Ubuntu – Adding a mac-like theme/skin to Ubuntu


I am very fond of macbooks so I wanted to revamp my Ubuntu to look like a mac desktop.

Please suggest a suitable theme/skin with minimum bugs.

  • You can make your Ubuntu look exactly like OS X.

    Some screenshots:

    Just add the Macbuntu PPA

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/macbuntu
    sudo apt-get update

    and install the following packages.

    • For themes, icons and cursors

      sudo apt-get install macbuntu-os-icons-lts-v7 macbuntu-os-ithemes-lts-v7
    • To install Slingscold Launcher

      sudo apt-get install slingscold
    • For Spotlight

      sudo apt-get install albert
    • For Plank dock

      sudo apt-get install plank macbuntu-os-plank-theme-lts-v7

    Finally install some tweak tools to select mac theme:

    sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool gnome-tweak-tool

    And for final touch install these mac wallpapers.
