Hope the following things work on the next LTS version “18.04”.
# 1. Install packges. From:# https://askubuntu.com/questions/545741/why-is-shell-theme-disabled-in-gnome-tweak-tool# http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/10/install-vanilla-gnome-shell-ubuntu-17-10# "gnome-tweak-tool" is the tweak tool, "gnome-shell-extensions"# is the required component to set configuration in the tweak# tool, "gnome-session" makes it possible to login pure GNOME. # Note that after Installing "gnome-shell-extensions", restart# OS may be needed to do further configuration in "GNOME Tweak# Tool".sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool gnome-shell-extensions gnome-session
# 2. Enable the following option to make GNOME look for shell# themes from user directory:# GNOME Tweak Tool -> Extensions -> User themes
The finally used theme components(GNOME Tweak Tool -> Appearance -> Themes) are:
The following content describes how to install them.
Application(GTK theme): “Gnome OSX-IV-1.1”
The “Gnome OSX-IV-1.1” GTK theme can be found from here. Download the ”tar” file and extract it to the “~/.themes” directory as “Gnome OSX-IV-1.1”, then select the “Gnome OSX-IV-1.1” item in “GNOME-Tweak-Tool -> Appearance -> Themes -> Application”.
# Run the following commands to install the "Capitaine Cursors".git clone https://github.com/keeferrourke/capitaine-cursors.git
cp -pr dist/ ~/.icons/capitaine-cursors
# After run the above commands, select "apitaine-cursors" in# "GNOME Tweak Tool -> Appearance -> Cursors".
The “La-capitaine-icon-theme” cursor theme can be found from here. Download the ”tar file and extract it to the “~/.icons” directory as “La-capitaine-icon-theme”, then select the “La-capitaine-icon-theme” item in “GNOME-Tweak-Tool -> Appearance -> Themes -> Cursor”.
Download the ”Maxim” shell theme package from here. Then install the downloaded package file in “GNOME-Tweak-Tool -> Appearance -> Themes -> Shell”. After installation succeeds, select the “Maxim” item in “GNOME-Tweak-Tool -> Appearance -> Themes -> Shell”.
I use ”simple-dock” instead of ”Docky” since I found “Docky” crashed several times on my Ubuntu 17.10 environment, so I use “simple-dock” as alternative which works well. From here and here.
Download La Capitaine Icon Set on Github. In my case, I download ”la-capitaine-icon-theme-0.4.0.tar.gz”. Extract the tar file and copy the extracted directory into your “~/.icons” directory. If “~/.icons” doesn’t exist, create it first. From here.
# After run the following commands, select "Papirus" in# "GNOME Tweak Tool -> Appearance -> Icons"sudo add-apt-repository ppa:papirus/papirus
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install papirus-icon-theme
GTK theme(Application): “OS.X.El.Capitan”
I download ”OS.X.El.Capitan.v0.9.tar.gz”. Extract the tar file and copy the extracted directory into your “~/.themes” directory. If “~/.themes” doesn’t exist, create it first. From here.
