Linux Stuff
Symptom7.tar.gz Symptom7 - a Macintosh System 7 theme for XFCE4/GTK3. Tested on Linux Mint 20.3. Created this to be as pixel perfect as possible. This is the color monitor version, instead of the 1 bit b&w version. There is also a 24px tall titlebar version included, to help your eyes out a bit :)
SevenIcons.tar.gz SevenIcons - a Macintosh System 7 icons theme for Linux. Fork of NineIcons by grassmunk. Replaced as much as I could so far to not have 3d OS8/9 icons in the set. Looks good with the Symptom7 theme.
PlatiNomNom_v1.4.tar.gz Mac OS Platinum (OS 8/9) theme for XFCE / WFWM4. I originally created this in 2012 on a Asus EEE 900. Updated 7/2/22 to allow titlebar button rearragning.
Mac-OS-9-Platinum-MB.tar.gz Modified Elbullazul's GTK3 theme for XFCE use, had some GTK issues if the apps used the newer tall titlebars. Includes my PlatiNomNom theme in this archive for a single download.
Grab the 7.5.3 or 8/9 desktop patterns below to make the desktop authentic :)
