This is a gnome-desktop-interpretation of a certain Cupertino-based OS. I've tried to implement the feel of it on the gnome-applications, without really copying it (to prevent copyright-issues). In the latest version 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 four times bigger than the previous one, while the theme feels more responsive. I've also added a new dark theme (Space-grey) , so Terminal, Photo's, and Video's are automatically dark-themed.
Gnome-OSC-Space-Grey is also available seperately. This has the benefit of GTK 2.0- theming also.
Added the HS-variant too.
New: Traditional and HS come with a variant that uses light background for menu's. Useful for those with bad ( blueish )screens, since menu's tend to be blue instead of grey.
I've spend a great deal of time (3 months) and effort on this theme into fine-tuning it, so I hope you try before you judge !
- Support for dark theme.(Space grey)
- Use of gradients and shadows to improve readability.
- Same theming across GTK2 and GTK3. (See screenshots).
Separate download for Shell-themes:
- New Shell-theme to complement the Space-grey-variant
- Shell theme with white dock and slighty dark top-bar
- Shell theme with dark dock and dark top-bar.
This theme is developed on gnome 3.20 and updated to 3.28
This only works on a gnome-desktop, no support for other desktop-environments.
It also works on Ubuntu 18.04
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.
How to install:
First: Download the file; extract it; and 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: 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:"
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.

Window resize area reduced 1 year ago
'Melk' pointed out to the problem of the large area the resizing cursor takes before the pointer focusses on the other items on the desktop. He is absolutely right. The margin was set to 10px. Which is wrong. I now reduced the margin-size to 3px. I re-uploaded a correct version (an update again...) 2.4.
System-log errors corrected 1 year ago
Autocrosser1 pointed out that the theme created 'log-flooding', which pointed to colors not defined properly. Updated the download-file with a corrected version 2.3
Refining theme 1 year ago
-fixed the round button on sliders not showing a border
-made new check-and radio buttons
-harmonized the size and spacing of check-and radio buttons across GTK2- and GTK- applications
-removed the dotted inner box that showed the focus-button, because it was ugly...
- harmonized the line-color and depth beneath the headerbar or menubar across GTK2 and GTK3
-Blurred background remains even in maximized window-state
-removed the dotted line that appears at the top or bottom when scrolling trough lenghty lists (overshoot and undershoot)
reduced the default button-height to 20px, thereby making the buttons smaller in GTK3
Side-bar 1 year ago
New Side-bar solution: using blurred background, instead of transparent color
Version 2 1 year ago
Major changes in this theme:
- lighter theme, with rounded buttons
- transparent sidebar with bolded text-elements (just like mac-osx-finder)
- elevated and rounded buttons
- exclusion of original unfocused window theming: only title-buttons are greyed out
- overall fine-tuning
