Default Make Your Linux Desktop Look Like a Mac

I have a question regarding step 2 (Applying a GTK Icon Theme). It says to go to System > Preferences > Themes > Cusomize > icons. When I look under Preferences there is no option for themes. The closet thing I see to themes in the Emerald Theme Manager.

dhabell,

The themes is in System>Prefernce>Appearance then Customize.
Unfortunately, for you (and me) using GNOME 2.20 (?), you can not customize much, except delete.

60 views, and this is the first answer?

The Mac4Lin guide ( http://www.howtoforge.com/mac4lin_ma...ook_like_a_mac ) has been updated today and now contains instructions for GNOME 2.20 as well.

Did you try the instructions for GNOME 2.18 or GNOME 2.20? Feisty uses 2.18.

Smile More adapted for newbie

Additional update is also expected, to make it easier to follow. I am referring to affinity mentioned in awn, could not find the package! The use of apt-get does not give any result, and research on the web, show that it is only available in tarball.
Font installation does not work for me, either.
But so far I have already a look of Mac on my laptop.
