A tweet passed by me today and I discovered Macbuntu, and as a Mac Fan boy I thought .... my New Backtrack 5 install NEEDS this.

Well maybe yours does to, this post will tell you how:

Download up a Backtrack - Gnome install from

Install your Backtrack install just as normal, then use the following commands

Open a terminal and type the following commands:
$ wget -O /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04.tar.gz
$ tar xzvf /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04.tar.gz -C /tmp
$ cd /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04/

At this point you will need to edit the so that it will not bomb on the whoami check. You can comment out this check or just change the user name from ‘root’ to something else. *

Note that this is the quick way, if you make other user IDs on your Backtrack install then you can skip editing the

Then simply run

$ ./

After this point you should boot up into your new ‘Mactrack’ install ^^
