(Formerly known as Gnome-OSC-themes)
This is a repository that contains Mac OS-themes for the Linux-Gnome desktop made by PaulXFCE (myself)
These are high end and thorougly developed GTK-themes for the gnome desktop (3.20+ through 3.28) that interpretes the Mac Os themes to the gnome-environment.
In the latest version (2.0) (McOS-MJV) I've modernized it in every little detail, such as truely rounded menu's, blue arrow-buttons on comboboxes. The McOS-MJV-dark-theme has been completely redone (visually) to look more true to the original, and look more crisp and usable.
The dark-mode is also available as a seperate theme (McOS-MJV-Darkv2.0), which has the benifit of having GTK2-applications enjoy the same dark mode.
A new version (2.0) for the Cinnamon-desktop. More details here.
You can find it here also, in the download-section.
There are now 2 new themes for the XFCE-desktop:
- McOS-MJV-XFCE-Edition 2.2
- McOS-MJV-Dark-XFCE-Edition 2.2
Version 2.0 of the MJV-editions
Updated to address issues with window-decoration giving exceptionally large resize-area around SSD-windows.
A new version (2.0) of the McOS MJV-XFCE-Edition is available in the download-section. click this link for more details.
Added McOS-MJV-Gnome-3.30 and McOS-MJV-Dark-mode-Gnome-3.30
And also McOS-SPG has now a Gnome 3.30-variant in the download-section.
Because of changes to nautilus, Gnome 3.30 requires adjustments to the theme. Unfortunately these changes conflict with the old theme. So I made versions especially for Gnome 3.30. See in the 'Files' tab for the downloadable themes.
There is a XFCE-edition of McOS-MJV available, visit this link for more details. It is also available in the download-section of this page.
For the McOS-XFCE-edition visit this link
In the download-section here you can download it too.
There are 2 versions available in the downloadable file here (Version I is for XFCE with Thunar-version below 1.8, II for version =>1.8)
For the Linux Mint Cinnamon community here is a special version:
Visit McOS-Mint-Cinnamon-Edition for more info.
In this download-section you can choose McOS-Mint-Cinnamon-Edition.
Careful: do not use the Cinnamon-version in the standard gnome version!
How to install:
There is 5 files to choose:
- McOS-MJV (the Mac OS Mojave (TM) interpretation
- McOS-MJV-Dark-Mode is the dark-mode interpretation
- McOS HS (this file contains two files, one with-/ one without transparency)
- McOS-SPG is a theme inspired by Garageband (TM) and Logic PRO (TM)
- McOS-YS is a theme inspired by the OSX Yosemite (TM) theme by Apple (TM)
- McOS-Shell-Themes contains Three shell themes
Download the file; extract it; and (in some cases ) you will find two themes. a version with transparency, another with (not-transparent); copy both files to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory. Or to your USR/SHARE/THEMES-folder for system-wide use (certainly for theming of SNAP-packages)
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK and shell theme.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take effect !
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:"
In Gnome 3.26 gnome-tweak has a option to change the position of the titlebuttons, so the above steps are not necessary.
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)
"sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf" is the terminal command, usually solves the issues with GTK2.
