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 dark theme, so Terminal, Photo's, and Video's are automatically dark-themed.
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 !
- Support for dark theme.
- Use of gradients and shadows to improve readability.
- 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
The 'Extra'-file contains the Droid Sans -font and some backgrounds.
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)
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 Droid Sans Regular (11pt,scaling factor:1,00) as the interface-font. (You can find the font in the 'Extra'-file in the download-section. Using other fonts (or bigger) might result in strangly formed buttons.
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"
The original version 2.6 remains available.

Solution for nautilus-menu-disabled-items -theming. New sidebar background
Thanks Gelonek for finding the bug. I appreciate the feedback!
Added a theme-version with no transparent sidebar (NT) 6 months ago
At request: a version with no transparency set for the nautilus sidebar.
Window resize area reduced 6 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 6 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 6 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 6 months ago
New Side-bar solution: using blurred background, instead of transparent color
Version 2 6 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
