Description:

This is theme nearly looks like macOS lockscreen , 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), 18.04.xx LTS (Any other OS based on Linux like: Lubuntu, Xbunte, Kubuntu, KDE, Manjaro, Mint and other... didn't tested!!!).

For Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) download files:
High_Ubunterra_CC-X.X(noPass).tar.xz
High_Ubunterra_CC-X.X(Pass).tar.xz

Not work on few monitors ( Just don't have second monitor so i can't develop work version (-_-) Sorry ).

Two versions:
High_Ubunterra_X.X(noPass) - without asking password to set wallpaper but script give full permission for root folder " /usr/share/backgrounds/ " by chmod 777 (not safety).
High_Ubunterra_X.X(Pass) - with asking password each time you set wallpaper for change background of " lockscreen ", it is safe, but not comfortable for user.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

REQUIREMENTS:

1) Plank (https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/bionic/universe/base/plank)
Or
2) Dash to dock extension (tune it how you want to see the dock, turn it off and turn on Ubuntu Dock). This way tested work fine.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INSTALLATION howto:

1. Click right button of mouse and chose "Open in Terminal" in folder with install.sh, then type command ./install.sh

2. Now you just choose your image right click mouse button you will see script and "SetAsWallpaper" just click on it, wallpaper already set.

Enjoy!

Thank u for a new information for me. If u want to help me i will be glad to read your suggesting, i change path of background to /var/tmp, i tried /tmp but content of this folder wiped after system reboot, so now background will be saved in /var/tmp which has full permission by the script.

You can talk with him in Ukrainian. It will be easy for both you to help. He contributed with the Belarusian, Russian and Ukrainian translations of my Suru++ Telinkrin icons theme. Unfortunately I am not fluent in Russian ad Ukrainian yet while I am learning them slowly.

No no, you shouldn't use neither /tmp nor /var/tmp for your themes. It's just... If you want to copy something in /usr/share/... you should use something like "sudo cp your_background.jpg /usr/share/path/..." or "su -c 'cp your_background.jpg /usr/share/...' ". But please, don't change system's folders permissions :)

P.S. Please don't use /var/tmp as a background folder, it's a directory for temporary files, I didn't recommend that :)

Та а чего ты хочешь блин? Ты же написал что тэмпы единственные 2 папки которым можно дать рут права. Предлагай блин. Т.к. для работы скрипта без гемора для пользователей это размещение его в рут папке. Предложения!!!

Если юзать такой способ как ты предлагаешь придется каждый раз вводить пароль, это никому не нужно, если ты хочешь попробовать 5-20 обоек подряд ты просто задолбаешься пароль вводить. Это не выход это плохой UX. А безопасности рут на эту папку вреда это не принесет, разве что если быть сильным параноиком. Я лучше укажу эту инфу в доку и пусть люди знают но менять не буду т.к. это и для меня тоже удобно, ни каких эксплойтов или подобного в моих скриптах нет, ты сам видел. Просто более удобного варианта для пользователя чем такой нет!

И да просто "sudo cp your_background.jpg /usr/share/path/..." or "su -c 'cp your_background.jpg /usr/share/...' " пароль не запросит для этого pkexec юзать надо.

Hello, I love your theme, but I do not have Ubuntu yet. When I will have Ubuntu, I will test it. I bookmarked your theme.

I have a suggestion. The name "macOS High Sierra" is copyrighted by Apple. Apple is not an angel and can sue everybody. What about High Ubusierra?

I would propose to modify the script a bit to make it more robust and less error-prone. And I don't like making a system folder user-writable. So Instead I would use pkexec to ask for password to copy the GDM wallpaper.

I tested the script below on Ubuntu 18.04 and it works very well
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash
# Set As Wallpaper
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri file:///`pwd`/$1
sleep 5
# Make your wallpaper blurry
prefix="'file://"
suffix="'"
theImage=$(gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.background picture-uri)
theImage=${theImage#$prefix}
theImage=${theImage%$suffix}
convert "${theImage}" -blur 0x30 ~/Pictures/gdm_lock.jpg
# Copy wallpaper in system directory for gdm3 lockscreen
pkexec cp -f ~/Pictures/gdm_lock.jpg /usr/share/backgrounds/

# Enjoy!
# My contact eugene.veprytskyi@gmail.com

Yeah your propose make sense, but, i think its not to comfortable for users to enter password each time u want to change wallpaper. About me, i do it really often. About first part with prefix & suffix, yes maybe. But anyway thanks a lot about care my dev.

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

- did much faster for slow computers, now image will convert to smaller size to blur at next step, which make all process much faster, and this way make blur effect identical for any resolution images. Now you won't see different blur depth at images. All will be the same!
- image on lock screen make a little bit darker of original what makes text more readable on bright wallpapers

+ Hello! Great theme, thank you! I have been using it since I installed 18.04 and it is very beautiful. However, one ubuntu update (for lenovo laptop x260) changed something, and now I cannot get back your beautiful lock screen (font has changed for the time, and login is back to some ubuntu style, a long rectangle). Do you know how I could fix it? Also, how can I update to your newest versions, just download them and install them on top of older versions? Again, thanks a lot for sharing your great work )))
