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.
Last changelog:

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

System-log errors corrected 8 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 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
