Sorry guys for the late answer, here is all the stuff and thanks for comments ;)
The bad news for me is that Mac OS X don´t like rearrange of desktop icons i have to use Destility to get back my icons to that place avery time that i reboot.

Theme: UMASO (http://interfacelift.com/themes-mac/details.php?id=180)

Icons: Mix of CHUMS (http://interfacelift.com/icons-mac/details.php?id=1795) and Matrix Rebooted (http://iconfactory.com/freeware/preview/mtxr) and BOX is part of Xpack (http://interfacelift.com/icons-mac/details.php?id=1601) Icons. Beautiful ones all they!

Wallpaper: by vhm Alex (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/53895639/)

If someone discovered how to retain desk icons in the same place every time that you reboot let me know it please, with no help of Desktility ofcourse.


thanks for sharing; how'd you get the icons so large on your desktop as well as to show all the info you have? when i put the icons on my desktop it's not the full size image, just a small preview of it or a mini-icon.

EDIT: nevermind, figured it out. i couldn't open xpack though, it was a .sit file and i couldn't open it...any recs?

Have you tried all the voodoo like deleting the caches, logs and .DS Store files? If anything silly like that happens, that's usually the first thing I do.

Are on Mac UKingdom? You can open it with Stuffit Xpander it´s like Winrar on PC if you are on PC anyway that icons are for Mac. You can increase the size here ----> Finder Menu (In desktop) ---> View Menu --->
Show View options ---> and final icon size.

This month I only have my Ubuntu 7.04, which I have been trying and finally accomplished installing on my Mac Pro (I had to use VMWARE), But I like the desktop so I wanted to share.

I believe the Calendar is a Yahoo Widget (or maybe a Dashboard widget I've never seen). If it's a Dashboard widget, he/she either has Developer Mode turn on or did the drag-and-close-Dashboard trick.

Here's a tip: Use Adium (http://www.adiumx.com/) (a very customisable IM app) to replace AIM and the dreadful Microsoft Messenger. You log on with the same addresses and passwords, and can even be on both accounts at once, keeping your contact lists

Also, instead of the hideous Limewire, use Acqlite (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/12747), or even better Acquisition (http://www.acquisitionp2p.com/) (if you're willing to pay, or put up with a few nags to do so). They both connect to the same places as Limewire, so you get the same things to download :)

My next one...posting it here so I don't lose it :)

It's a Yahoo widget...the Yahoo icon is in the menu bar. I killed my Dashboard calendar trying to modify it, so I got the Yahoo one instead.

Apps from left to right in the menu bar: Desktop Manager, iScrobbler, Yahoo Widgets, Adium's in there somewhere, SMART Reporter, all the normal stuff, and MagiCal at the end.

Snapz Pro hijacked my screencapture and I don't know how to remove it completely, so I'll just post the wallpaper I'm using. Everything else is just usual OS X anyway (dock has Mail, Safari, iChat and Photoshop if you're really curious. The menubar is just the default plus the iChat icon).

the DS icon is just the microSD card i put for backup ;) games (google for "r4 DS"). i assign icons to my memory cards/HDDs based on purpose. The WD for overall backup, iriver is my old hdd mp3 player, i also have icon for my dslr (e300). i got the nintendo icon on the net then i created the others myself using this howto Create custom icons for external HDD (http://lifehacker.com/software/icons/mac-tip--create-custom-icons-for-external-hard-drives-255404.php).

yeah i would like to know where u got those icons as well,

attached are the PNG files for the icons i created (WD, iriver, and e300).

this is where i got the NDS icon: http://www.crystalxp.net/galerie/en.id.993.html

and interfacelift for the macbook icon. :)

EDIT: created = getting base images for the icons and just setting the size and the transparency in Photoshop

My error, assumed it was a single monitor, didn't look at the zoomed out shot which makes it obvious.

elbirth
May 26, 2007, 02:59 PM
yeah, on multiple monitor setups, the menubar doesn't span across them all. It makes sense because it'd just be dead space, but sometimes it can get slightly annoying to have to move the mouse back to another monitor just to access something in an app's menus. but at the same time, it gives you just that extra bit of free space to put windows.

On Windows computers, however, it helps to have the taskbar span all monitors. And you can do that with a 3rd party app called Ultramon. It lets each monitor have its own dedicated taskbar, which is really nice

you probably can't rename it because it's formatted in NTFS, which is a format that OS X can't (easily) alter. you'll need to rename it within Windows

Veritas&Equitas
May 26, 2007, 05:21 PM
Correct. Just go into Windows, and put a period (.) before the name of the C: drive or "local disk" or whatever it is named...then it will be invisible on the desktop when you boot into OS X.

