Description:

This is theme nearly looks like macOS, with script which can set wallpaper for your desktop and simultaneously set same wallpaper on lock screen and login screen with blur effect like on macOS. In attachment you will find file ubuntu.css, where injected some changes, to make your login screen and lock screen looks more like mac OS.

ATTENTION: TESTED AND WORK ONLY ON UBUNTU 17.10 with GDM3 (xorg) and 18.04 LTS (ubuntu). (Any other OS based on Linux didn't tested!!!)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

REQUIREMENTS:

1) Plank (https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/bionic/universe/base/plank)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INSTRUCTION:

VIDEO INSTRUCTION: https://youtu.be/NMuiCFTpy7s

1. First of all you have to unpuck archive and change your ubuntu.css file (/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/ubuntu.css). changes in attachments.
# sudo cp /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/ubuntu.css /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/ubuntu.bak
# sudo cp ~/Downloads/ "folder with unpacked files' /ubuntu.css /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/
# sudo chmod 777 /usr/share/backgrounds/

2. Second thing is, set nautilus script by copying script it self "SetAsWallpaper" to '/home/click/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/'
then you have to change access for your script by "sudo chmod +x SetAsWallpaper" and enter root password.
Restart your nautilus in terminal by command nautilus -q, or killall nautilus.

3. Now you just choose your image right click mouse button you will see script and "SetAsWallpaper" just click on it, this is it.

4. It`s last step, and you have to do it just once. At the desktop right click on screen select "Change Background" then "Lock Screen" and "Pictures", find there your blurred image and choose it. Just once!

5. For avoiding issue in use, go to path /home/your_name/.cache/wallpaper and remove all files inside !!! (18.04 LTS)

Enjoy!

---------------------------------------------------------------
Addition:

If your interface another language, "not English" and text inside buttons don't fit in, you have to insert little changes in ubuntu.css

1717# /*login size prompt input*/
1722# width: 190px; /* change width 190px to size what more or less will be close to
size of your text inside buttons. Just try change width! */

1591# /* Avatar Auth Dialogs & Screen Shield */
1594# margin: 0 0 0 60px; /* change margin 60px to centered your avatar */

Does not work for Pop! _Os.
Did everything according to the instructions. The script can change the wallpaper, but that's all. There is no blurred image, and the lock screen itself has not changed.

Hi there
I've done everything in the tutorial to the letter

I just installed 18.04
fully update
now i'm trying to get macOS HS GDM Theme to work
i'vev done everything
- backed up ubuntu.css

- copied the new ubuntu.css
- chmod 777 /usr/share/backgrounds/

then copied SetAsWallpaper script to the right place
- cd ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts
- sudo chmod +x SetAsWallpaper

then restarted nautilus
- killall nautilus

then cleared ~/.cache/wallpaper

Now I go to the Pictures folder, I right click an Image -> scripts -> SetAsWallpaper
- nothing happens the wallpaper doesn't change
- after 5 seconds 2 new images are generated gdm_lock-0.jpg and gdm_lock-1.jpg they look like original ubuntu wallpaper not like my image and that's it

now if I set the picture as normal wallpaper then right click -> scripts -> SetAsWallpaper
the 2 generated images look blurred version of my image and then I go and select Lock Screen to be one of them
then
- Lock Screen has the blurred image but
- Dialog screen (where I put my password) is still Purple background

Hey there, first of all thanks for the cool gdm, looks soo nice! Now I've got a problem and maybe you know how to solve it. When I first boot the pc, th top bar icons aren't the ones on my profile but the Ubuntu defaults. Do you know how can I set my profile icons as default icons so everytime I boot my pc, the top bar icons are the shinny ones I've got? Thanks!
