Description:

I don't have time or motivation to maintain this icon theme anymore (this theme has not changed since version 3.3, Mar 17 2007). The fact that it still "kinda" works nearly a decade later (2015) is a small miracle. If anyone wants to take over its ownership, please contact me.
====================

This is (was) a complete refresh of the original OSX icon theme by Toby. I fixed every missing icon I could find, fixed the "tiny icon" problem and made enhancements. It is somewhat of a hybrid theme: I tried to make choices that seemed logical trying to keep a balance between usability and strict adherence to OS X.

2015 update: fixed the download link, nothing else.

I really love your icons, only I'm too noob to understand why they won't install. Usually I can install them with drag and drop (themes for ubuntu are .bz2)
Can you help me?

Well, I install this by dragging and dropping in the Theme Manager window. It usually works. I just tried.

If it does not for some obscure reason, you can decompress the archive into either:

~/.icons/
or
/usr/share/icons/

Can't get it to work in ubuntu as well. It installs well, creates the folder and all that jazz. Just doesn't apply any icons.

Ideas anyone?

I sometimes use just plain Clearlooks. In the "black white and green" one, it's "Mockup" for the GTK theme, and "Human" for the metacity theme.

Wow, you just found a bug :) I fixed it. The file has been updated. If you don't want to download the whole theme again, just go to scalable/apps/ and rename "thunderbird.png" to "mozilla-thunderbird.png"

Actually, two copies of that icon should exist, with each name, as the name depends on the version of thunderbird and the system in use, on the end-users computer.

Yeah, and why not amarok, gimp, leafpad, bash, and so on? ;)

(Just in case you were serious and did not know, Firefox does NOT integrate into GNOME and you have to use Firefox themes to change the icons.)

For a KDE version, as I do not use KDE myself, you guys would have to tell me what goes where or something. Besides, this is gnome-look.org no? ;)

If I knew how, I would already have added it. So try finding that out, otherwise I can't help you.

I'm also looking for the icons for "network places" when you have more than 5 network mounts. I have not seen any theme be able to use it, could anyone tell where the f... it is?

I should also add some "loading thumbnail" icon on the next update. But I need to figure out those issues first.

How can i install it? i tried to install as a theme using gnome theme manager, but it doesn't work..

hmmm... that is very strange, I have been able to install it myself on every machine I have simply by dragging the tar.gz onto the main theme manager window... don't know why you are having problems :|

About the sound icons not scaling so well: hmm, I should fix that I guess when I have a minute or two... if there are other flaws just tell me, it would make the update worthwhile.

How to change your folder icon if you can't stand the "mac" ones (I think I'll do that for myself actually ;) :
go to the folder where your icon theme is installed and into the filesystems icons directory, for example ~/.icons/OSX/scalable/filesystems
find a 128x128 pixels PNG that you would like as a folder icon
replace gnome-fs-directory.png, gnome-fs-directory-hover.png and gnome-fs-directory-accept.png with whatever you like

[1] Save the archive in you home directory, with the name "OSX2.1.tar.gz"

[2] Open a terminal ("Applications/Accessories/Terminal" in the menu)

[3] Decompress the archive. Just copy-paste the following command in the terminal window:

tar zxf OSX2.1.tar.gz

[4] If you want to install the icons just for yourself, move them to your "~/.icons" folder:

mv OSX ~/.icons

[5] To install the icons in the global icon folder:

(a) If you use Ubuntu, or any other distro that uses "sudo":

sudo mv OSX /usr/share/icons
sudo chmod -R +rx /usr/share/icons/OSX

(b) If your distro uses the root account:

su # Type your root password
mv OSX /usr/share/icons
chmod -R +rx /usr/share/icons/OSX

[6] Open the gnome-theme-manager, choose your GTK/Metacity theme, and then select the OSX icons

I just updated the file download. It seems I have mixed up versions or something, the volume icons were not included. Sorry about that ! About the license, I don't exactly know because it is mixed content: GPL (some complementary things from Tango, Humility, etc), and PNGs taken from osx-e.com, so I changed that to LGPL meanwhile. I am not sure on this issue. What I am sure of, though, is that I want a complete theme for myself that I love to use, and by the same occasion, share that with others instead of just duplicating work and having 20 incomplete themes lying around.
