This is a XFCE-cation of my well received Gnome OSX-theme, a gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OSX.
Carefully crafted to blend seamlessly GTK2- and GTK3-applications. This theme is solid, tested and up-to-date for Gnome 3.26, to use as daily desktop-theme, adjusted to make it work on the XFCE-desktop.

This theme is build upon- and made to work for Xubuntu 17.10. This requires at least GTK 3.20+
Other XFCE-distro's might have problems.

The standard XFWM-windowmanager is used as the compositor, With the following specific settings in the Window Manager Tweaks:
- display compositing enabled.
- Synchronize drawing to the vertical blank enabled.
- Show shadows under dock windows enabled.
Opacity of popup windows is set more to the left (more transparency): this gives the translucency under the drop down-menu's. You can move the layer more to the left for more transparency.

To install:

Download the file and extract. Move the extracted file to your '.themes'-folder in your home-folder (you might have to make the folder first, if you haven't done it already.)
Open up the Appearance-app and select the style 'Gn-OSX-XFCE-Edition'
To make the titlebar: open up the Window Manager and select again 'Gn-OSX-XFCE-Edition'.

To move the buttons to the left ( in Window Manager ) click and drag the button layout so that you have CLOSE/MINIMIZE/MAXIMIZE and TITLE (in that order).

The 'EXTRA'-file that you can find in the download section contains the font I use: Myriad Set Pro Semibold. How to install? Just copy the myriad-set-pro_semibold.ttf to the '.fonts' in you home-folder
(you might have to make the folder first, if you haven't done it already.) Then, go to the Appearance-app and select the font ( I set it at 11 pt). You might want to do the same for the windowt-itle: So open up the Window-manager and select the font for the title font (I have set it at 10pt).

It extremely important that you use the font I provided because the theme somewhat depends on it.

You will notice that Whisker Menu is themed also.

The Icon theme is MAC OS by Umayanga, which you can find at Gnomelook.org.

you are using nautilus in a xfce-desktop? This is asking for trouble, because gnome uses a different windowmanager, the window-shadow is thus drawn by two subsequent managers, hence the black border.

Hello Paul
I'm trying the new osx theme for xfce on my old inspiron 1520 (nvidia driver 340.106) and i'd like to tell you a little problem on the appearance of the wifi panel menu. I insert links for an example image: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Bzb2u6ruvl2iI6XB3
Thanks for the great job always.
