Would you mind if I submitted your excellent hack for colorizing the sidebar on MacOsXhints.com? I will naturally give you the credit. I just think it's something a lot of folks would love to do.

Lemme know.

Well, my Plaster mod has it and I've definitely seen others (p.e. Siro).
If you add the iTunes skin in ThemePark, you have but 2 resources to edit : LCD Display (Large) and LCD Display (Small).

My first couple of tries hosed my Finder. Good old Mac OS 9 saved my .

What finally worked consistently for me is to first highlight the hex numbers to be replaced and then type in the new ones.

As always, HAVE A BACKUP!

ok lets do option #2 then

go here and download then "Aqua LCD" skin for iTunes. all that one does is change the display. get it, open that up in ThemePark and see what they did. they did exactly what i said above though, so i'm confused as why it didn't work for you.
ok, I'll try that then when I get home this evening - thanks again!

I know Max' dock separators. But what an original idea to apply them to the sidebar
And about Serenity : the Blue light icons are available on my site as plain mac folders (for people who perhaps can't handle Windows icons). Of course, this was done with heylove's kind permission. If anyone wants the other colors, I could transpose them as well on request.

iTunes was still themed by shapeshifter! I had to put it on the ignore list!

my iTunes is themed by the theme i use as well. i'm using siro, but it only changes the buttons and look of iTunes. it doesn't change the display or if it does, its the same display i themed into iTunes before i got ShapeShifter.

Nice screenshot.

For the menubar clock, are you using Calendarclock, or some other program? What font are you using for the clock? Is it Lucida Grande?

Finally, do you have a link to Glide's Equal 02 icons? Google turned up nothing for me.

Regards,

G.

Is there any way I could get my hands on that Adium Skin mod?

Also, how did you change the status icons?

Thanks!

In order to use the status icons from Proteus in Adium, first find the .iconpack (proteus) of your choice and Show Package Contents. Now go to Adium and Show Package Contents/Resources/Status Icons/Gems.AdiumStatusIcons/ and replace with the ones from your .iconpack from Proteus. Hope that helps.

@fivminwalk:

The icons i got from the miranda website (dont have a link for it, sorry) and i replaced them on the resources of the package contents of adium.app.

The skin is basically a modified Aqua Grid and Group chat bubbles, not really my own per se. If you have adium 0.7 you can get it like that with some tweaks in the prefferences...

how did you get the QS browse window all black/transparent like that? i've tried but no matter what colour i enter it just stays friggin' white!

also, props for always having such 'artistic' photos in your screen grabs!

Haley:

how did you get Adium to let you use silkscreen at size 8? mine (0.7x beta) won't accept any number less than 9.
