This is a XFCE-cation of my well received Gnome OSC-theme, a gnome-desktop-interpretation of a certain Cupertino-based OS.
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-OSC-XFCE-Edition'
To make the titlebar: open up the Window Manager and select again 'Gn-OSC-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).

You will notice that Whisker Menu is themed also.
The icon-theme is not included.

Hey there. I do understand that this theme was specifically done for Xubuntu. However, I installed it in my Sabayon (XFCE) and everything seems to work well except for one thing: the color schemes, in Appearance, turns the windows greyish-black (not white/grey). Although I know this theme didn’t aim any other operating system than Xubuntu, would anyone help me and explain to me what is wrong? Thank you very much. All the best!

I'm not the author, but my guess is the GTK3 version used in your Sabayon setup.
Or the XFCE version itself.

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.
