"Files" "Epiphany browser" "Terminal" "Mail" .. Get the idea ? Right, lets get to it. Start by adding Pantheon to your repo - for this our friends over at linuxconfig. org have the solution (https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-the-pantheon-desktop-on-debian)Open a terminal and download the deb file.. wget https://gandalfn.ovh/debian/pool/main/p/pantheon-debian-repos/pantheon-debian-repos_0.4-0+pantheon+stretch+loki1_all.debInstall it... sudo dpkg -i pantheon-debian-repos_0.4-0+pantheon+stretch+loki1_all.debUpdate package tree... sudo apt updateNow lets install some applications.... sudo apt install pantheon-photos pantheon-terminal pantheon-files epiphany-browser (there is plenty more to choose from, but lets start with that) .. right, so now you got the apps.. but they dont quite look "good" .. do they.. lets fix that by adding ARC theme - For that we will get some help from (https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3AHorst3180&package=arc-theme) Lets install it... sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Horst3180/xUbuntu_16.04/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/home:Horst3180.list" wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:Horst3180/xUbuntu_16.04/Release.key -O Release.key; sudo apt-key add - < Release.key; sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install arc-themeSo.. now the theme is installed and we will use "gnome-tweak-tool" to change the theme, start by installing it... sudo apt install gnome-tweak-tool and run it by typing "gnome-tweak-tool" (or gnome-tweaks) in a terminal... .. and finally.. since we a MacOS site.. lets spice it with some nice MacOS icons from (https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1102582/) - instructions is on the page... .. and there you have it...
