Apple Icon gone !

  • Anonymous - 2007-12-23

    Hi all,

    I installed mac4lin on ubuntu feisty and everything was all fine. After i did an update to ubuntu gutsy, the black apple icon beside "Applications" in the main menu is changed to some other icon.

    Anyone knows how to put the apple icon back ?

    Thank you in advance.

      The easy way:

      download this zip file and extract it to your home directory:

      Open a terminal window (ALT+F2, type "gnome-terminal", press ENTER).
      Type the following line:


      It will automatically move the nice apple icon to the appropriate spots.

      Yes, to avoid any legal problems Mac4Lin does not bundle any Apple icons. The Apple icon has now been replaced with a Black Ubuntu Icon.

      To set the icon to your own, head to ~/.icons/<Mac4Lin Icon theme folder>/scalable/places. Now replace all the Black Ubuntu Icons (png files) with the ones you like.

      Hi infra_red_dude,

      You mean after the ubuntu update to gutsy, the mac4lin theme also update itself as the problem is not happening in feisty.

      FYI - It's not changed to a black ubuntu icon but something like "a compass in front of a sheet of document".

      Anyway, I tried to use a png icon and resize it to 128x128. After replacing it to ~/.icons/<Mac4Lin Icon theme folder>/scalable/places, it worked.

      Thanks pal for your work !

      The compass in front of document icon appears only if you use the older Mac4Lin ver.0.3 Icon theme in GNOME 2.20 (i.e upgrading to Gutsy). You need to use Mac4Lin ver.0.3a of Mac4Lin ver.0.4 in Gutsy.

      Just search on the net or use the one from Mac4Lin version 0.3 and prior.
