I made this for fun. :P

GTK Theme based on Lauri Taimila's theme http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/show.php?content=56577
and maruo's Kougyoku http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Kougyoku-aqua?content=60804

#####NOTES#####

This theme is based on OSX Tiger Theme and Kougyoku. The icon theme is based on Mac4Lin.

This theme requires that you have the mac menubar applet (by AqD) or the new global menu.

Choose the one by AqD if you want the application title name next to the menu (the bolded text).

#####FONTS#####

You will need Lucida Grande, Lucida Sans, LucidaMAC.
Get them from:
http://www.webpagepublicity.com/free-fonts-l3.html#Free%20Fonts
http://www.osx-e.com/downloads/misc/macfonts.html

To install the fonts, extract them to /home/YOURUSERNAMEHERE/.fonts

#####THEME INSTALLATION#####

1) Go to System > Preferences > Appearance.

2) Go to the Theme tab. Drag the Platinum.tar.gz archive to the Appearance window.

3) Drag the Aqua.tar.gz archive to the Appearance window. Click on the Customize button. In the Controls tab, select Platinum. In the Icons tab, select Aqua.

4) Double-click on the Platinum.emerald theme, and an Emerald file browser should pop up. You should select the Platinum.emerald theme at this point and click Open, then select the Platinum theme.

#####PANELS#####

If you want the rounded panel, go to

http://www.taimila.com/?q=node/11

and scroll down to Emulating OS X Menubar. There you will see background images. Download the one that corresponds to your screen resolution.

Right-click on an empty space on your top panel. Set the height as 24. Go to the Background tab. Select Background image and browse to the folder you saved Taimila's panel background images to. Select the image that corresponds to your screen resolution.

early version, i kno, but it needs some work, but very nice so far!

PS I would recommend not using firefox 2 for preview purposes ;) Switch to version 3 (under the "developers" tab) It used the proper GTK buttons and such among other things.
