This is a gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OSX. I've tried to implement the feel of OSX on the gnome-applications. In version 3.0 I've modernized it in every little detail. There is nothing (not a single item) that is not new. Resulting in a completely rewritten GTK.CSS-file four times bigger than the previous one, while the theme feels more responsive. I've also added a new dark theme (Space-grey) , so Terminal, Photo's, and Video's are automatically dark-themed.

Gnome-OSX-IV-Space-Grey is also available seperately. This has the benefit of GTK 2.0- theming also.



I've spend a great deal of time (3 months) and effort on this theme into fine-tuning it, so I hope you try before you judge !


Main features:

- Support for dark theme.(Space grey)
- Use of gradients and shadows to improve readability.
- Same theming across GTK2 and GTK3. (See screenshots)

Separate download for Shell-themes:
- New Shell-theme to complement the Space-grey-variant
- Shell theme with white dock and slighty dark top-bar
- Shell theme with dark dock and dark top-bar

The 'Extra'-file contains fonts and some backgrounds.

This theme is developed on gnome 3.20 and updated to 3.26
This only works on a gnome-desktop, no support for other desktop-environments.
It also works on Ubuntu 17.10

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)

IMPORTANT:

The latest gnome-distributions use Wayland (such as Ubuntu 17.10) instead of Xorg as the default compositor. This has the annoying problem that you can not install Synaptic Package Manager ( or at least it just does not show up, if you have). Why would I need Synaptic Package Manager? Because Ubuntu 17.10 does not support GTK2- applications properly, resulting in weird theming ). And you need some packages that are not present in the default 'Ubuntu Software'. How to solve this?

1. If you are in Ubuntu 17.10: log out, then, when you log back in under your username you have a settings-icon, choose Xorg in the drop-down list. This starts your session using Xorg as the compositor.
2. Open up Ubuntu Software and install Synaptic Package Manager.
3. When finished, fire up Synaptic Package Manager and install gtk2-engines-pixbuf (and its dependencies).
4. When finished, restart your computer.

This results in GTK 2 applications such as 'The Gimp' and 'Inkscape' to be themed properly.

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf is the terminal command, if you want the easy way.

On the subject: I personally use Xorg as the compositor because the color-picker (an important tool for graphical applications) does not work under Wayland. And I get to use the Synaptic Package Manager, which is (in my opinion ) better than the default Ubuntu Software. Next, under Wayland, Drop-down menus on GTK2-applications tend to remain visible even if you change applications, which is a very annoying bug. (at least in my set-up)



How to install:

First: 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 !

Second: This theme was set out to use Myriad Set Pro Semibold (12pt,scaling factor:1,00) as the interface-font. This font is easy to get. Just google it...

Third: OSX uses titlebuttons on the left-side:
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"

In Gnome 3.26 gnome-tweak has a option to change the position of the titlebuttons, so the above steps are not necessary.



The original version 2.6 remains available.

This is perfect! Thank you :) for anyone wanting the white panel, edit gnome-shell.css and do the following;

Under #Panel, change background-color to rgba(251, 251, 251, 0.92). then under #panel .panel-button change color to #303030. It's as close as I'm going to get it :)

Any chance to port this to CentOS 7 / RHEL 7 and other distros that uses older GTK? I'm running RHEL 7.3 and I have GTK 3.14 here.

Thanks in advance!

GTK 3.14 has different CSS-code. It would require me to redo every setting again to comply with a (sorry) outdated gtk. From a designer view -while I understand people sometimes need to keep their old OS - the newer GTK-versions allow for more customization. Seeing that most users update their system anyway, I tend to keep my themes complying with the latest GTK.

Great work! I love this theme, it really deserves a PPA. Only problem I've found is that windows' shadows makes surrounding window resize area too thick. If I have two overlapping windows and I click on the one in background, if I don't click far enough from the foreground window border the click will not arrive to the background one and the cursor got the 'resize' shape.

Hey Paul,

I am writing a layout manager for GNOME and I like your theme. I hope you are OK with my script linking to your theme.

Here is the said script: https://github.com/bill-mavromatis/gnome-layout-manager/blob/master/layoutmanager.sh
It is also mentioned in this page: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/04/easily-change-gnome-layout

I added you on the credits too. Please let me know if it's fine.

Regards,

@paulxfce Thank you! Would it be possible if I asked for one small favor? Whenever you update the file the Download ID on gnome-look changes so I have to manually edit the script everytime. Would it be possible by any chance, to upload on Github (or any host) and then link to there from within gnome-look? That way the URL stays consistent. Thanks!

This has to be one of the best GTK themes ever, really well done, excellent readability and looks beautiful as well. Any chance for an optional version with non OSX-like buttons? I know this is an OSX inspired theme, but this theme would look great even as non OSX theme with different buttons, its readability and appearance is excellent, in any case thank you for your work, it is a real pleasure to use this theme. Do you have any plans for making a Gnome shell theme? I tried many OSX inspired shell themes yet I didnt like any of them, many get the colors of the panel right, but panel menus tend to be too bright, too chaotic etc. None of them look nearly as good as your GTK theme. I am using Gnome-OSX-Light-Shell, but while it looks good it is not a clone of OSX shell theme, it is darker and transparent, but it looks good, clean lines and everything looks pretty good. I tried various other OSX inspired shell themes and all suffer from panel menus being too bright and/or too chaotic, your GTK theme has colors perfectly done and now it just needs a complementary shell theme.

How did you manage to get Chromium to look like this ? I'm locked with default "minimize, maximize, close" chromium buttons.

More over, do you plan to try to get the bar at the top of the screen (the one with the data, wifi, battery and so on) to be grey and look like the one on MacOS ? It's the one thing I like the most about macOS, this small bar looks better than the one we have.

Thanks for your work.

right-click on the empty space right to the tabs; then choose system titlebar and borders.
The top-bar in OSX is the menubar. Which has nothing to do with the topbar in gnome. I've provided two themes already, but not with a white topbar. There are other shell themes out there that provide what you want...

Window resize area reduced 8 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.

Refining theme 8 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 8 months ago

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

Version 2 8 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
