New additional theme: Gnome-OSX with No Transparent sidebar (NT)
New update 16/12/2017

New Update: 11/2/2017
New Update 9/2/2017
UPDATE: completely new version.
This is a gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OSX. I've tried to implement the feel of OSX on the gnome-applications.
Initially based on the Arc-theme-files.
I've spend a great deal of time and effort on this theme into fine-tuning it, so I hope you try before you judge !
- Nautilus with blurred sidebar.
- Same theming across GTK2 and GTK3. (See screenshots)
Seperate download for Shell-themes:
- Shell theme with white dock and slighty dark top-bar
- Shell theme with dark dock and dark top-bar
This theme is developed on Ubuntu-gnome 16.10 , so I can only vouch for this setup. It is therefore only useable on a gnome-desktop 3.20+
No support for other desktops.
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)
How to install:
Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory. Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK and shell theme.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take effect !
To put the buttons to the left open a terminal:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout "close,minimize,maximize:"
About the screenshots:
- font used is FREESANS.
-First screenshot shows examples of the themed applications.
-Second and third screenshot shows the shell-themes. The dock is 'simple-dock', a gnome shell-extension to permanently show the dash.

Thanks Gelonek for finding the bug. I appreciate the feedback!
Added a theme-version with no transparent sidebar (NT) 10 days ago
At request: a version with no transparency set for the nautilus sidebar.
Window resize area reduced 12 days 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 13 days 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 15 days 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 19 days ago
New Side-bar solution: using blurred background, instead of transparent color
Version 2 20 days 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
