Made by paulxfce (alias Manjarocinnamonfan, paulubuntu)


This is a second iteration of the XFCE-cation of my well received McOS-MJV-theme, a gnome-desktop-interpretation of a certain Cupertino-based OS. To be more true to the original, McOS-MJV-XFCE-Edition is flatter and uses lighter menu-backgrounds than my previous versions of McOS-XFCE. In edition 2.0 much has improved (such as blue arrows on comboboxes, and a generally smaller interface.)

It is a complex theme, because of the transition to GTK3, XFCE is undergoing changing allong the way, requiring GTK2 and GTK3 working properly together.
This theme is build upon- and made to work for Manjaro 17.1.12 and later. This requires a fairly recent XFCE-distro. It is meant to be used with the latest XFCE-development (XFCE 4.13), which has ported much of its components to GTK3.
Although it should work, other XFCE-distro's might have problems.


Important: READ THIS!


This theme only works properly with a compositor enabled!

More and more XFCE-distributions are adding the GTK3-classic/GTK3-mushrooms packages as default in the standard install. This package removes the headerbar-titlebuttons and move them up to an extra- titlebar. And also removes the way gnome draws its windows-shadows-menus. As a result the standard theme looks weird, rounded menu's become straight, ...
So, look into your software-manager and see if these packages are installed. if so then download the 'patched' version. If not? Then download the normal one.


Important:how to set up:

First the requirements needed:

There are now 4 versions available:

- McOS-MJV-Edition-2.0: Described above.
- McOS-MJV-Edition-1.0: the first version build to mimick the Mojave-desktop of MacOS(TM) and works only in a the newest setting: Thunar=>18.0, XFCE4-panel-GTK3-version. You can find it in the download-section. (It does also work with the XFCE4-panel in GTK2-version, but in Manjaro there are issues with the panel)

-McOS-XFCE-Edition-I and II: are the older versions: Edition I will work with Thunar below version 1.8, and works with XFCE4-panel GTK2.
-McOS-XFCE-Edition-II: is the continuation with a more new up-to-date-version that requires thunar 1.8 or above.

The standard XFWM-windowmanager is used as the compositor, With the following specific settings in the Window Manager Tweaks:
- display compositing enabled.
- Synchronize drawing to the vertical blank enabled.
- Show shadows under dock windows enabled.
Opacity of popup windows is set more to the left (more transparency): this gives the translucency under the drop down-menu's. You can move the layer more to the left for more transparency.

To install:

Download the file and extract. Move the extracted file to your '.themes'-folder in your home-folder (you might have to make the folder first, if you haven't done it already.)
Open up the Appearance-app and select the style 'McOS-XFCE-Edition' (or McOS-Edition II or McOS-MJV-XFCE-Edition respectively)
To make the titlebar: open up the Window Manager and select again 'McOS-XFCE-Edition', McOS-Edition-II or McOS MJV XFCE-Edition

To move the buttons to the left ( in Window Manager ) click and drag the button layout so that you have CLOSE/MINIMIZE/MAXIMIZE and TITLE (in that order).

On the screenshot:

You will notice that Whisker Menu is themed also.
The icon-theme is not included. It is Cupertino Icons

Furthermore: the font just in the screenshot is Ubuntu Regular 10pt in a custom DPI-setting of "100", hinting is slight
Under settings in the Appearance-app, images on menu's and buttons are disabled.

The bottom plank is "plank", the dock used in the screenshot, with a custom background mac-like-dock theme by Mahdi Mohammad Shibli.

Mojave and MacOS ared trademarkes by apple.inc.

I can't configure like that picture, the top bar (menu) doesn't apply the changes; so my Mac style is poor and ugly :(
