Description:

GN-OSX H.Sierra NT 1.2.1
Update: Resolved the blue-entrybar issue in the WEB-browser (epiphany)/ bugfixes
Update: Now with a new version (Gn-OSX-H.Sierra-NT-1.2-S) with bigger shadows underneath the windows (see last screenshot)
(shadows in 1.1-BS were to big..., now less shadow )
This is the same theme as Gn-OSX H.Sierra, only transparency is disabled in the sidebar !

Made by paulxfce

After building Gnome-OSX, now a brand new theme based on the latest Mac OS
This is a gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OSX High Sierra. So don't expect a replica.

Again, I've spend an obscene amount of time perfecting this theme, so please try it out before you rate it...

What new?

In sort: everything.

The long version for the geeks:

- a totally rewritten GTK3.CSS
- removal of png's for SVG's (better at scaling)
- new buttons everywhere.
- Switch-button is now CSS-written, so no need for graphics.
- New and improved blurred sidebar in nautilus.
- Same theming across GTK2 and GTK3.

Requirements

First, This theme only works in the gnome-desktop, with GTK 3.20 -> 3.24

Second, essential in this theme is the use of the font: Freesans Regular, 11pt, Scaling factor 1,00. Why? Because buttons behave weird if you don't...

Next, buttons should be on the left side. Here is the terminal-code:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout "close,minimize,maximize:"
In case you would want to revert them back to the right:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"

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)
gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)


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-theme.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take full effect !

Comming soon:

The smart ones may have noticed that their is no shell theme available.
Well that is my next project. So stay tuned...
In the main time, there is still the shell theme of my Gnome OSX-theme.

Hi dude, been a long time since my last comment... :) Just wanna tell you that after checking logs for theme errors, I noticed one in the gtk.css file on line 4699 : one extra bracket ;)
Other than that, keep doing what you, you've built the best MacOS theme for linux I've ever seen here.

Congrats and best regards.

"Gnome-OSX 2.6", "Gn-OSX H.Sierra NT" and "Gn-OSX H.Sierra" are the best mac osx gnome-desktop-interpretation... great job on this themes :) ... now about this one it has a color "bug" in nautilus side-menu. initial state in shows #e7eaee them when cursor goes over it goes #cbc1c1 then when cursor is not over it goes #e0d5d5 (it should go back to #e0e3e8)... I get this color codes from gimp and a printscreen. Overall its a awesome theme.

what are the chances of making this compatible with Ubuntu 17.04 and its $#%^@!! QT 5.7 that no longer respects GTK2 themes?

Hi dude,
Really nice new themes, both of them (H.Sierra) and once again good job!
Even the window shadowing is a great idea, I find is useful when one have a little window over a maximized other one, it helps improving visibility... But one request, could you shrink a little bit the shadow, it looks like a little bit too big, but of course this is my personal point of view.
Best regards.

1.2-S has less shadows, thanks for pointing this out.

Yeah, I just tested it and it looks really good now! But an idea came to my mind : is there any possibility to blur the background instead of shadowing the window, like in the case I mentioned above when we have a not maximized window over a maximized one, then the background would be a little bit blurred. Only a suggestion, but maybe doing could also overload the theme I don't know...

There's a gnome extension that does something simular:

This extension seems to not be anymore available neither maintained for a couple of years, last update was 6 years ago. Nevermind, it was just an idea.
