Yosemite Gtk Theme is one of the best MacOS Theme for Ubuntu available out there for Ubuntu and other Linux derivatives. Yosemite Gtk Theme is a Mac OSX like a theme for GTK 3, GTK 2 and Gnome-Shell which supports GTK 3 and GTK 2 based desktop environments like. Nice theme that has apparently lost its support.Man that is sad because this is one nice - theme. You can use a different WM theme on for Xfce and it works other wise the menu's pop up in the corners instead of in center of screen. A Yosemite theme I'm working on for Ubuntu 14.04, any suggestions would be really appreciated. Changelog: 0.1 Fixed Unity Launcher Indicators 0.2 Added Check-boxes and Radio Buttons Credit to the creator of the Cenozoic theme that I used as the base. Icons coming really soon!
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.
Pick the Right Desktop Environment. To achieve the most Mac-like look on Linux you. Finally after a lot of work Mac OS X (Macbuntu Yosemite) transformation pack is ready for Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn/14.04 Trusty Tahr. We could make everything automated but in this way you guys won't get how things done in Linux, so we kept everything semi-automatic and interactive.
‘This theme is a ‘gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OS X”
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.
Why do this?
Debate about the merits (or otherwise) of theming a Linux desktop to look like another operating system arises every time a theme like this is presented.
The terse answer is, if you can’t understand the appeal, sense or logic in doing it: don’t.
Whether you have Apple envy or simply admire and appreciate the design aesthetic of a macOS, there’s no shame if you decide to make Ubuntu look like Mac. The whole point of using Linux is (after all) that you can do things like this — you certainly can’t make Mac OS X look like Ubuntu!
Download GNOME-OSX Mac theme for Linux
The GNOME OS X II theme requires GNOME 3.20 or later. To use it on Ubuntu you need to be running Ubuntu 16.10 or above.
Once the download is complete you need to extract the tarball to your
Finally, to switch theme on you need to use the GNOME Tweak Tool, which is available to install from Ubuntu Software.
For a more faithful mac-ification try the La Capitaine Mac icon theme for Linux, also available as a free download from GNOME-Look.
A new GTK theme brings the luscious look of macOS Mojave to the Linux desktop.
Not that you should be surprised; we’ve written before about how easy it is to make Ubuntu look like a Mac.
But thanks to this new macOS Mojave inspired GTK theme that fact is truer, and more faithful, than ever.
macOS Dark Theme for Linux
Apple unveiled macOS Mojave at its WWDC 2018 event earlier this month. The OS upgrade features a stack of changes, among them a new system-wide dark theme.
Major innovation, right?
In our post looking at macOS Mojave features already available on Linux we mentioned that support for system-wide dark themes is something Linux has had for, like, forever.
Now, with the release of the “Mc-OS-MJV” GTK3 theme, the look is available on Ubuntu and other Linux distros.
HOW DARE PEOPLE DO THIS!!!!1
Okay, elephant in the room time.
Fact #1: not everyone “likes” the fact some people who use Linux distros theme them to look like another operating system.
I say each to their own; the flexibility of Linux is such that people can make their desktop look as crazy cool or as crazy stupid as they like (though I’ll let you decide where macOS themes fall in that).
Fact #2: people running macOS and Windows 10 have a hard time trying to make their system look like anything else, let alone mimic a different OS.
The look of Apple’s operating system isn’t exactly terrible, either.
MacOS Mojave GTK Theme
Launched on GNOME Look this week, the new “Mc-OS-Mjv” GTK theme is the work of prolific theme creator, “PaulXFCE“.
We’ve featured some of his other themes on this site before, including Ambiance-RW (so good that Ubuntu devs borrowed ideas from it for the official Ambiance theme) and the “so-bad-it’s-sort-of-good” Arrongin.
Of his latest creation he says (all sic): “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.”
“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.”
Because it’s the dark theme in macOS Mojave that has Mac enthusiasts its the one I’ve chosen to use screenshots of in this post. A standard light version is also available.
Mac Os Yosemite Theme For Ubuntu 7
He’s Made Other macOS GTK Themes, too
Not a fan of the Mojave changes? Paul’s “interpretations” of macOS High Sierra and macOS Yosemite are still available to download, as is a theme based on the (now older) dark themes used in Apple’s Logic and Garageband software.
Download Dark macOS Mojave GTK Theme
Ubuntu 18.04 Mac Os Theme
You can find all of PaulXFCE’s Mac OS themes over on GitHub as well as on GNOME-Look.
For the darkly brilliant Mojave inspired clone be sure to download the “mc-os-mjv dark mode” package.
- Download the theme from GNOME-Look
- Extract the archive file to the ~/.themes/ directory in your Home folder
- Change GTK theme using the GNOME Tweaks tool
It should go without saying (but I’ll sat it anyone to bump up the word count) that these themes are not endorsed by Apple, etc. Each time someone uses a macOS theme on Linux Tim Cook’s hair turns greyer.
