Description:

This is theme nearly looks like macOS lockscreen , with script which can set wallpaper for your desktop and simultaneously set same wallpaper on lock screen and login screen with blur effect like on macOS. In attachment you will find file ubuntu.css, where injected some changes, to make your login screen and lock screen looks more like mac OS.

ATTENTION: TESTED AND WORK ONLY ON UBUNTU 17.10 with GDM3 (xorg) and 18.04.xx LTS (ubuntu). (Any other OS based on Linux didn't tested!!!)
not work on few monitors ( Just don't have second monitor so i can't develop work version (-_-) Sorry )

Two versions:
stwperm - with no asking password to set wallpaper but script give full permission for root folder " /usr/share/backgrounds/ " by chmod 777 (not safety).
stwaskpass - with asking password each time you set wallpaper for change background of " lockscreen ", it is safe, but not comfortable for user.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

REQUIREMENTS:

1) Plank (https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/bionic/universe/base/plank)
Or
2) Dash to dock extension (tune it how you want to see the dock, turn it off and turn on Ubuntu Dock). This way tested work fine.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INSTRUCTION:

1. First of all you have to unpack archive then in folder ~/Downloads/your version/ click right button of mouse and chose "Open in Terminal", then type
sudo chmod +x install.sh (not necessary)
./install.sh

2. Now you just choose your image right click mouse button, you will see script and "SetAsWallpaper" just click on it, wallpaper already set.

3. And last step, you have to do it just once. At the desktop right click on screen select "Change Background" then "Lock Screen" and "Pictures", find there your blurred image and choose it. Just once!

Enjoy!

If you lost your backup file ubuntu.bak which necessary for uninstall "High Ubunterra"
Download this file:
NATIVE ubuntu.css https://mega.nz/#!pF5m3aQa!3CfZJumzk004vswpGa_5rcWXfOhGbQOE5ESsMuNlSlE
Terminal command sudo cp -i path to downloaded ubuntu.css /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/
---------------------------------------------------------------
Addition:

If your interface another language, "not English" and text inside buttons don't fit in, you have to insert little changes in ubuntu.css

1717# /*login size prompt input*/
1722# width: 190px; /* change width 190px to size what more or less will be close to
size of your text inside buttons. Just try change width! */

1591# /* Avatar Auth Dialogs & Screen Shield */
1594# margin: 0 0 0 60px; /* change margin 60px to centered your avatar */

usr,,, its only way to make avatar at the center of screen. Same issue on native GTM if your name will be really long. U can`t uninstall because your backup was rewritten by new version of "High Ubunterra" i guess so. So u need original ubuntu.css file.
Where i can to send it to u?

Hello! Sorry to bother you. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS using VirtualBox with guess additions.
I'm following your instructions. At the beginning there was an error "file not found" that was because in my language, Downloads folder had another name (Descargas) however, I changed the system language in order to run your script.
But after that, I don't find any image in the folder to set the wallpaper... tried both 1.7 and 1.6

+ Hello! Great theme, thank you! I have been using it since I installed 18.04 and it is very beautiful. However, one ubuntu update (for lenovo laptop x260) changed something, and now I cannot get back your beautiful lock screen (font has changed for the time, and login is back to some ubuntu style, a long rectangle). Do you know how I could fix it? Also, how can I update to your newest versions, just download them and install them on top of older versions? Again, thanks a lot for sharing your great work )))

Installing your new version resolved the issue, it seems the update changed some settings, and reinstalling your theme changed them back. Thanks !
