(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 (McOS-MJV) I've modernized it in every little detail. There is nothing (not a single item) that is not new. Resulting in a completely rewritten GTK.CSS-file. it also contains the dark-mode (for applications that use it)
The dark-mode is also available as a seperate theme (McOS-MJV-Dark-Mode), which has the benifit of having GTK2-applications enjoy the same dark mode.
This is a gnome-interpretation of the Mac OS Mojave (TM) desktop, with the benifit of the dark mode
MC-OS-MJV-Dark-Mode :this is the gnome-interpreation of the Mac OS Mojave-dark-theme (TM)
This one contains the Mac OS High Sierra (TM) interpretation ( McOS-HS)
This older theme is the gnome-adaptation of the OSX-Yosemite (TM)
And finally a gnome-theme based on the looks of Logic Pro (TM) and Garageband (TM) called: McOS-SPG
How to install:
First: Download the file; extract it; and somethimes 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 !
Second: McOS 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:"
To put the buttons back to the right in case you want to revert:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"
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) gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora) gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE) gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf is the terminal command, usually solves the issues with GTK2.
