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 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. 🙂
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
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..
