Description:

I didnt find any theme that fitted my taste, so i modified some of the available themes and made a pack of it.. Hope someone likes the classic platinum look as much as i do.

To get the global menu you must install the gnome panel applet for that particular function.

Main package includes GTK+Metacity+Cursors+Font+Wallpaper
But i have also added an GDM theme as stand alone download. (available as the second link.
ALSO: This pack is as far as i know this is only for manual install... Might wotk, but i havent tested the automated sollutions.

Better quality screenshot is available at http://judgen.googlepages.com/MacOS-Classic-Linux.png

I don know why the link does not show up in the bar but here it is atleast: http://judgen.googlepages.com/MacOS-Classic.tar.gz

still one of my all time favourite themes. Do you ever consider porting it to GTK3, or do you know where I can at least get a MacOS classic theme for GTK3 from?

I abandoned gnome when they moved to GTK3 as it is just awful. Porting is almost impossible since gtk3 only allows stylesheet themes without depth, you would be better of trying to write one from scratch.

But my guess is that there will never be a MacOS Classic theme with reasonable similarity to the original Apple style for GTK3. Perhaps in gtk4 if the gnome devs reverse on their theming decisions. (But i find that even more unlikely)

I'm really surprised I got a response to this, so thanks heaps for that! Personally, I use i3 for my workhorse. GNOME3 is the home PC. I just love the look of the old MacOS System.

FYI, JPEG is a lousy format for screenshots.

Nice effort on the OS9 front though.

Thank you. MacOS 9 was a pearl in usabillity, but the icons was god awful.. =). Allthough there are a few icons here on gnome look in svg inspired from rhapsody that i could use to make a icon theme in the future.

It would be fantastic if you would add a download link.
