Basic Theming

Before anything else, if you want your desktop to look like a Mac’s, you’ll need to install the right themes. A Linux theme called macOS Sierra does exactly that. To download it, enter these lines into your terminal:

mkdir $HOME/.themes

You may already have a .themes folder (you’ll know if the terminal puts out an error). If that’s the case, just skip this command. Next:

cd $HOME/.themes
wget https://github.com/B00merang-Project/macOS-Sierra/archive/master.zip

Make sure to place it in the .themes folder!

The Gnome Yosemite icon theme closely matches the macOS appearance. Like application themes, the way to adjust them varies between desktops. The terminal commands below just focus on installing it:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install numix-icon-theme-circle

This theme is based off the Numix Circle icon theme, so the commands above install it first.

sudo sh -c "curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Foggalong/hardcode-fixer/master/fix.sh | bash"
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ActusOS/GnomeYosemiteIcons/master/download_from_github.sh | sh

The second command downloads a script that automatically installs and sets Gnome Yosemite as your icon theme.

sudo apt-get install curl The Plank Dock

Apart from the Unity desktop, the other guides will assume you have Plank . It’s a taskbar that integrates well with the Linux macOS theme. To install it, type this command in to your terminal:

sudo apt-get install plank

After this, launch the dock by entering the ALT+F2 shortcut , and typing in plank preferences .

Regardless of your desktop, this should start up Plank, along with its configuration window. In the Appearance section, change the Theme to Gtk+ . This will make the dock look like the one in macOS once you make some adjustments later on.

If you want to hide that anchor icon, you’ll need to change a hidden setting. To do this, enter this command into your terminal:

gsettings set net.launchpad.plank.dock.settings:/net/launchpad/plank/docks/dock1/ show-dock-item false Make Unity Look Like macOS

As you can see, Unity already has a dock and a menu bar by default. All you need to do is make some visual adjustments. This is easily achieved using the Unity Tweak Tool, which allows you to change some hidden desktop options. Install it with this terminal command:

sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool

Having installed it, open up the tool by searching for it in the Unity menu. Then go to Launcher > Appearance > Position . You’ll see that the application dock has two changeable positions: one on the left (by default), and one on the bottom (like macOS). You’ll want to select the Bottom position.

Final Touches

In the Unity Tweak Tool, return to the Overview menu. From there, go into the Theme entry located under the Appearance category. From there, select the Macos-sierra-master theme. Your applications should now have a very Mac-like feel to them.

The theme also comes with a nice wallpaper. To get to it, first hit Ctrl + L in the file manager. This allows you to enter in a location:

/home/USER/.themes/macOS-Sierra-master/

Here you’ll find an image named Wallpaper.jpg . Setting it up is easy using Unity’s file manager ― all you have to do is right click on an image, and select the Set as Wallpaper option.

By default, Unity’s menu-bar only shows options when you hover your mouse over it. To make it behave like macOS, open your System Settings app, then go to Personal > Appearance > Behaviour > Menu visibility . Select the always displayed option underneath it.

GNOME

These eight extensions help you do just that! Read More , so it makes sense that both desktops are very similar to each other. As such, there’s not much you need to change.

The Dock

If you followed the instructions at the beginning of the article, you should now have a dock. However, to keep using it on reboot, you’ll need to add it to your startup applications. The easiest way to do this is through the GNOME Tweak Tool . Install it with this command:

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

Open up the program by typing in gnome-tweak-tool to the terminal. Alternately, you can just search for the program in your activities menu. Navigate to the Startup Applications entry. From there, just add Plank. If it’s already running, you won’t have to search for it ― it’ll be right at the top.

Both your application windows and the Plank dock should change in appearance. As a final touch, change your wallpaper by heading to the Desktop section in the Tweak Tool. In there, click on the Background Location button.

You’ll be presented with a way of choosing a new wallpaper. A Mac-like one is located with your theme (named Wallpaper.jpg ), so navigate to it at ~/.themes/macOS-Sierra-master . You might have to show hidden files to see this folder. If that’s the case, right click in the file selection window, and click the Show Hidden Files entry.

Plasma

With the release of Plasma 5.9, it’s possible to make KDE’s signature desktop very much like a Mac. Unfortunately, because of how new it is, many Linux operating systems won’t ship it yet.

KDE’s offering prides itself on its power and flexibility. As such, it can match macOS in appearance a little more than GNOME can. However, it’ll take a bit more work.

Plasma’s Menu Bar

As of Plasma 5.9, you can now have a global menu just like macOS. To start off, right-click on your desktop, and select Add Panel > Application Menu Bar . You’ll get a blank panel at the top of your screen. Click on the hazard sign inside it. This will open up a settings window that will let you change how application menu bars are displayed.


Make Linux Look Like macOS With These Easy Tweaks

Go to Fine Tuning > Menubar style > Application Menu widget . Once you’ve applied this setting, the hazard sign should go away, and application menus should show up on top. For some reason, while the menu bar was visible in Firefox, it wasn’t functional. Your mileage may vary!

Once you’re done with this, fill the panel with some suitable widgets, by right-clicking on it, and selecting the Add Widgets option. I suggest using similar widgets to the bottom panel. After all this, remove the bottom panel by clicking on the hamburger menu and selecting More Settings > Remove Panel .

Starting Plank Automatically

In your System Settings, go to Workspace > Startup and Shutdown > Autostart > Add Program . You should be able to find Plank located under Utilities. This stops you from manually starting the dock every time you log in to your desktop.

Adjusting Appearance

Interestingly, Plasma puts its icon themes in a different location.Because of this, you’ll need to move your macOS icon theme folder elsewhere. Use these terminal commands to do this:

cd $HOME/.icons
cp -r GnomeYosemiteIcons-master/ ../.local/share/icons

Now, when you open up your system settings, and go to Appearance > Icons , you should be able to select Yosemite Icons as a theme.
