Make your linux system look like a mac

Well frankly who doesn’t like a Macs!The only thing that goes against me buying one is money.When i see a dell with better configuration for the same money…i think twice(the ironic part is that i am stuck with a thinkpad provided by my college ).I put in linux onto my laptop.First Ubuntu and then Fedora.I am not going into my experiences with both as of now.Perhaps later on when i have a more complete knowledge before commenting.So now i want it to look like a Mac.

This is what you need to download.

It is well documented.Just download this pdf

This guide is for Ubuntu users.If you are using any other distro then you shouldn’t have any problems either.Even if they do crop up just leave a comment or google it. 🙂


Exporting your own firefox profile from windows to linux

When i first installed Ubuntu I wanted my entire mozilla firefox profile including all saved passwords,bookmarks,addons,settings to linux without manually having to do it again.SO here is a simple way in which u can transfer the entire firefox profile from windows to Linux.

The profile folder in windows is located under

inside this there is a .default folder like 5jgv87h1.default

all you have to do is copy all contents of this file and copy paste in to this directory in linux
press ctrl and h to show all hidden files
/home/Account Name/.mozilla

this is the file where the firefox profile is located.
just copy the contents into a similar 5jgv87h1.default folder(The 8 character folder name is randomly generated by firefox)
Replace all the files when asked and your firefox has all the settings,addons,bookmarks,saved passwords etc. with the same theme in linux..
