Transform your Gnome into MacOS, Windows or Unity with this script

Gnome looking like MacOS

The return of Ubuntu to Gnome has made many users reuse this desktop and actively work on it again. As a result of this, a very curious script has come out, but it will be very popular.

East script allows us to transform our Gnome Shell into Unity, Mac OS or Windows. But it will not be a total transformation but it will be an aesthetic transformation, but enough for the most novice users to get used to Gnu / Linux.

This script is compatible with distributions that are based on Debian and Ubuntu, but possibly with necessary modifications, the script will work on other distributions as well. In any case, this customization tool can be found at a Github repository.

This script is a great customization tool for novice users

Once we have downloaded this script, we have to give read and write permissions so that it can work and we can execute it. This is done through the terminal by typing the following:

chmod +x

Now if we want to use the script to look like macOS, we have to write the following:

./ --macosx

If we want to use the script for windows look:

./ --windows

And if, for whatever, we want to look like Unity, we have to execute the following aspect in the terminal:

./ --unity

Before executing any of these versions of the script, we must make a nearly exact copy of the gnome config files. This is done since there is no going back and if we want to do it, we have to crush the configuration with the backup files that we have made. It is the only method that exists, but I highly doubt that it is necessary because both the Unity interface and the MacOS interface and the Windows interface are three quite manageable environments for users.
