OK, inidcator applet 3 still sticks out like a sore thumb when changing the themes of the AWN Panel - time for Cairo-Dock once more methinks! ;)

Just to add, total install time was approximately 40-45 minutes. The restart proved problematically - all indications it was going to restart but it ended with no signal on the monitor and the disc did not autoeject - had to manually remove the disc the press the reset button to do a restart. After the update had finished on reboot, I selected 'restart now' and had to give it a gentle push from the indicator applet to do a full restart.

One other comment about the AWN themes in the panel Preferences - the colour only changes the border of the panel not the Z - guess this will need to be done by selecting the Theme Changer 'global' settings in the menu:

Well I can't show you - Firefox baulks at uploading attachments - I will have to reinstall trusty old Opera 12.16 - I suspect Web will do the same as it would not upload in Live mode - had to install Opera in live mode to upload screenshot issues in RC! :(

And I am not going to even bother with Midori for uploading screenshots as it never worked from previous experience. If you want to install Opera for Zorin 10 32-bit, be sure to choose the i386 package as the x86_64 installer does not work (x86_64 should cover both 32-bit and 64-bit).

OK from Opera, this is the upload I wanted to put in my last post:

As you can see, to change the theme to get the Orange/Red 'Z' Logo you have to use the main Theme Changer in Menu | System Tools | Zorin Theme Changer - changing the Panel theme will not change the 'Z'. ;)

I don't know if I will have time today but I may do a string of short desktop screencasts and string them together, a sort of Post Install 'Tweaking' vid if you will! :D

Oh, and I have lost the menu from 'Plank' clicked on 'remove' thinking it would remove 'Plank' from AWN instead of finding quit in error (I had caught plank in menu whilst getting to Screenshot below it! :oops: )

OK, Make or break time! I have installed IceCat 38.0 to see if I can upload pics with this!:

Nope!

and IceCat is complaining that I should complain that there is non-free Java present! Which would explain why I can't add smileys either I guess! :-O

OK so I have had to reboot (and now the Z plymouth no longer works after installing Cairo-Dock).

Well this is what I tried to post (Opera 12.16 will not run in Cairo-Dock DE in Zorin 10 but does work in Zorin DE! :o :shock: :? :x :roll: :twisted: :cry: :mrgreen: :arrow:

Well now getting really frustrated, Opera would not launch in Cairo Dock but would in Zorin DE ... until I decided to uninstall AWN and install an older version to get the classic look - now Opera 12.16 crashes before it even opens and NONE of the default browsers or other sources I have tired will allow uploading images to the forum.

Sorry guys I am sticking with 9 I think and MakuluLinux :D :o :shock: :( :roll: :cry:

Just bought the Zorin OS 10 Ultimate 64-bit yesterday,..

I don't know if it happen to just me or you guys too,.. Well this only happen when I change the Zorin Look Changer into Mac OS X. When I'm in Mac OS X, it seems that whenever I click on restart or shutdown at the drop down menu [the power icon], it just logged me out,.. we can only restart or shutdown after clicking on the top right power button at the welcome screen... Is that happen to you guys too?

One more thing, I would personally prefer the traditional Mac OS X colour which is [red button - Close prog : Yellow - Maximize : Green - Minimize] like we have on Zorin OS 9 Ultimate instead of All blue button like we have on ZOS10 now... It would be easier for the new comer to recognize the button and yeah, it looks prettier in that way =)

Hi Swarfendor437,

Sure, go ahead =)

but I'm sorry guys, I've decided to going back to ZOS9. My reason would be:

1) The problem as stated on my previous post
2) In Mac OS X look, ZOS10 uses Plank Dock [which is much faster upon startup but lacks on customization] instead of Docky [which is slightly slower upon startup but offers a fair customization and animation] like we have on ZOS9
3) My Wifi does not works great on ZOS10 since I have to reboot my router each time I startup Zorin to get access to the Internet [Maybe it only happens to me :( ]
4) My touchpad also doesn't working on ZOS10 so I have to uses USB mouse instead [Again, maybe this problem only occurs to me,.. Idk... Maybe it happen because I'm using USB mouse when Installing ZOS10...]

However, don't get me wrong guys, ZOS10 works great on Windows 7 look and it looks much prettier than ZOS9.
So it's a matter of personal preferences,.. Like me, I would interested to feels the Mac OS X look instead of Windows 7 ,.. it gives me a different feels than what we have on ordinary Windows 7,..

So yeah, ZOS10 was definitely a great great OS available out there with such a beautiful and user friendly interface,.. You guys should try it once =)

OK, if you want MacOSX style then install Cairo-Dock - it does work - don't let my 'tweak and break' as far as Opera is concerned put you off! You can install Cairo-Dock - see my video here:

:D

Will still look at that window decorations - I need to see what I can do in 10 with Gtk Ch etc. ;) :D

OK, this is the solution for your Mac Buttons on the wndows:

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ ... ent=165450

But first install gnome-tweak-tool by using a terminal (Ctrl+ Alt+ T) and enter:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool


This will install Tweak Tool under Menu | System Tools | Preferences

Now if you haven't got Gdebi Package installer already installed:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gdebi


Next after you have downloaded the .7z file of Zukimac, extract with Archive manager and then right-click the file:

zukimac-gtk-theme-for-gtk_3.14.deb

and select Open with ... Gdebi

Now open Tweak Tool and use the drop-down box to change the theme - zukimac comes after Zorin! :D

Yay, Opera is now working after reinstallation so I can upload screenshots of the changes! :D
