For this sesion we will use Zukimac theme.

First, downlod ZUKIMAC from HERE

Extract the downloaded zipped file. You will find two directories in there, Zukimac and Zukimac-ml. Copy these to .themes directory in your home directory. Go to Home and press Ctrl+H to show all the hidden folders. If there is no .themes folder here, create one.

Use Unity Tweak Tool to change the theme.

Zukimac gives some a basic look and feel of Mac OS.