But first, you obviously have to boot into Windows to rename the drive (being NTFS and all).

A new one. Unlike some people, I love Adobe's new "periodic table" style icons. Oh yea, and this is one the FINEST asses I have ever seen. :D

Wow, you really love the periodic table style icons! Looks good! Although I'd have trouble spotting the app I want and running any other program not on the dock would p**s me off since its icon wouldn't match!

Thought about that. But I figured that that is why I have Quicksilver, to launch whatever is not in the dock. Which is hard for me, because my dock always spans the length of my screen. But I really want a very streamlined desktop now. There are a ton of apps in the icon list, but some I dont have and some I do have but use too much, so I didnt see the need to put them in the dock.

Wallpaper (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/55506182/)

I had to crop it to my liking since it wasn't a widescreen format.

For the message style just use whatever one you want and then make the background a color (I chose black) and then adjust the transparency of it...same for the contact list. They're both just standard themes that come with adium...just tweaked a bit.

What's the app that displays the Album Artwork on the desktop ?

haha, nice. you bring up a good point, though. I wonder how many people there are that actually take the time to make it look cool and interesting just for posting here, versus the people that don't. I, for one, posted exactly what I look at everyday in my post a few pages back (the triple screen setup)

Lots in photo and color work make their desktops and theme all grey to help with accurate color represhentation. While it's cool to look at, having a desktop with a car or something on it can get in the way of accurately working with colors.

It's part of the Canum theme by ToNer. Here's the link to the theme:

http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/56293853/

Open up the .dmg and the wallpapers are in the "Extras" bit...the one I'm using is Canum gradient.

Oh and I agree with both of you about Keane...I was lucky enough to see them live a while back :D

I'll list the ones that appear in my menu bar:

MenuCalenderClock iCal - http://www.objectpark.net/mcc.html
Growl - http://growl.info/about.php
CoverSutra (iTunes controller) - http://coversutra.com/

Growl is completely free, MenuCalenderClock is free with some of its features disabled but you have to pay for CoverSutra.

Another alternative iTunes controller is Synergy (http://wincent.com/a/products/synergy-classic/), which is not quite as pretty as CoverSutra but is cheaper.

And an even cheaper alternative (free) is ByteController (http://www.bytetastic.com/). Not quite the same as Synergy, but pretty close if you have Growl installed.

Also true...but CoverSutra is so........PRETTY.... :)

I actually only use CoverCutra to display album my album art and tell me what song is playing, I use QS to control my iTunes.

Dock is usually hidden with magnification turned off. I use adium and quicksilver and growl, but don't have them in the menubar (no point in having them, in my opinion). I also turn off desktop icons (harddrive, mounted drives, cds, etc.)

I use adium and quicksilver and growl, but don't have them in the menubar (no point in having them, in my opinion).

I see this comment from a lot of people, so I guess a retort is needed to point something out that may not be apparent until you start customizing Adium:
You can customize Adium such that it has no options bar on top of the buddy list. For an example, see my full-res screenshot here (http://heycubed.net/stuff/macpro3monitorfull.jpg). It's on the far left. I've blurred out the names just for privacy issues, but you can still see that there's no bar at the top for various options, such as choosing away message.
Now, one might say "hey, just right-click the dock icon and do that!" To those nay-sayers, I say.... "nay!" While that's an option, you have to go through an extra branch in the menu to get to the global status options. And even then, there's no individual options for different accounts (at any one time I'm logged into AIM, Yahoo!, MSN, ICQ, and Jabber). Sometimes I like individual states for the accounts.
Simply put- when you have multiple accounts and have the buddy list in a minimalist view, the menubar icon is actually quite useful (moreso than the dock icon).

Now, for Quicksilver... I agree, both the dock and menubar icon are unnecessary- I still leave the dock icon just for the heck of it though

I leave the dock icon simply so it's easier to restart if QS starts hoggin' resources or just needs to be restarted. For whatever reason, the "Relaunch" action works with most apps...but not QS itself :)

How did you change the icon for your Windows drive? When I try to change mine to that same icon, it won't let me.

That's not my screenshot, but... you have to boot into Windows and change the icon there. I can't recall the exact method off the top of my head for changing Windows icons (IIRC, it's a different process to be done on the boot drive than on other ordinary ones).

It's my screenshot, and you're totally wrong. :)

Sometimes it reverts itself, but I did it in the normal way you do it for OS X. I guess the issue might just be if you formatted your drive as NTFS, which OS X can't write to natively. Mine's formatted as FAT32, so can be written to.
