    Interference with package manager controls after Mac4lin install.
    Have lost all my wireless and wired settings using wicd on Karmic.
    My wireless card is showing its disabled.
    Have spent two weeks getting my wireless up and running before the Karmic
    install.
    Just wanted to say i liked your Mac4lin project and screen themes very much
    but feel i'm now out of my depth as i'm a newbie to Ubuntu.
    Can you please let me Know what is the simple uninstall Mac4Lin line in
    Terminal ?
    Many Thanks

    I'm not certain that Mac4Lin is the culprit, although I have noticed that my
    wireless card is disabled in karmic. There's an uninstall script in the
    Mac4Lin archive, Mac4Lin_Uninstall_v1.0.sh and you can simply open the
    directory in a terminal and run ./Mac4Lin_Uninstall_v1.0.sh. That should
    uninstall Mac4Lin for you.

    You didn't say which version of Ubuntu you're running. If you can let us know
    that I can try to chase down the interaction that's causing the issue and see
    if I can get a bug reported against the appropriate package.

    Never mind the version request. I just realized that you stated that in your
    thread title. My bad.

    Thanks for all the info much appreciated.
    All all started going wrong on p12 of the mac4lin instructions,i have to admit
    now it started going wrong when i tinkered with the login screen immediately
    after i pressed authenticate.I switched the login back and forth from two
    selections of login as an experiment looking for something mac like ie new
    offerings of a new screen theme.

    Its a shame that you do not have Mac4Lin offered as a package install for
    Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 making it easily accessible and stable to run.
    Perhaps even after that tweekable too.

    Tinkering with the GDM Login screen shouldn't have affected your networking.
    There is a known issue with wireless cards in karmic
    (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-
    manager/+bug/459871
    to link to one of the several bugs) so your issue may
    be a karmic networking issue rather than a Mac4Lin issue.

    Mac4Lin doesn't alter any system files and absolutely doesn't touch any
    configuration files. So my inference is that the culprit is something else.

    Did the install script not work?
