Description:

Ok. Why another Mac-ish theme ? Well, I wasn't quite happy with most of the mac-ish themes available out there as none of them (that I know) were really up-to-date or taking into account a number of issues.

So, what I did is:

1-Design a brand new pixmap/clearlooks theme based upon the latest standards (I also took a lot of screenshots, and a lot of inspiration from the Gran Glossy P theme for the pixart).

2- I designed from scratch a new metacity theme based upon the human hardy metacity engine. All buttons were designed with inkscape and are thus in SVG format.

3- I chose not to make this theme entirely based upon the pixmap engine (clearlooks engine did the rest !) as I love to use a number of apps that actually don't like the pixmap engine so much...

As a conclusion, I'm happy with the result and now glad to share it. (Edit 21-04-2008 - I'm actually really proud of it !)

Logos, design and anything that make this theme look like the real deal are owned by Apple. Thus, not GPL at all !
Last changelog:

6 years ago

2.5: Changed the metacity theme to a less 'obvious' one. In the eternal style. Also changed the scrollbars to squared ones.

2.4: Relased a matching iconset

2.3: Adjusted metacity title text color. - Fixed issues with some panel applets.

2.2: Slightly resized the check and radio buttons.

2.1: Major update. In the process of designing the matching iconset, I ended redesigning every single bit of graphic from scratch using inkscape.

ALSO, added notebooks graphics.

It seems to me I found a tiny but unpleasant bug. You can see it on the screenshot (the link below). This is a part of Mozilla Thunderbird's "Preferences" window:

The interesting effect is in NetBeans 6.5 IDE (which is Java application, but uses GTK+ look-and-feel). There are both normal and "blanked" tabs:

Thanks for cool theme anyway! %)

Well... Well done ! Never seen that one before ! Matteroffactly, I'll upload this weekend a new version of Munics rather more based on the new default ubuntu GTK2 engine. I fear it won't be compatible with a few systems but it is rather faster (not pixmap based) and I expect a lot of feedback from the community to address most of the system-related issues... We'll see...

I love it! =)

Have you made more Themes.. being the same way of this one.. not needing any Engines.. nore anything, to work perfectly as simple from installing normally Ubuntu 8.10 ... Working exactly how this very same theme you made works?

I expect all my themes to work natively on ubuntu 8.10 as the engines I use are already packaged in it as default engines.

Thank you for your appreciation.

Is there an Emerald theme out there that will duplicate the Metacity theme you've designed here? I love the look, but I also prefer Emerald.

Well... You haven't missed anything ! In fact, I was quite busy moving houses and making a lot of changes on a personal level. Additionally, I didn't have internet for nearly 2 months... Well, About theming, I'm trying to understand how engines are evolving and how one can come up with decently new designs as well as compatible on most linux distros...

There is something wrong with the notebook graphics. It seems the top side picture of the inactive notebook is missing. Is there anyone with the same problem?

Great theme, mac-ish look without altering the functionality (other mac themes with the close, maximize and minimize buttons at the top left instead of top right really irritate me).

One small niggle that I might even try and modify myself, the titlebar text of windows is a little rough to read, could stand a bit more contrast.

Otherwise top points. Best mac theme I've used so far.

It seems that the edges of the main buttons are not sharp enough compared to other widgets ?

Installed both clearlooks and pixmap, with no result. Are you using cutting-edge builds not immediatly available for us regular mortals?

Report

No Cvs here. I've got 3 computers running gnome 2.20 (ubunut 8.04, Archlinux, Debian Sid) and I'm just using the regular clearlooks and pixmap engines.

I'm suprised it doesn't work... what are you using ?
