MacBuntu (Macbuntu Sierra/El Capitan/Yosemite) transformation pack is ready for Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark, it took a while for us to give you this flavor for your 17.10 desktop. This time we are only supporting Gtk themes for Gnome (Gnome Shell), Xfce and Mate desktops but you may use themes in other desktops such as cinnamon etc. First of all we would like to thank Jared for helping us with this pack, our main themes Macbuntu which is for Gnome and other desktops, Macbuntu-Unity is for Unity desktop. There are now dark versions of Mac themes in this pack, for those who don't like to use traditional Mac color. Two cursors themes are included with this page, and some plank themes are from KenHarkey and erikdubois. Additionally there are two themes for Gnome Shell, two for Cinnamon, and two icon packs.

We have dropped so many things for this pack such as boot screen, login screen and etc. Because there are issues with them and we don't want you to mess up your working OS. Slingscold which is known as launchpad, it does work on some desktops but since there is no development going on you may experience issue with it and it may don't work for some users and you may see blank launcher. Plank dock may not work in Gnome environment but can be used in other desktops. By following these instructions you can change look of your Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark to look like Mac OS X.
Note: If you encounter any bug in theme/icons/any stuff, report to us with screenshot or problem with details.
