Description:

I don't have time or motivation to maintain this icon theme anymore (this theme has not changed since version 3.3, Mar 17 2007). The fact that it still "kinda" works nearly a decade later (2015) is a small miracle. If anyone wants to take over its ownership, please contact me.
====================

This is (was) a complete refresh of the original OSX icon theme by Toby. I fixed every missing icon I could find, fixed the "tiny icon" problem and made enhancements. It is somewhat of a hybrid theme: I tried to make choices that seemed logical trying to keep a balance between usability and strict adherence to OS X.

2015 update: fixed the download link, nothing else.

This was just a very old version of Clearlooks (from two years before!) with Compiz' default window decorations (before Compiz was compatible with Metacity themes).

metacity - Compiz Express and I got what I wanted. It looks as on your screens. Great.

It's sad to see a great theme lose its usefulness by becoming obsolete. Please check out and use my Mashup icon theme which is live and fresh with regular updates. Here is the link:

GOOD NEWS! I have an up-to-date version (Ubuntu 8.04) of this icon theme and I have contacted the creator to see if I can take it over. The bad news is that it's on my other computer in Utah and I wont be able to get it for about a month. But it will happen so be patient :)

Hey Im a bit of a nuby when it comes to changing icons. I cant seem to change the default folder icons from tango to those lovely osx ones you provided. Any suggestions?

by the way there isnt a file system section in the scalable icons anymore. I think this could be the problem, but i have no idea how to fix it

cd ~/.icons/OSX/scalable/places/ && mv "original folders/*" .


...should work

bilwalsh

unfortunately no

mv: missing destination file operand after `original folders/*'
Try `mv --help' for more information.
bilwalsh@bilwalsh-laptop:~/.icons/OSX/scalable/places$

even though I know the icons are there!!

cd ~/.icons/OSX/scalable/places/
ln -s gnome-fs-directory.png folder.png
ln -s gnome-fs-directory.png gtk-directory.png

then, reload your icons...

Is not compatible with Gnome 2.20.0 (Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon), if not good theme.

I would use it when it is compatible with Gnome 2.20.

Goodbye and good continuation!

bonjour jean-lux, as I said I don't have time and motivation to maintain this anymore. If someone wants to do it, I'll gladly hand over the ownership.

I think it's ok in Gutsy, but first you will have to use Synaptic to install the Tango theme. Did you try that?

Is ok here too. You'll have to install the Tango iconset. Thanks for this iconset kiddo.
