they are called float indicators by esxxi, heres the link (http://www.deskmodr.com/docks/float-by-esxxi.html)

This may seem like a stupid question, but I'm really stuck. I downloaded the file, how do I install it so I can use it?

Thank you

How did you go about changing the menubar font?



An app by Unsanity called Silk

I would love to know how you did that. So classy.


The HD and running app windows are a program called DragThing, as are the tabs at the bottom. The email is a mod of the Mail Checker widget at the apple website. The tunes display is a simply Bowtie config I threw together.

How'd you get your dock to look like that? Same with the apps, documents, etc at the bottom?

DragThing

Im using a utility called TinkerTool to change the system fonts, but the menubar application fonts are still default. Where does one set that font?

Try an app by Unsanity called Silk.

Dude that is awesome, how did you change the font and whatnot

Changed font with Silk (by Unsanity)

Aloha again everyone,

For some reason, I was forced to use Firefox instead of Safari to upload my desktop pics - Road Runner was unable to tell me why, but maintained that it was solely due to me using a Mac :eek:

Anyway, this is another of my own creations, intended to celebrate MacWorld 2009. I was kind of going for some sort of blend between a Leopard and a Snow Leopard. I put this on my iMac.

The program to change the dock is free and on that website...or is that not the program you wanted?

Adium (adiumx.com). Its a great app, and since I have 10 different chatting accounts it works for me even better! :)

This thread made me jealous of all the cool looking setups, so I thought I'd try something colorful for a change.

Very cool. Have a link for it?

Here's a link for mine that I neglected to post. I don't think it was made to be a desktop background, but when I applied it, it turned out pretty awesome, so just try it out before you get scared from the original shape.

Here's mine. Changed the order of the CS3 apps and the background. It's a paint that I found on deviantART.

http://antifan-real.deviantart.com/art/Speedpaint-Bridge-cities-108713254

The resolution isn't that great, just big enough to use it for a 13' Macbook.

Speed painter, but still an awesome artist.

Doesn't the blurriness of the picture bother your eyes??

This is my first time posting in one of these threads. I don't use the dock, so I always keep it hidden. It is so much easier and more efficient to use Quicksilver for everything. I barely even use the mouse anymore.

I got the idea for the volume names from another desktop I saw in one of these threads. It really simplifies things.

Thx!

For the clock & date you need to use Geektool (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/10404/geektool). The thing is that the date and time thing work with the use of code.
It wasn't easy to find, but I was able to find out how to set up my own.

in Geektool you need to make a "new shell entry" and after that fill in the codes.

The codes are:
Time: date +%l:%M
Date No.: date +%d
Month: date +%B
Day: date +%A

The colors, fonts and opacity can all be done easily in geektool.

Also, look HERE (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=628023) for help and a HOW TO.



The dock icons were changed with the use of Candybar (Not free, but there are alternatives).
The icons themselves are no longer available by the creator, but I did find a way to still get them.

Not sure exactly what you are referring to. The tabs and process window are Dragthing (http://www.dragthing.com/). Download it, play around with it; that's about the best advice I can give you. There are instructions in their forums for creating themes. The other things on the desktop are just widgets and Bowtie (http://bowtieapp.com/). If you want the OS theme itself, you'll have to request it from techkno @ DA.

Excuse the question. Where does one get the additional icons for applications like Adium, and custom folders? Also, how can I apply a custom icon in Candybar to a specific folder? I have a folder with application aliases for the apps I use most frequently, and I would like to change that icon.

Thank you for the answer.

Highlight the custom icon you want to use in Candybar and then drag the specific folder to the icon preview pane in the bottom left corner.

If you're talking about custom Kobhens icons, the iconpackager package should have come with a photoshop template that will let you create your own.

Highlight the custom icon you want to use in Candybar and then drag the specific folder to the icon preview pane in the bottom left corner.

If you're talking about custom Kobhens icons, the iconpackager package should have come with a photoshop template that will let you create your own.

Thanks. How do I modify the .PSD in order to get transparent background and so that my PNG looks the same as the others?

Thanks A LOT.

it's probably my favorite quote. my best friend has sent me 2 cards with this quote (strangely enough, it was the exact same card, sent 2 years apart!). my mom got me the mug for christmas.

open the .psd file, select the layer with the text you want to change, select the text tool, highlight the text currently there, delete it, type in your new text. Do this for the top and bottom bits of text, selecting the other layer when you switch to the second bit of text.
File > Save As - Save as a PNG. Locate this file and drag it into Candybar.

What im interested in, is how he got rid of the dock so it's just that grey bar running all the way accross. I can make the bar, i just cant get rid of my dock. Any clues anyone?

The dock icons were changed with the use of Candybar (Not free, but there are alternatives).
The icons themselves are no longer available by the creator, but I did find a way to still get them.


These are from Google Cache.

You can only click on the Download button (right below) to download them.

I did this already, it saves it with a black background. With or without interlace, the result is the same...You can make the dock transparent with the application called Mirage. You can get it if you click the Full image link of the post, that takes you to Deviantart, and there you will find the hints and links.

I made myself a PS template that overlays the bar at the bottom over whatever image I choose (then export as a JPG), used the Mirage (http://www.dockulicious.com/docks/view/mirage) clear dock (thx for telling me about it, You Know Who You Are :)), and that player on the left for iTunes is Bowtie (http://bowtieapp.com/).

The dock icons are the Kobhens (http://macthemes2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16781372) set - and I made the stacks icons myself to match.
