In this tutorial we are going to help you install the GTK3 Mac OS X Lion theme for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot or Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin. This will make Ubuntu look like the new Mac OS X Lion OS. This theme is created by MBOSSG at deviantART.

A- Mac OS X Lion Theme Installation

1. Installing Cursors

Open the terminal and run these commands:

wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/47950494/Mac-Lion-Cursors.tar.gz


sudo tar -xzvf Mac-Lion-Cursors.tar.gz -C /usr/share/icons

2. Downloading The Theme

[Note]: If you have already a ".themes" folder at your home directory, then skip the fisrt command.

Run these commands:

mkdir ~/.themes
