Description:

GNOME-OSX 2.0

Made by paulxfce (alias Manjarocinnamonfan, paulubuntu)

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"

Thanks for finding this, my system was choppy as heck and I installed this theme around the same time I did some passthrough voodoo on my virtual machine and assumed the slow down was because of my tinkering. Turns out the insane amount of logging was the slowdown. Thanks again!

Yes--I do a quick tail /var/log/syslog to verify themes I put on my system...a log-flood will show up very quickly .

And how to let the nautilus' side-bar opaque? I think that it is better with transparent.

the problem has been solved. I thought that it is by setting the rgba(), now I find the .png file and edit it. I think it looks better.

Yes, the blurred png is a rudimentary hack. Still searching for a more elegant solution.

Thanks, Neon-project 'on-hold' because of persistent bugs on Gnome-OSX. But it is my next item...

As I heard it is not possible on GTK3 to blur the window content of the background. Because it is still unreadable if a text is below the window I recommend two solution. Reduce the opacity by far, or change it to a blurred static image instead of a transparent color. By the way the rest is really good. Congratulation.

In the latest (2.1) I've put a 'blurred' background-image. It's cleaner but not yet good enough.

Just tried v2.1 and just as solid, the new button designs is much cleaner. The only thing I could critique about this is to set up the dark theme variant to tie into apps that use the dark theme flag like gnome-image-viewer.

Still a solid build on Arch with GNOME v3.22.2.

Well, OSX does not have a dark variant. That's why it is deliberately not included. Besides, allot of tinkering is made purely for the normal GTK-version. Which would require allot of extra work if I had to port it to the darker version.

If elementary os supports GTK 3.20, perhaps?

elementary OS doesn't supports GTK 3.20. It supports GTK 3.18.

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
