Windows 10 Transformation Pack. If you just migrate from Windows to Linux Mint 19, you will. May 14, 2020 Download MacOS-Mint-Cinnamon-Edition Theme To install, extract the archive file to the hidden ‘.themes’ folder in your Home folder (if you don’t have one, create one). Finally, to apply the theme, Open System Settings Appearance Themes and select the theme in both the window-borders and controls section.
Hello friends, the new Linux Mint version 20 just came out. In this article, I will show you how to customize it to look like the Mac OS.
So let’s go first I will download the theme for the Mint desktop. I’ll download the dark theme and the light theme.
The links will stay in this post. After I have downloaded the compressed files in my download folder I will unzip them right here.
I will delete these compressed files so they don’t bother me.
Now I’m going to copy them. Go to my HOME. Use the Ctrl + H shortcut to see hidden files. Then enter the folder, themes, and paste the folders there.
Now let’s get into the system settings. Then Themes. I will select the borders of the window with the Mojave-light theme. NO, the icons do not come with this theme, we will change the icons later. Switch controls to Mojave-light. And global theme too.
Now let’s move this panel upwards. With the panel edit mode activated, we will decrease the panel height.
Now in the settings, let’s move the buttons to the left side.
Open the terminal, let’s install a dock.
$ Sudo apt install plank – It is a lightweight dock. I’m going to start Plank.
It wasn’t supposed to appear like this, I was testing it and forgot to undo the settings. Let’s take the opportunity to remove these icons from up here.
To configure Plank click Ctrl + right-click, then preferences. Configure as you like. My Plank theme is already installed but it doesn’t matter, I’ll show you how to install it.
Download the Catalinas theme for Plank. I will download the latter, but you can test others as well. Let’s copy the already unzipped folder. local share plank themes Paste here.
To add an icon to the dock, first, open something, then right-click on the program icon and check the box, Keep in Dock.
To remove from the dock, just pull it out. Organize however you want. It doesn’t work that way!
Now let’s open the terminal again and install the synapse. Synapse is a really cool fast launcher, similar to Apple’s. Once installed, the Shortcut, Ctrl + Space is the default shortcut to open it, but you can change to the shortcut you want, as long as it does not conflict with other shortcuts. Click to start with the system.
I don’t really like that part, but if you want, you can exchange the Linux mint logo for the apple logo. So, let’s go. Search for the Apple logo on the internet preferably .png with transparency, otherwise, it will not be cool. We will add a separator before the menu so that it is not so glued to the corner. What f* it’s so hard to move.
Search, and save some Mac OS wallpaper on the internet so you can set it as a background.
Now let’s download and install Cupertino Icons for our Linux. After downloaded and unzipped we will copy to .icons and paste here. You can also change everything to the dark theme if you want.
We just need to change the cursor now. You can’t leave the Linux Mint with the Cinamon desktop environment exactly like Mac OS It is not as customizable as some Linux distro that uses KDE as a desktop environment for example.
But if you know a few more tricks to customize or make the usability of the mint better.
Leave it in the comments.
If you’re looking for a Mac theme for Linux, look no further.
GNOME-OSX II is (as you might have already guessed) a Mac GTK theme for Linux desktops — and it’s a pretty pretty adaptation.
‘This theme is a ‘gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OS X”
Yup, this is not an out-and-out copy of the standard UI in macOS. The theme describes itself as “a gnome-desktop-interpretation of Mac OS X”, with the theme designer saying they’ve “tried to implement the feel of OS X on the gnome-applications.”
This means the theme it’s not trying to be a pixel-perfect clone of the macOS theme — and there are plenty of GTK themes that try to do that out there — but instead adapts the core design of Cupertino’s desktop OS in a way that makes sense (and looks best) on the GNOME desktop.
The GNOME-OSX II theme works with most modern GNOME-based desktops, including GNOME Shell, GNOME Flashback, and Budgie. But the theme does not work with the Unity desktop.
Aside from evoking the form and function of macOS there are some novel touches too, such as the use of a blurred sidebar in the Nautilus file manager, and consistent theming across GTK2 and GTK3 apps.
A compataible GNOME Shell theme is also available to download for those wanting even more mac-inspired bling for their desktops.
Debate about the merits (or otherwise) of theming a Linux desktop to look like another operating system arises every time a theme like this is presented.
The terse answer is, if you can’t understand the appeal, sense or logic in doing it: don’t.
Whether you have Apple envy or simply admire and appreciate the design aesthetic of a macOS, there’s no shame if you decide to make Ubuntu look like Mac. The whole point of using Linux is (after all) that you can do things like this — you certainly can’t make Mac OS X look like Ubuntu!
The GNOME OS X II theme requires GNOME 3.20 or later. To use it on Ubuntu you need to be running Ubuntu 16.10 or above.
Once the download is complete you need to extract the tarball to your
Finally, to switch theme on you need to use the GNOME Tweak Tool, which is available to install from Ubuntu Software.
For a more faithful mac-ification try the La Capitaine Mac icon theme for Linux, also available as a free download from GNOME-Look.
