Linux and macOS, both the systems are outstanding and amazing in their respective arena for accomplishing the task. The overall look and feel of a Mac system are really praiseworthy and eye-catching. There are many users who really like the appearance of MacOS but want to remain stick with the Linux system. For those users, Today, I am going to share a Theme that will make your system looks like Mac OSX Yosemite. Yosemite Gtk Theme is one of the best MacOS Theme for Ubuntu available out there for Ubuntu and other Linux derivatives.
Yosemite Gtk Theme is a Mac OSX like the theme for GTK 3, GTK 2, and Gnome-Shell, which supports GTK 3 and GTK 2 based desktop environments like Gnome, Pantheon, XFCE, Mate, etc.
This gtk theme is based on the popular Arc Gtk Theme, a flat modern design element and a friendly user interface with intuitive animation effects.
