Made by paulxfce (alias Manjarocinnamonfan, paulubuntu)


This is a first iteration of the XFCE-cation of my well received McOS-MJV-Dark theme, a gnome-desktop-interpretation of a certain Cupertino-based OS.
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 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:

Thunar 18.0 or above is required.

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-Dark-Edition'
To make the titlebar: open up the Window Manager and select again 'McOS-XFCE-Dark-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:

The icon-theme is not included. It is Cupertino Icons

The wallpaper used can be found here

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.

After running it for a day I have to say this is one hell of a theme. Probably one of the most complete themes I have ever used. Even got crappy mousepad looking great and it does not hurt my performance unlike some themes that I have used with plenty of colors. Just all around really nice. I use the numix-circle icons and use the script to change the folder color to blue and looks awesome. Can't say thanks enough.

I know this is from the author of Arrongin and Telinkrin so I will finally get to ask please make a Xfce edition of Arrongin and Telinkrin themes. Your themes are nice but this is the only one I have ever gotten to enjoy because I use Xce. Two thumbs up for this one though.

Telinkrin is a theme specifically for gnome, because nautilus is easier to change. Thunar is not. Telinkrin 's stronghold is the way nautilus is themed. This I can not reproduce on thunar. Maybe in the future, when the transition of XFCE to GTK3 is complete, I may reconsider.
