Last week, I watched an appealing desktop environment for Gnome to resemble the Mac OS desktop. I was very curious about it and I did a non-deep search and found this project Gnome theme named Mac-OSX. I did install it and it presented me a better desktop than my previous one. However, the dock panel present in real Mac OSX was not there. I googled for "mac like dock in linux" and found some interesting links:
  • This link explains a little bit about the AWN project and describes how to customize this window manager
  • AWN has a wiki site
  • This link explains how to start the awn window manager
I will restart my gnome session.

  • As root, run the following command: "yum install awn-extras-applets"
