
Code: {{{
sudo apt-build source libgtk2.0-0
}}}
Next step was to copy the dowloaded patch [#two 2] from where is was (on the desktop in _this_ case, replace "~/Desktop/" with the path where you downloaded the gzipped patch) to the libgtk2.0-0 source package directory
If you also want to remove the underlines use the patch 098_no_label_underline.patch [#three 3]

First, uncompress 099_mac_menubar.patch.gz :
Code: {{{
gzip -d ~/Destop/099_mac_menubar.patch.gz
}}}
then copy the patches to the patches directory (assuming they are on your Desktop, if it's not the case replace ~/Desktop/ with the path were the patches are located)
Code: {{{
sudo cp ~/Desktop/099_mac_menubar.patch /var/cache/apt-build/build/gtk+2.0-2.12.0/debian/patches/
sudo cp ~/Desktop/098_no_label_underline.patch /var/cache/apt-build/build/gtk+2.0-2.12.0/debian/patches/
}}}
And, add the name of the patches you have added (i.e."099_mac_menubar.patch", "098_no_label_underline.patch")to the debian/patches/series list

Code: {{{
sudo gedit /var/cache/apt-build/build/gtk+2.0-2.12.0/debian/patches/series
}}}


Now we use use apt-build to build the packages
Code: {{{
sudo apt-build install libgtk2.0-0
}}}
'''NOTE''' Be Patient, this compiles from source, which will take considerably longer than installing from the Binary Package (Binary ~1 Minute | Source ~30 Minutes)[[BR]][[BR]]
After that you'll have an update for libgtk in your update manager (it won't install automatically because local apt-build repository isn't signed), let update manager install them and finally,add the applet to the top panel.
Now you need to log out/in gnome to see the changes.

'''''For those who want/need to compile themselves the mac menu applet (ie: 64bits)'''''

Intall this before

Code: {{{
sudo apt-get install build-essential libwnck-dev libpanelappletmm-2.6-dev
}}}
Then unpack the applet source and go in its folder

Code: {{{
tar -xvzf macmenu-applet-0.1.tar.gz
cd macmenu-applet-0.1/
}}}
Then compile and install

Code: {{{
make
sudo make install
}}}
'''NOTE''' Be Patient, this compiles from source, which will take considerably longer than installing from the Binary Package (Binary ~1 Minute | Source ~30 Minutes)[[BR]]
