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"

Header bar looks great. It's really better if you can increase the blurriness of the sidebar of nautilus.

Well, I've been thinkering on that too. But it appears that mac OSX uses an engine that continuously takes screenshots of the contents behind the window, blurs it and then put it back at the same place, in real time. There's simply no way to theme that on GTK...

Using a little blur on the background-wallpaper is a -cheap- option

Uploaded a new version: with blurred background instead of transparent color. Not really the best solution, But it looks slightly better...

I know that it's hard to get the real look of macOS finder to gnome nautilus. However the theme looks slightly better than the previous version.
Thanks for the amazing work.

not to say that it can't be improved upon.... the inactive window is a bit iffy...... but so far so good, one of the best ever

Yes, inactive windows with GTK 2-applications leaves the menubar-gradient intact. It should be totally flat, as it is on an actual Mac btw. Still looking for a solution.
Working on an update, so stay tuned...

I second to @LinuxGem33 the lighter theme would be more appealing and giving the light buttons the modern OSX looks is most attractive.

That being said, this is working flawlessly in the latest Arch Linux with GNOME v3.22.2 so kudos to @paulxcfe. Rock solid dev here.

Nice to see it working on other distro's too.

About the theme: The basis of this theme is still the Arc-theme. I've not changed the standard-buttons as such. I might do it in a next version. The alleged darker color on the headerbars is a bit strange, because I have a Macbook besides my linux-machine. I've matched the colors as much as I could. The confusion arises because the gradient on a larger area (for example the titlebar+menubar on Gimp) creates more dark grey, than the same gradient on a headerbar. The color-gradient is a careful trade-off between GTK2 and GTK3. But still, perhaps I could make it a bit lighter.

@paulxfce aka Manjarocinnamonfan

nice implementation Id suggest making the header bars slightly lighter to be more consistent with the newer osx colour pallet and slightly more drop shadows on the app frames but definitely a good effort, on a side note I’m developing a new theme along with a couple more css developers on github if your interested your welcome to jump on board and contribute and get involved just send a pull request on github or message me and ill add you as a contributor to the project.

kind regards

I'm a lone wolf on theming. But I guess I can contribute some. I've posted an 'issue' on your OSX-Arc+ repository. Just guide me further on this.

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
