A new month, a new thread.

• For large images use [tIMG] rather than [IMG]
• Use attachments when necessary so images don't disappear when they are removed from their source
• When quoting a post with images, leave the image out, or make sure you [tIMG] to reduce clutter.
• When possible, include links to the full-sized original so others can download them. If you don't want to share, state that in your posts so others don't continue to ask for links.
(Above instructions copied from the July thread).

Heres mine for August.

Sorry, Forgot to include the original image in the post.


Re: Date & Time on the desktop theres a few cool programs I found out about searching through the forum. The one handling date and time is GeekTool. There is a VERY extensive thread on the program. What I have set up took some time to figure out as scripts are NOT my forte'. The first post had everything listed I wanted and tooling around with it yielded the results I was happy with. Some guys take it to extraordinary levels, I just don't have the patients. I'd love it to be more intricate, embossed, shadowed and whatnot but I simply can't put the time necessary.

Fun little application though!

Can anyone tell me if there's an easy way to change the background on every space, instead of just the one selected? I like the idea of individual backgrounds for each space, but it's jarring to use. I'd prefer to have them all changed immediately without having to delete every space and start over...

If you're on Leopard, how do you have Launchpad in your dock? :confused:

I was waiting for that question to come up. :D

I just made an empty app (Text editor > Save as App Store.rtf > Change extention to .app > change its icon to App Store icon)

The same with the Launchpad icon :)

This is what I get when I open the apps - it's Dutch, but it says "The application [...] cannot be opened"
It does look cool, though :)

I agree that a nice clean desktop is a must and can't stand things cluttering it up. On that some note though I still don't get why you feel the need to have icons for apps you don't have. Why don't you just upgrade and get them for real?

1) I think the icons look nice with the dock. Other than that it gives my desktop a Lion-like look.

2) My iMac has a PowerPC G5 processor, and Snow Leopard and Lion only work with Intel-processors. Leopard does run on PowerPC-processors, so...

You might wonder why I won't just buy a new Mac then.
Well, I bought this iMac a month ago and Leopard is enough for me.
Besides, I don't make thousands of dollars a month so I think even this iMac is pretty neat for a 16-year-old. :D

It's common to use desktops with all sorts of branding, probably more so on Windows. I've seen desktops with Disney logos, McDonalds, Ferrari (and every other car manufacturer), Asus, Dell, HP, etc. Apple certainly has a lot of passionate users, so of course they get probably more than their fair share, but I don't think it's too unusual, and certainly not weird. I have a Star Wars desktop right now, and I'm not sure how that's so different.

funny story about that.

i didn't really do anything. when i had snow leopard i had deleted the dock using Mirage (http://www.dockulicious.com/docks/view/mirage) (DO NOT USE THIS ON LION IT WILL SCREW IT UP!!!) when i upgraded to lion this is the dock it gave me. that dock you see is actually the 2D default dock that comes with the OS.

as for the icons i use i got them in collaboration with a Melrose who is a member here at MR. i changed them manually but if you don't know how to do that i recommend that you use LiteIcon (http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/LiteIcon.shtml)

Nice photo.

i think that maybe the reason they were such a good team is because they played very well as a team. Talent wise however the players of today are probably better as a whole. But the problem is its more about the individual and less about the team. So i would agree that they would be able to beat the players of today but only because they know how to play as a team cause that was the style of play back then.

I have three main desktops and Sparrow/iTunes are always full-screen.

Using the fact that Lion will allow you to have different backgrounds I made a seamless wallpaper over the three desktops. The hardest challenge was getting an image of good quality at the right size.
A quick google search for panorama at I think 40 megapixels will yield this one, then it's just a matter of chopping it up.

Oh, alright!

1) Make your dock 2D
2) Make your docks background transparent
3) Create a custom file in Photoshop which has a shadow in it, so that it seems that the wallpaper is on top of it, and open that in Geektool.

It's very hard to explain it in words, but if you like, I'll make a small tutorial with images on DeviantArt or something, because I'm sure others would like to know this as well.

What are you using for the mods?

I used the Flurry iconset (click (http://iconfactory.com/home/permalink/2161)), the Blue And Green wallpaper (click (http://zim2687.deviantart.com/art/Blue-and-Green-206584536)) and a custom made dock wallpaper (click (http://nilscollection.deviantart.com/#/d46j8p5) for tutorial).


That is perfect!

Thank you!

You're welcome. :)

Had to get a new laptop for work (only 3 choices were available), so here is the desktop on my new Alienware M17x.

ill make the newbie post because i want to know lol. does anyone know how can you get tile icons like this using geek tool. i downloaded it and opened it and my head went blank. i do like the tile idea of windows 8 but am not leaving OS X and this would make it work i think.

Finally got around to tweaking my desktop a bit after installing lion. Also, going by the amount of people who appear to be using it, I assume the latest build of geek tool plays nicely with Lion, or are the people I see using it still running 10.6?

I can't see anything on the 'artists' site about photography. Also what you linked to is the same resolution as the background images in that site, clearly it wasn't intended for distribution.

The one on the IFL obviously hasn't been interpolated as the high-res versions look very sharp, so really who cares?

Where'd you get that menubar?

It doesn't look like Nocturne or Obsidian. It looks like maxTheme's Aqua Extreme that I had on SL and have been waiting for for Lion.

I have a theming related query. Does using a dock/menubar theme consume resources (CPU/RAM/Whatever) like skinning Windows does?

ndstrenge
Aug 23, 2011, 06:16 PM
Most of the themes I have come across simply replace system files, and keep a backup of the default. They don't generally require more resources.

And- I now think that LouisLivesLife's menubar is actually Nocturne.

Actually it is the App Nocturne that I use, the reason for the blueish tint in some Icons is because I can Adjust the colour in the app 'SMCFancontrol' And because i wad running low on battery :)

Hope that helped.

That is a gorgeous desktop. I'm currently trying to copy it for my own right now, if I get stuck, I'm coming to you for help.

Alright, no matter what I do, Nocturne makes the menubar get stuck halway between up and down in fullscreen apps :(, and I can't get my calendar to look anything like yours. helps!

Ok , let me help you here (:
Nocturne basically inverts the menubar, however when you put an app in full screen mode the menubar will disappear but nocturne will continue to invert the colours of the top pixels this might result in a white bar when you're watching a movie .. You'll just have to cope with it.
For the Calendar I used an app called 'Dateline' I think I got it from the app store for less then 1€!

If you got more questions, please ask!
And thank you(:
