Description:

GNOME-OSX 2.0

Made by paulxfce (alias Manjarocinnamonfan, paulubuntu)

New additional theme:

Gnome-OSX with No Transparent sidebar (NT)

Latest update:
new update: 10/6/2017: bug fixes
New update 14/5/2017: compliant with gnome 3.24; smaller headerbar and buttons; removed redundant code; added Github-page
New update 16/02/2017
New update 12/2/2017
New Update: 11/2/2017
New Update 9/2/2017
UPDATE: completely new version.


This is a gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OSX. I've tried to implement the feel of OSX on the gnome-applications.

Initially based on the Arc-theme-files.

I've spend a great deal of time and effort on this theme into fine-tuning it, so I hope you try before you judge !


Main features:

- Nautilus with blurred sidebar.
- Same theming across GTK2 and GTK3. (See screenshots)

Separate download for Shell-themes:

- Shell theme with white dock and slighty dark top-bar
- Shell theme with dark dock and dark top-bar

This theme is developed on gnome 3.20 and updated to 3.24
This only works on a gnome-desktop, no support for other desktop-environments.

When, as such, theming does not look the way it should be: make sure you have installed the necessary theme-"engines":

- The gnome-themes-standard package,
- The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
gtk-engine-murrine (Arch Linux)
gtk2-engines-murrine (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)


How to install:

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK and shell theme.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take effect !



To put the buttons to the left open a terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout "close,minimize,maximize:"

To put the buttons back to the right in case you want to revert:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"

Yes, I've installed Fedora 25 with updates yesterday and I have the same problem. This is annoying because it is on nautilus 3.22.3; which apparently uses a different menu then in previous versions. The problem occurs when the option (in this case setting a new bookmark) is grayed out, because the file you are seeing is already on the sidebar, so it cannot be bookmarked. So it would have to be a problem with the settings for grayed out buttons. I will look into it.

Sorry to ask, but when I decompress the archive, there's no index.theme file on it. How do I install this on Ubuntu? Thanks in advance.

Sorry, Redwolf, only the ubuntu gnome 16.10 is supported. Not the standard Ubuntu.

Thanx, Standard Ubuntu does not do justice to my theme. I prefer to remain to one single gnome-desktop environment

Hey I'm trying to keep up with the updates since i love since i love your theme... Speaking of which, I have a problem to resize windows... It is very laggy and sluggish (especially with firefox) which does not happen with other themes (i checked default theme adwaita - I'm on Fedora 25/Gnome 3.22). Any idea why ?

I can't find anything theme-related that could explain this. I cannot help you with this...

Report

It does not seem to be theme-related. I installed fedora 25 yesterday. And I did have the same sluginess with firefox. But it did happen also with the standard-adwaita-theme. So it is either Fedora or the latest gnome 3.22 that poses the problem. I think...

The issue has been reported in other forums. Presumed to be Wayland-related. Fedora 25 uses Wayland instead of Xorg.

thx for taking time to investigate. I'm running Xorg and not wayland though (still too many issues in my opinion). So i don't know but i'm still using your theme :)

Hi, I'm running gnome 3.20.2 and I'm having an issue with the window resize. It appears the title bar is registering about 2x the height of the actual title bar so when I go to click on something behind a window it simply treats it as though I am trying to resize the current window. Here's a screenshot: http://imgur.com/a/YAT9T Can I edit something in a css file or anything? I'm not too sure if it's the theme or if it's this version of gnome.

You are absolutely right. The margin was set to 10px. Now reduced it to 3px. Please download the corrected version (2.4). Thanks for the feedback !

Yes, I see it does. This is because the GTK.CSS file is not correctly generated from the SASS-files. I will have to go through all the color-items in the CSS-file to remove the 'lighten' and 'Solid' errors. Expect an update soon...

Thanks Gelonek for finding the bug. I appreciate the feedback!

Added a theme-version with no transparent sidebar (NT) 3 months ago

At request: a version with no transparency set for the nautilus sidebar.

Window resize area reduced 3 months ago

'Melk' pointed out to the problem of the large area the resizing cursor takes before the pointer focusses on the other items on the desktop. He is absolutely right. The margin was set to 10px. Which is wrong. I now reduced the margin-size to 3px. I re-uploaded a correct version (an update again...) 2.4.

System-log errors corrected 3 months ago

Autocrosser1 pointed out that the theme created 'log-flooding', which pointed to colors not defined properly. Updated the download-file with a corrected version 2.3

Refining theme 3 months ago

-fixed the round button on sliders not showing a border
-made new check-and radio buttons
-harmonized the size and spacing of check-and radio buttons across GTK2- and GTK- applications
-removed the dotted inner box that showed the focus-button, because it was ugly...
- harmonized the line-color and depth beneath the headerbar or menubar across GTK2 and GTK3
-Blurred background remains even in maximized window-state
-removed the dotted line that appears at the top or bottom when scrolling trough lenghty lists (overshoot and undershoot)
reduced the default button-height to 20px, thereby making the buttons smaller in GTK3

Side-bar 3 months ago

New Side-bar solution: using blurred background, instead of transparent color

Version 2 3 months ago

Major changes in this theme:
- lighter theme, with rounded buttons
- transparent sidebar with bolded text-elements (just like mac-osx-finder)
- elevated and rounded buttons
- exclusion of original unfocused window theming: only title-buttons are greyed out
- overall fine-tuning
