And when considering Unity's application dock, windows title buttons to the left-side, wallpaper etc and even Mark Shuttleworth said when asked whether he'd prefer iPhone over Android phones, he said, "Yes!"... so Natty Narwhal is also much closer to OSX.
In that sense if you want to make your GNU/Linux Laptop completely looks like a Mac OSX, then all you gotta do at this point is to install a theme!. Well then you might be interested in a GTK written theme for Gnome called gekosMac.
As you can see with below screenshot, in resembles Leopard and the creator advices you to install Nautilus elementary + the Faenza Mac icon theme after installing the main gekosMac GTK theme as well. Lets install the theme in 11.04 Natty Narwhal first.
1. Open your Terminal and enter the below command.
sudo apt-get install aurora2. Use the below command to install Nautilus Elementary (remember, this is not necessary, but Elementary looks more like the OSX fm).
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-aurora
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:am-monkeyd/nautilus-elementary-ppaalso make sure to restart Nautilus. To do that, use the below command.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
nautilus -q3. Now the final part. Lets install the FaenzaMac icon theme. Use the below command for that.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme
If you don't like the buttons on the panel, then the developer advices that you do the following (quoting himself)...
#######IF YOU USE UNITY#########
Look at buttons in panel. You do not like this. You can fix that!!!!
0) All that is written to it except 4 step
1)You need to open terminal and write command
2)than go to /usr/share/themes
3) Backup Ambiance(copy to some place or add to archive)
4)extract Ambiance.tar.gz that you download
5)Replace folder that you extract from archive (delete Ambiance at /usr/share/themes and copy extract Ambiance theme to them)
THAT ALL Then Logot and login :)
That's it. Now you've successfully converted your Unity (also works on LinuxMint as well) to Mac OSX!. Enjoy.
