For some reason the screenshot you posted is not of Mac4Lin v1.0. I'm guessing you used some other GTK and/or icon theme or it is from a previous version of Mac4Lin. You can get the correct screenshots from the official Mac4Lin sourceforge.net page.

You don't have to do anything the Mac4Lin package (script) will do it for you.

Not able to get bottom panel after running config. Do we have to do anything special?
