View Full Version : Lion Hacks - black menu bar?

Has anyone hacked their Lion to look a bit unique?

First I tried the dock hack where you can put the 2d dock at the bottom instead of the 3d dock. Then I decided since Apple insists on us having all apps in one huge folder and I am starting to get too many...I needed a replacement launcher. So I downloaded Drag Thing, and then hid the built in dock completely so it won't appear at all when I go near the edge of the screen. I used Dock Gone for that. Drag thing is awesome! I have the dock set to hide and only the tabs show until you hover over them.

What I'd like to do now is keep the setup as below with the black menu bar! (I am using Nocturne for that) However if you notice on the 2nd screenshot, viewing apps in full screen mode, the top is messed up! :( Does anyone know of a solution for that?

Are there any other cool hacks that I don't know about yet? :)

I tried Obsidian but some of my menu bar items did not turn white... They all work with Nocturne, everything turned white - it's just the bug with full screen apps... :(

yes, you have to also find white icons for your menu bar (the apple and spotlight are white with the theme...).

check macthemes forums, lots of good stuff there...
