OSX-Tiger theme

GTK2 Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net

6 .3
Description:

This is my very first GTK-theme. It tries to imitate OSX Tiger operating system's Aqua theme. There are some differences, because GTK sets some limits what you can do and what not.

Theme uses some graphics from Glossy P theme.

This theme uses pixbuf engine so in Ubuntu you'll need to install gtk2-engines-pixbuf package.

I have written more about OSX imitating on my website www.taimila.com.

How did you change the icons in the upper right-hand corner (the black ones on the bar)? Thanks!

I created my own icon theme that contains those icons. Unfortunately I can't publish it since I don't have copyrights. Wireless, Volume and Battery icons can be changed via icon theme. Pidgin, Liferea etc. needs some extra work. For example Liferea icons you can find at /usr/share/liferea/pixmaps. Just overwrite those icons with your own.

Thanks! Just one more thing, How do you make a Pidgin icon that changes like in OS X? Thanks!

This theme doesn't include window borders. There is many themes available on this site. In screenshots I use Emerald window manager with beryl. The theme is Dream's Accurate Tiger (or something like that).

could you tell me which font you're using in the terminal bar and everywhere else because for some reason I'm not getting that font after installing the theme. And yeah I'm new to linux (installed it for the first time yesterday), so any help on how to go about getting it would be appreciated.

I'm not sure why but I've been trying to find and install a Mac theme on Ubuntu 7.04 (laptop; HP Pavillion dv6119us), and whenever I install a Mac theme, it just uses the Clearlooks window border. Any advice? By the way, I couldn't get the NVIDIA drivers working if that matters.

You need to install pixbuf GTK-engine. In ubunu you can do this by giving a following command in terminal:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

I have the same problem - no osx'like toolbars.
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

says that I have installed current version of it.

In System -> Preferences -> Themes (sorry but I do not know if this is the same in english ver - I use polish), pressing button "My themes" , there are 4 tabs:
1. Elements (? - nevermind)
2. Colors
3. Toolbars
4. Icons

In 1'st and 4'th I have osx-mod (I installed icon pack with thayt name), but I cannot see something like that name in the 3'rd tab, WHY ?

How can I add/edit something at that place manually ?

Thank you for everything else, your job is wonderful.

Sorry, but no. I have collected icons all over the internet and I don't have permission (copyrights) to publish them.
