    Hi, first post here.

    First of all, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for such a great theme :D:D
    Altough I have heavily modified it to fit my taste I would never have my
    actual look and feel which I LOVE without your kind work.

    I'm running Linux Mint 7 (Gloria) based on Ubuntu 9.04

    Now straight to the business:

    My problem is I can't by any way change background colour of side panel in
    Nautilus 2.26 to fit the Mac look and feel. I tried changing it from the
    gconf-editor without succeed.

    Any idea? This is the last thing I need to set to have my perfect desktop
    from here to eternity =D

    Thank you very very much again.

    Glad you like Mac4Lin :)

    The background color of the sidepanel is a global setting. Making any changes
    in that will change the overall color. Maybe the newest version of GTK, GNOME
    may support this. You can try tweaking the gtkrc file in GTK theme/gtk-2.0/
    directory to test it out.

    Hi infra!

    Sorry for being so 'hard' (lol) but what do you want to say with "You can
    try tweaking the gtkrc file in GTK theme/gtk-2.0/ directory to test it
    out."? Where is such directory located? I browsed my home folder and
    didn't find it :P Many thanks!

    Oh, that file is in your home directory under .themes/<Mac4Lin GTK Aqua/
    Graphite>/gtk-2.0 directory. You will need to enable Show hidden files in
    Nautilus to display the .themes directory.
