Macbuntu is an open-source program, designed to make Ubuntu’s appearance look like Mac OS X. I have written about Macbuntu for previous Ubuntu edition, but Macbuntu package for Ubuntu 11.04 Unity has not come out yet. So here’s how to install Macbuntu package for Ubuntu 10.10 on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty to make Unity look like Mac OS X.

1.) First, download Macbuntu for Ubuntu 10.10 from this page:

2.) Open up a terminal window and uncompress the package:

cd ~/Downloads
tar zxvf Macbuntu-10.10.tar.gz
cd Macbuntu-10.10

3.) Run “” file will detect Ubuntu version, so first edit it:


find out this section:

echo “”
echo “Checking Ubuntu version…”
s=`cat /etc/issue | grep -i “$UBUNTU”`
if [ ! -n "$s" ]; then
echo “Failed. System not supported, script will end here”
echo “To ignore their compatibility with current OS try ./ force”
echo “Exiting…”
exit 1;
echo “Passed”

change it into:

echo “Passed”

save it and finally run:


4.) Answer questions and start installation and finally restart.
