BiSOFT-GTK3, MacOS-like
Gnome Shell Themes
Description:

Fixed Gtk-2 & Gtk-3 panel/slider/colors issues ...
------
Final Release for Mint-14 Cinnamon + !!!
updated GTK-2 & GTK-3 to maclike ...
Suitable with my new Icon-pack for all editions from here :

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=148521

----
Now Beta-3 My MacOS Like theme ready for Nadia - LinuxMint-14 and Ubuntu 12.10 ...
many fixes - equal color table for GTK-2 and GTK-3, new progresive bars, many color fixes /scrollbars/sliders, all selected colors more grey close, to the Apple ...
-------------------------------
If you are still running Mint-12 (Lisa, like me) or Ubuntu 11.10 pls,delete gtk-3.0 inside the theme and then change the integrated 'gtk-3.0_Lisa-12' to the proper 'gtk-3.0' in order to use the full capacity of my theme in colours :) ...
-------------------------------
BiSOFT-G3, MacOS-like ready for Maya (LinuxMint-13), also supports Mint-12 in add-ins and earlier ubuntu ver. inside + xfce theme and new updated Gnome shell theme + cinnamon 1.4 is white inside, as in the pictures :
1.metacity-1 for the frames - MacOS-like;win7 and winXp like inside
2.gtk-2.0;
3.gtk-3.4;
4.gnome-shell 3.4 white edition;
5.cinnamon 1.4 (for Mint-13 Maya);
6.unity 12.04 LTS ...
7.bisoft-cursors
8.xfce support
---------------------

Updated Cinnamon to latest state
bugs on colors and sizes : fixed for Gnome 3.4.1 for gtk 2. and gtk 3.
Inside metacity-1 small/normal(for me) and big buttons - for everyone to choose..

Very stable on Ubuntu 12.04 and on Maya (RC by now ...)

Good Luck

---------------------------

I have updated the theme to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS unity and gnome3.4, although it's in beta yet :) they are working perfectly ...

---------------------------
The theme still supports Cinnamon 1.4 for Mint-12 Lisa and gnome-shell : gtk.3.x - unico engines used for best performance.
The pack is BiSOFT-G3 and consists of :

1.metacity-1 for the frames - MacOS-like;
2.gtk-2.x;
3.gtk-3.x;
4.gnome-shell 3.4 blsck edition;
5.cinnamon 1.4 (for Mint-13 Maya);
6.unity 12.04LTS ...
7.bisoft-cursors
8.xfce
+ added small, big and normal .svg images packs for smaller / bigger monitors ... (take a look inside the ./cinnamon and ./metacity-1 dirs)

Great :) based on my previous BiSOFT-G3 in a white brand line and MacOSX frames ...

-----------------------
I completed and attached my Gnome-Shell -> transparent desktop and pop-up menu, zoom on the selections with changing colours, 'apple' changing b/w black and white upon the desktop mode, support for Mint : transparent bottom task-bar and much more stuff :)...
I included the KDE bisoft-cursor theme too.
--------
That's my MacOS-X related metacity-1 theme with gtk-2.0and gtk-3.0.
As Compiz is not working good on all Gnome-3.x (Gnome-shell,Unity-2D,etc.), I have decided to modify the left-handed MacOS theme, inspired by the famous 'Cupertino' theme and with the help of Toni Milovan's theme.
The frame buttons are made larger, egg-like more colourful and a special care is taken for the 'pressed state' of the buttons; all indexes on the pre-light are 'white' : images are (.svg) format for best performance ... that's the difference from the original ones :)
The buttons both in gtk-2.0 and gtk-3.2 are windows-like with a light-blue shade downwards. In this theme I added a gnome-shell, with an 'apple' icon on top ...
This theme is linked inside with my 'bisoft-cursor' pack and my IconPack for Gnome-3.x ... look here :

I like this theme, but the checkboxes in apps become invisible when the GTK+ theme is activated in Linux Mint 13.

Yes you're right : this is a fault of GTK-3 + for Maya; it is because I am already on Mint-14 - where the theme works OK; I will check the code and will fix it for both latest Mints.
Thank U for the feedback !!!

Thank you for your quick reply. I'm a newbie to all this. I installed LM 13 Maya about 2 months ago because it has LTS, but I've noticed that I get lots of css parsing errors with any theme built for GTK 3.6. Not just yours, but any of them I've tried so far. For the most part, they seem to work o.k. in Maya if you don't look at the system log ... lol. Maybe it would be a good idea to keep a GTK 3.4 version available when updating themes to 3.6. Keep up the good work.

