Hello. Try to install the Gnome-Do package.
Once installed, set the preferences - appeareance to Docky.
And you gotta have Compiz running.

Hello thanks for that.

So that would be a plug-in? and where can i find this download?

JonasL (jonas.lieb) said : #3

It is included in the default package gnome-do, and
it is not a plug in.
You also could use a screen-let like "mac-bar"
(http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Mac-bar?content=67119)
or "yab".

Ok thanks alot.

So the normal Ubuntu linux does not have this feature?

what about gobuntu or kubuntu?

Jensen Somers (jsomers) said : #5

None of the Ubuntu versions or flavors have something similar by default. There are multiple applications which can create a similar behavior however. The ones that seem to be used the most are the Avant-Window-Manager and Gnome-Do.

For a complete tutorial on how to make Ubuntu look like Mac OSX I would refer you to http://www.taimila.com/?q=node/11.

To install an application such as gnome-do try going up to the top taskbar and click on

System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager

it asks for your normal user password, not your SuperUser/Root one. Use either search tool to find gnome-do and right-click on it to install. Then just click on the "Apply" button

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)
