In this tutorial, we will help users of Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin to install the Mac OS X Lion theme along with Mac icons and cursors. We have also included a number of Mac OS X Lion wallpapers so that you can use them on your desktop. To make the installation easier, we have created a pack containing all theme files and folders and uploaded it to our custom PPA.
Lion Pack Installation
Open the terminal and install and enable Lion Pack with these commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/themes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lion-pack
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'lion-theme'
gconftool-2 --set --type string /apps/metacity/general/theme 'lion-theme'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme 'mac-icons'
To enable the Mac cursors, open Gnome Tweak Tool from the Unity dash and go to the Theme tab and select:
Cursor theme > macosx-cursors
Additionally, to use a dock similar to that of Mac OS X, we have included the AWN (Avant Window Navigator) in the Lion Pack. You can start AWN from the Unity dash:
Right click now the awn icon and select Dock Preferences:
In the window that appears, select these options to make the dock look like the Mac OS X dock:
Behavior: Panel mode
When you finish, click Close. For Mac OS X Lion wallpapers, you can download this archive file from here.
