We have previously seen a MAC OS X Lion GTK+ theme for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot. In this guide we will see another GTK+ theme for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot. This theme is called Adwaita Cupertino, which will make Ubuntu look like Mac OS X. We will help you step by step until you install this theme on your system.

Adwaita Cupertino Installation

Under Ubuntu 11.10, open the terminal and run this sequence of commands to install Adwaita Cupertino:

cd /tmp

wget -O Adwaita-Cupertino.zip http://goo.gl/Y3vnS

mkdir ~/.themes

unzip Adwaita-Cupertino.zip -d ~/.themes

To enable the theme, use this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'Adwaita Cupertino L'

To enable the window theme for Adwaita Cupertino, use this command:

gconftool-2 --set --type string /apps/metacity/general/theme 'Adwaita Cupertino L'

The Adwaita Cupertino theme can look awesome with Faenza icon theme, you can find here a tutorial explaining how to install it on Ubuntu 11.10.

[NOTE]: You can also use GNOME Tweak Tool to enable this theme.