I am an old mac user who switched to windows 7 and now to linux.
I like this bisoft however I am not able to get the check boxes to appear anywhere. very new to linux (Mint17 Mate) so dont know how to make this happen without using another "control" option as all other theme appearance custom choices have that . even the preview of the BiSoft is missing those check boxes.
anything i can do or that i may have missed in my searches?
thanks

i like the frame buttons. i would like to use them
with every other theme.

Report

OK you can easily get them from /metacity-1 dir of the theme, where-ever you put the theme

I use as root the system dir :

/usr/share/themes/BiSOFT-MacOS/metacity-1/*.*

actually the frame buttons are not mine;I use an old theme, slightly modify them to fit into my greyish frame with a little hole arround and so on.

As every linux user you are free to use my scripts where necessary ...
Good luck !!!

You are the best!I was looking everywhere for this theme!But i'd like to adjust top panel's transparency.Which section do i have to tamper in "Panel"or "Gnome shell"css documents,if i'm correct?

OK if you can open panel.css in /gnome shell dir :
....
#panel {
color: #fff;
background-gradient-direction: vertical;
background-gradient-start: rgba(8,8,8,0.85);
background-gradient-end: rgba(8,8,8,0.35);
box-shadow: inset 0 -2px 2px 0 rgba(8,8,8,0.15);
border: 1px solid rgba(255,255,255,0.25);
border-left: 0px;
border-right: 0px;
border-top: 0px;
border-bottom: 1px;
font-size: 10pt;
font-weight: bold;
height: 26px;
}

in this section the last parameter in the background-gradient-start (end) 0.85 -> 0.35 determines the transperancy. Main color #fff - white here
The same you may do in the cinnamon.css in the same section.
I'll be glad if could help ?

I like more and more your theme. I think that it would be good that you also integrate your icons theme as your cursors theme to make a complete pack. But it's only my personal opinion.

Actually I have given a link to my icon-pack at the end of the description :

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/BiSOFT-IconPack-G3?content=148649

it's a little windows-like but I have almost remade every icon inside :)

Actually not for me ... I work on a 26" panel 1,5m in front of me, and they are just fine ! OK, take a look inside the theme in ./BiSOFT-G3/metacity-1/Big are the biggest images but in ./BiSOFT-G3/metacity-1/normal are the normal ones ... actually I don't remember weather I left the big ones at the end, beg your pardon ?! Just copy all the images from any of these dirs to the ../metacity-1 dir and restart the theme ... or you may do them even smaller (now the normal ones are 24px), make them 20px or even 16px, with inkscape - all images are unlocked and free to used ...
Good luck :)

OK Ubuntu 12.04 is still in beta2 by the moment ... and that beta does not support anything from the past :)
If you carefully read the description of my packs - I've paid attention mainly on Cinnamon support; actually I use LinuxMint 12 lisa with Cinnamon 1.4 and the theme is FULLY COMPATIBLE with this distro I guarrantee ...

Yes, from this very moment - yes ... specially for U :)
Works perfectly .. though Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is still in beta2 - but it's very closed to the deadline ...
How to install, long ago I've used to add a readme.txt in my packs, but now I thought everyone knows HowTo - OK ...
You must extract the data from the BiSOFT-G3.tar.gz file anywhere in your system OR specially to
./home/'yourname'/.themes - don't forget the 'dot' before .themes - it's a 'hidden' dir, you may also extract or move later the BiSOFT-G3 directory to -> /usr/share/themes/ directory for optimal use from the system - but this you should do on admin's rights with 'gksudo nautilus' command from the terminal, for instance ...
Good Luck, friend ...

There's a lot to improve, before it becomes a really decent Mac-like theme. Please look at my modified Elementary Lion (with eGTK Leopard decoration and Macbuntu icons):

http://postimage.org/image/sd75tare3/

Here is another nice theme, this time for GNOME3 itself:

http://nanabuluku.deviantart.com/art/Radiamentary-255615403

Keep training and one day it might become really cool.:) To tell the truth, it's hard to find a Mac theme for GNOME3, even less a really good one, I appreciate any attempt to change this.:)

Actually, I am not trying to COPY any MAC idea, this is not my goal :)
So you should not judge me for this ...
THIS IS MY THEME ... and it's MacOS-like, as much as I want it to be.
The photo shot, that U pointed are not the Best ever seen for a Mac theme,
but nevertheless -> 'по вкусу и цвету, товарища нет ту ?!' ... :)

What do U mean by : "name/permissions/size"
what exactly do U want to achieve. My first photo-shot is a container image of the files in the pack, nothing more ...
I wanted to show to the guys what's in :)
OK, actually everything may be fixed - in the frame or size or icons, give me some code, U what to fix and I'll try to help U ...
