Do you want to have Ubuntu tool bar at bottom or having a dock like Mac OS ?

if you want ubuntu to look like mac then you need to delete the bottom Then remove the applications / system item at the top and add the menu bar item andmove it to the left. You will then need global menu so all maximized apps get their file, edit etc menus in the top bar (like a mac).

You can then install docky or avant-window-navigator to get the mac dock thing and customize that as you wish. You will then need to run:

sudo apt-get install emerald

and grab a mac emerald theme and apply it to make the window decorator look like a mac. You can theme docky / AWN as you wish to make it more accurate, if you run:

ccsm

You can enable animations and make the minimize animation be the magic lamp in all cases for the tru mac experience.

Can you help with this problem?
