Hello all. I don't know if this goes here or not but i'm a linux user and I downloaded some .dmg files I found that had Icons and wall papers in them. Well how do you open .dmg files? Do you have to have a Mac to open them?

dmg file are like zip files to a mac. Yes, they open right up and reveal what looks like a disk drive. "Inside" the disk drive lies the actual app. Once you see the app you just drag it to the applications folder, or wherever you want. That's how you install programs on a mac.

A ZIP file is only a compressed file.
As for Linux, I have no idea if it can open a DMG. If yes, you have to mount it, just like a drive. That's what OS X does with DMGs.
