Installation instructions :

This page offers several different methods to install the patched Gtk:

  • you can use deb packages with method [#zero Zero].

  • [#first First] method is the standard configure/make/make install stuff

  • [#second Second] method is the apt-build method (build debs)

You can as well build the applet from the source code

  • Intructions to compile the [#applet Mac Menu Applet]

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

For AMD64

[deb packages needed, feel free to contribute..]


Anchor(first)

Install using autotools

First method :

We're first going to install the mac menu applet:

-Download this file (note: you must be a member of ubuntuforums.org to be able to download it) http://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=47781&d=1193338299

-Open a terminal, go to the directory where you've downloaded the file using cd and execute the following command lines.

Code:

tar jxvf gnome-macmenu-applet-1.0.11.tar.bz2
cd gnome-macmenu-applet-1.0.11
sudo cp gnome-macmenu-applet /usr/lib/gnome-applets/
sudo cp GNOME_MacMenuApplet.server /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/

We're now gonna patch gtk+ with a gtk+ patch

-But we need depandancies installed first. I don't know what is needed exactly, here is the list of dev packages I have:

Code:

autotools-dev comerr-dev dpkg-dev libart-2.0-dev libatk1.0-dev libaudiofile-dev libavahi-client-dev libavahi-common-dev libavahi-glib-dev libbonobo2-dev libbonoboui2-dev libc6-dev libcairo-directfb2-dev libcairo2-dev libcupsys2-dev libdbus-1-dev libdirectfb-dev libesd0-dev libexpat1-dev libfontconfig1-dev libfreetype6-dev libgail-dev libgconf2-dev libgcrypt11-dev libgdk-pixbuf-dev libglade2-dev libglib1.2-dev libglib2.0-dev libgnome-keyring-dev libgnome2-dev libgnomecanvas2-dev libgnomeui-dev libgnomevfs2-dev libgnutls-dev libgpg-error-dev libgtk1.2-dev libgtk2.0-dev libhal-dev libhal-storage-dev libice-dev libidl-dev libjpeg62-dev libkrb5-dev liblzo2-dev libopencdk8-dev liborbit2-dev libpanel-applet2-dev libpango1.0-dev libpng12-dev libpopt-dev libselinux1-dev libsepol1-dev libsm-dev libstartup-notification0-dev libstdc++6-4.1-dev libsysfs-dev libtasn1-3-dev libtiff4-dev libusplash-dev libwnck-dev libx11-dev libxau-dev libxcomposite-dev libxcursor-dev libxdamage-dev libxdmcp-dev libxext-dev libxfixes-dev libxft-dev libxi-dev libxinerama-dev libxkbfile-dev libxml2-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libxres-dev libxt-dev linux-libc-dev x11proto-composite-dev x11proto-core-dev x11proto-damage-dev x11proto-fixes-dev x11proto-input-dev x11proto-kb-dev x11proto-randr-dev x11proto-render-dev x11proto-resource-dev x11proto-xext-dev x11proto-xinerama-dev xtrans-dev xutils-dev zlib1g-dev

you can install them before patching gtk+ by typing Code:

sudo apt-get install ...packages from the list above...

Then we're starting the patching itself.

-Download this file (note: you must be a member of ubuntuforums.org to be able to download it) http://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=47782&d=1193338357

-Open a terminal, go to the directory where you've downloaded the file using cd and execute the following command lines.

Code:

gzip -d gtk+-2.12.0-r2-gtkmenubar.diff.gz
sudo apt-get install build-essential
apt-get source gtk+2.0
tar zxvf gtk+2.0_2.12.0.orig.tar.gz
cd gtk+2.0-2.12.0
patch -p0 < ../gtk+-2.12.0-r2-gtkmenubar.diff
./configure --prefix=/usr
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)BRBR

You're now ready to use all the mac menu goodness ! Please report in the forum thread any problems you might have encountered.


Anchor(second)

Install using apt-build

Second method :

Install the mac menu applet deb package (note: you must be a member of ubuntuforums.org to be able to download it: http://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=47899&d=1193414016) , 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 downloaded 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 ~/Desktop/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)BRBR 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.

Uninstallation instruction (only for this second method) : If you have used the apt-build method to install the patched gtk do this to uninstall :

1. Go to menu system > administration > software sources. Pick the “third party software” tab, and uncheck apt-build repository.

2. Then in a terminal type in:

Code:

      sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install --reinstall -y libgtk2.0-0 

3. Logout / in gnome to apply changes.


Anchor(applet)

Compile it from the source code

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

Install 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
