Mac OS X transformation pack is ready for Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy/Linux Mint 16. This transformation pack has been completed with collaboration of haniahmed (One Gnome Shell theme) and mbossg (One Gtk theme + two icon sets) both guys did really fine job. Mac themes for Linux are almost stopped but we kept this project on our list from 12.04, and now we release Mac transformation for every new Ubuntu release. Many people look over the internet for pre-configured Mac look like Macbuntu 13.10/Mac4lin, Mac Ubuntu theme and so on, but it is good idea to transform it by yourself because if you want to change to old/other look you can do that easily. This method of transformation doesn't use any excessive memory/CPU/and other resources.
This time NoobsLab is offering four Mac GTK themes, two Gnome Shell and one Cinnamon theme. Cinnamon theme isn't very close to Mac but it can give Mac feel to panel. This time we included three icon packs which are somewhat different from each other.
Note: If you encounter any bug in theme/icons/any stuff, Report us with screenshot or problem with details.
