Description:

I modified the osx theme to make it look like the new Leopard style.


----------------------
Original OSX theme:

Leopard on Apple.com

UPDATE:

I improved the whole look, and added a iconset.

Hi, very good work...
i have an issue on the upper panel.. i can't make it all trasparent.. the background on application menù is grey.. i would make it trasparent as the rest of panel
can you explain me how can i do??

another issue is if i use the color theme for panel without trasparency, there are 2 kind of grey, one on the application menù (the same that i would make trasparent) and one a little bit lighter on the rest of panel
thanks a lot :)

When clicking on the Applications menu item, the drop down fonts are smaller compared to the drop downs of Places and System.

Hi Kimmik, I found two issues you might want to look into for the next version of the theme:

- in Evolution the column headers in Tasks looks too 'raw'. I don't know how to describe it, but I can email you screenshots if you want

- still in Evolution, the background color of the New button has a different shade of gray than the rest of the toolbar.

>>new button problem

This happens because evolution uses a uncommon widget in its toolbar.
It not a theme specific problem.

I'm used to installing themes through Gnome's theme manager. The downloadable archive has two folders. How do I install these into my themes?

Don't untar the archive.
Install the complete .tar.gz.
Its the gtk and metacity theme bundled.

Neat.
Since yesterday I was working on my own stuff un-aware of this. I got to making a panel background, start button, and search icon. I'll post a screenshot of my desktop in a moment.

They were more like I'd like them to be instead of what Apple made.

Any chance of getting your metacity theme ported to emerald?

Nice work!

If you install heliodor, you can use metacity themes as your beryl window decorations.

good work! :) I like it, except the look of buttons and scroll bar - in my opinion they dont't match well with this theme..

You themes is too impressive. I tried to use your "muku" theme, but rolled back to Nimbus one immediately. I wish your next theme wont't be just a copy of Vista or MacOsX, but bring your own ideas.

Where did you get the wallpaper from:)

It looks nice, but you see... we miss something - the graphics engine... i think it is futile to try to copy OSX further, they introduced quicklook and tons of animations everywhere, copying the cocoa elements just wont do it anymore.

Sorry, but this is the truth.

I used a screenshot from apple.com and cropped it a little bit.

"It looks nice, but you see... we miss something - the graphics engine... i think it is futile to try to copy OSX further, they introduced quicklook and tons of animations everywhere, copying the cocoa elements just wont do it anymore."

Hmm, a lot of effects are already available on Linux, for example the wall plugin for Beryl (its exactly like "places").

I dissagree with that, as we only have TOPLEVEL window effects, nothing more.

In OSX you can have effects inside a window on an application level, something we will long for years from now. And this is sad, as they are using really the same hardware, like Intel 950,I played around with one yesterday, you will be impressed what it can do with this simple card compared to compiz/beryl.

Face it guys, we are BEHIND!

Not that I will give apple any money, they make lots of things wrong, but the graphics subsystem is YEARS ahead, I swear:)

So.... as we still hear only promises for support on toolkit level of the composite and so on, I believe it will be better if we not copy OSX anymore, I even hate the transparent menubar up:)
