I'm new to Fedora, (coming from OSX and as of late, Windows 10) I'm loving Fedora, but I would like to customize the look a little more. I've installed SanFrancisco Font. I would like to know how to tweak it out and change icons and themes to look more like OSX. Is this possible?? If so please tell me how.

Thanks a Ton,

Check out


Gnome Look has what you want, you just have to find it. Gnome Tweak Tool (sudo dnf install gnome-tweak-tool) will be handy to install and manage extensions and themes.

Download the archives from there and extract them to ~/.themes , that is /home/youruser/themes. If you are not used to hidden files and folders (those that start with a dot), and if you are using nautilus, hit CTRL+h show display them. In a terminal add a -a flag to display all, including the hidden ones.

Gnome Tweak Tool is useful to apply new themes...
