OSX-Tiger theme

GTK2 Themes

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.

I understand it can be bit confusing, but if I would go in details the article would be away too long and it's very boring to write such a detailed text. But I hope you manage to achieve what you want.

When I used the evolution-alarm-notify, it will pop-up a small banner in the bottom right of the monitor besides a big dialog in the center of the screen. This things went fine with other theme. But whenever I put on this theme, my gnome will crash as soon as the pop up is shown and I am kicked out into an GDM screen, all unsaved data in opened app is lost, this is a kind of very serious problem, do you have any idea?

It 's kind of weird but that banner don't contain any widgets inside.
I have a screenshot here : http://www.imagehosting.com/show.php/511131_crash.png.html
As you can see, in the bottom right corner is a small banner. Gnome as well as XFCe crash as soon as this banner show up when using this theme.
I am using Fedora Core 5 and evolution 2.6.0

I hope you can fix this problem, then this theme could be the best mac alike theme around

Ok, this sound very bad. I don't use Evolution myself, so that's why I haven't noticed this kind of behavior. Can you say what kind of widgets is used in this element that crashes the system? I mean, is there buttons, tabs, comboboxes, etc? This would help me to find the problem.

Hi,
I'm new to linux and using Ubuntu 6.06. Tried to install this theme by installing GTK2. Now my desktop is kind of screwed up like only 2 workspaces, missing add/remove programs, and other problems. How can I restore my system to original gnome and re-install this theme?

I tried "rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity" but doesn't fix it.

Please help.

Thanks!

Oh, you didn't really have to install GTK2.What you need is already installed. Since your installation is messed up you should just re-install it. There's also a new version of Ubuntu: 7.04, it's better. I'm using it now.
One thing i've noticed w/ linux is it's pretty easy to mess up your system with bad installations, (especially with newbs) so back up often.

Welcome to the Linux community :)
Just forget about the foreposters comment.. of course you can use this theme in XFCE :)

You have to unpack it into the .themes (don't forget the dot in front of it) folder under your home-directory (like /home/insertusername/.themes). You can do this with thunar-archiver or even file-roller, if installed.

Then open the XFCE controlcenter either via menu or by pressing ALT + F2 and typing xfce-setting-show
In "User Interface Settings" navigate to OSX-theme and apply.
Have fun :)

Hi lauri, thanks for your reply.

The DreamAccurateTiger window border seems a pure beryl based theme. Is there any pure gnome/GTK window border? (Anyway I found some in gnome-look but not as good as your screenshot shows.)

The TAB, I mean, when pressing the <TAB> key, other UI components will get focus. For example, when the checkbox get focus, a thin-dotted-line border will be over the checkbox; when the textbox get focus, a blue line will be around the component. What is not doing well in the theme is when the button get focus, there is no very clear difference among other buttons. If this could be fixed(no need to be complicated, may be just thin-dotted-border is fine), it would be more useful.

I am really appreciated your work, again.

Oh...ok. Now I see what you meant by this tab thing and you're right. It's not easy to navigate with keyboard, becuase there is no visual effect when button has focus. I see what I can do to make this better.

Well as this is a Gnome/GTK theme, I don't think it could be applied to the XFCE desktop environment. You may need to install gnome/gtk or have another gnome compatible linux distro.

Very nice!

Not only the theme - but the great guide too!

A sub-section for how to patch gtk, or a more detailed installation guide for the macmenubar-applet would be a nice addition though. The guy who used to maintain the applet, doesn't anymore. That's why a how to about patching and compiling would be nice, someone else might take on the task of maintaining the package - if they just know how.

Thanks! Hyvää työtä!

Yeah, the macmenu can be confusing to install. Too bad, that it's not supported anymore by AqD, becuase it's a nice addition to Gnome although it's not perfect.

We'll see if I write this section in more detail in future. Now, I don't have time for that. Sorry :(

You need to download the package, drag it on gnome-theme-manager and select the theme. If it doesn't look right. Run "sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pifbuf" and try again.

It's really cool! Thanks for your work.

A couple of questions:

1 when using TAB to switch focus on different components, textfields are fine, but buttons cannot distinguished very easily

2 Could you tell us where is the window border?

Window border is called DreamAccurateTiger. You can get it at Beryl website: http://themes.beryl-project.org/theme_details.php?id=31

I'm not sure do I understand your comment about tabs. Could you be more specific? I know that tabs are not very OSX like, but it's hard to achive the real thing with GTK.
