    I'm trying to install mac4Lin on an openSUSE 11.3 system. Both KDE and gnome
    are installed, GDM is used as desktop manager. (I have to admit that I'm used
    to KDE, not to gnome...)

    After adding some links:
    ln -s /etc/gdm/custom.conf /etc/gdm/gdm.conf
    mkdir /usr/share/gdm/themes

    ..the installation went through so far.

    1st issue:
    Installing Mac4Lin Emerald Window Borders...
    ./ Zeile 58: '
    Done! idea if this missing ']' has any impact.

    2nd issue:
    Please set the Mac4Lin GDM Theme manually by going to System > Admin > Login
    Window > Local > Theme

    ...looks like this path is different in openSUSE. Can one point me to the
    configuration file?

    Thanks for your support...

    I'm really sorry I'm not vey familiar with openSUSE. Unfortunately GDM
    customization is no longer an option in the latest version of Fedora and
    Ubuntu. Maybe it's been removed in SUSE too. I haven't updated the document
    since quite sometime now.

    Too bad, Mac4Lin looked like a nice GUI alternative!

    You can still install the GUI. The only thing you may not be able to install
    is the GDM login screen (which even Fedora and Ubuntu can't now). So, there is
    nothing stopping you from installing Mac4Lin GTK and Icon themes and get the
    Mac OS X GUI :)
