Mac OSX-like GNOME Theme Style
The design of Mac OSX’s theme is very nice. I am always looking for a good theme for my Linux desktop. There are designs influenced by Mac’s style which looks pretty good in GNOME.
How to set it up
This theme is a mixture of Mac OS X Bundle 2.1, iRaveH20 3 Icon Theme (Full Gnome/XFCE) Lights 3.0 and Oxygen-cursor-themes 4.4.4 which is originally designed for KDE desktop.
InstallationThe theme controls, the window border and the desktop background comes from Mac OS X Bundle. Download the package from the link in gnome-look.org and unpack it. You can get one picture and two tarballs. Then they can be easily installed by using the “install” button in Gnome’s “Appearance Preference” tool. For the background picture, just copy it somewhere.
The iRaveH20 Icon theme can also be installed by the “install” button. The Oxygen cursor theme is already in Fedora’s repository. If you use another Linux distribution that have KDE desktop environment which is the usual case, you can easily install the cursor theme which is a part of KDE. In my box, I can install it by:
# yum install oxygen-cursor-themes
ConfigurationAfter installing them, select any theme in the theme window and then click the “customize” button. The “Customize theme” window will appears. Select “mac-osx-controls” in the “Controls” tab, select “mac-osx-window” in “Window Border” tab, select “iRaveH20 3 Lights Edition” for icons and choose “Oxygen_Blue” for cursor them. The background can be added by clicking “add” button and choose the picture stored before.
This the style of my favorite. It’s stable and making me happy with my terminal. Of course, there are lots of other combination of these themes or others. Choose the one that you prefer ;) Linux is free and open for everyone.
