Theme Mac Os X For Ubuntu

If you’re looking for a Mac theme for Linux, look no further.

GNOME-OSX II is (as you might have already guessed) a Mac GTK theme for Linux desktops — and it’s a pretty pretty adaptation.

‘This theme is a ‘gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OS X”

Mac OS X theme is available for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise/Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric/Linux Mint (Gnome Shell and Unity). It is easy to install this theme, This theme is not so perfect but something is better than nothing. You can say this theme is MacBuntu 11.10 or Mac4lin.

Yup, this is not an out-and-out copy of the standard UI in macOS. The theme describes itself as “a gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OS X”, with the theme designer saying they’ve “tried to implement the feel of OS X on the gnome-applications.”

This means the theme it’s not trying to be a pixel-perfect clone of the macOS theme — and there are plenty of GTK themes that try to do that out there — but instead adapts the core design of Cupertino’s desktop OS in a way that makes sense (and looks best) on the GNOME desktop.

The GNOME-OSX II theme works with most modern GNOME-based desktops, including GNOME Shell, GNOME Flashback, and Budgie. But the theme does not work with the Unity desktop.

Aside from evoking the form and function of macOS there are some novel touches too, such as the use of a blurred sidebar in the Nautilus file manager, and consistent theming across GTK2 and GTK3 apps.

A compataible GNOME Shell theme is also available to download for those wanting even more mac-inspired bling for their desktops.
