if I understand correctly, you like gnome, but you want it to look more like the default apple OSX style, right?
This is a theme that you want: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/OSX-Arc-White?content=175666
Just place it in a .themes folder in your homedirectory and apply it by going to the “gnome-tweak-tool”. (It’s already installed on antergos, just use the appmenu to find something on “tweak”.)
There are many more teams on that website that suit the MAC OS X style, along with others that look even nicer.
@ThomasPoppe Thank you. Much appreciated. Needs some study.
After restarting, going to the app-drawer still lags a bit but everything is smoother. Not fixed, but definitely a decent workaround until I find a real fix. Thanks.
“Slow” is not a fine definition. Could you define the “slowness” better?
Well, once I enter the login screen, the white box to login pops up first. With a delay, the background comes, along with the buttons on the white box etc. If I click on my name, it takes a second to switch to the password box. This all happens with animations at, my guess, 5 FPS. Once logged in, going to the left upper corner to display activities goes at around 10 FPS I think. It’s definitly smoother than the login screen but nothing near what it should be.
“Slow” remains undefined. Try to use the Impatience Gnome shell extension. It may accelerate and decelarte Gnome 3 animations.
I’ve installed it now, doesn’t seem to make much of a difference. I may have to restart my pc, but as I was writing this I thought it be better to do it afterwards.
It would be nice if it were possible for you to post back here the full output of the command:

Here you go.
Thanks for the help so far :).
I just installed antergos and I really like it so far, but the gnome shell is really slow.
From the moment I see the login screen, it’s slow. The password input is slow and the background chooser list at the right is just impossible to use due to the lagg. Once logged in, only the appdrawer and opening animations are slow. Windows move fast, chrome is fast, everything else is simply fast.
The animations are killing me. My computer is more than powerfull enough to run any linux distro though.
I’ve installed bumblebee to ensure optimus is working fine.
I’ve got an Intel I7-2670qm 2.2Ghz & Nvidia GT555m, it shouldn’t lagg the way it does now.
Everything else works flawlessly.
Thanks in advance.
