:) HAPPY HOLIDAYS :)

Mod Note

Please refrain from quoting images. If you want to see the picture that a post is referring to, you can press this button: http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/buttons/viewpost.gif

For large images, please use [timg] tags rather than plain old tags. You can also use the attachment feature (aka http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/editor/attach.gif) to post your desktop screen shot.

Let's keep this family friendly. If your image is NSFW or borderline just don't post it. If it's questionable and gets reported, it will be deleted.

Please include links to the full-size original in your first post so that people can download it if they want. This will help stop the hundreds of "link please" posts.

If you can't/don't want to share (for example your own work), that is fine but please state that in the post when showing your desktop.


Many members here will either be displaying their cover art using CoverSutra (http://www.sophiestication.com/coversutra/) or Bowtie (http://bowtieapp.com/). In addition, the members with a lot of text information on their desktops are using the Geektool (http://projects.tynsoe.org/en/geektool/) preference pane. Sweet Geektool scripts can be found here (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=628023)!

Basically please try and provide as much information as possible about your desktop and setup as there will no doubt be questions asked so best to get the information down first time.

Please report any posts you feel need attention by clicking on this icon: [IMG]http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/buttons/report.gif. Thank you.

We know, but the thread starter feels a burning desire to be the one who starts these threads so he does and gets away with it being a day early. What is no big deal to most is a very big deal to some. ;) Just roll with it and we'll pretend. :D

Here is mine. Nothing going on as I just swapped drives.
You can find the image at www.google.com. I don't have the exact link.

I will have 3 different desktops due to the 2 holidays that fall in December. The light house will be my default desktop. Come Hanukkah time it will change. Finally for Christmas, I will have a 3rd desktop. Links below. I could not find the link for the Hanukkah wallpaper. I will keep looking. Found the link for the Hanukkah wallpaper: www.Kate.net

Whoa woww!!! How did you make that dock?! It's amazing!

first you must make the dock INVISIBLE (http://usingmac.com/2007/11/8/leopard-invisible-dock-and-black-dock). then create a blank geektool shell script, make it semi transparent and place it over the icons. the icons i use can be found HERE (http://The-Bulldozer.deviantart.com/art/The-Kobhens-DS-Expansion-Pack-103341543). if you have any questions about the geektool part or any other aspect of the process dont hesitate to PM me.



About this whole starting the thread early, i find it kind of a fun tradition here on macrumors to start it early. if you look back over the years its been going on well before i started doing it. Also, i have been pretty busy with work these past few months and havent been able to post much on these forums like i used to over the summer. So being the one that starts the month desktops thread is a way for me to still be a part of this community. now that doesnt mean that if someone else starts it before me or wants to do it im going to shed a tear or anything but jessica. is right i really like being the one that starts it haha.

You can also get superdocker. They have a dock called "no dock". Thats what i'm using now. Just another way of making it invisible (FYI) and Thanks for the tip Vicious. I'll try this tonight!!:D

i know this is gonna sound stupid and very newbie like, but how do i change the text on it? i'm using GIMP to have a go because i don't have any need to use photoshop. i'm assuming it's something very simple but it's been driving me crazy for ages.

just saw you're reply now, if you could i'd like icons for Vuze, Apps folder, facebook, isquint (avi converter) , plex, keynote, smultron (html editor), codeblocks (programming IDE). i know there's a few there but that'd be really awesome if you could do them for me :)

Here's my December desktop on my work computer, looking forward to the release of 'Avatar' this month.

Normally it's at the jaw drapping resolutuion of 2560x1600. Regrettably I can't give the original out as Warner would no doubt rip me a new one for distributing it. Perhaps after the release day I could leak it. ;)

I really like it, except for your use of Papyrus, which is a crime against humanity made in ones and zeroes.

Calendar font is Herculanum, and the weather text is Handwriting - Dakota. Have some decency, sir! =)

But anyway, how about this?

i know this is gonna sound stupid and very newbie like, but how do i change the text on it? i'm using GIMP to have a go because i don't have any need to use photoshop. i'm assuming it's something very simple but it's been driving me crazy for ages.

just saw you're reply now, if you could i'd like icons for Vuze, Apps folder, facebook, isquint (avi converter) , plex, keynote, smultron (html editor), codeblocks (programming IDE). i know there's a few there but that'd be really awesome if you could do them for me :)

yea i got you. i should be able to get to it sometime this weekend cause im on the road right now.

I read that you right click -> get info for the icon you want to use, click the image in the top left corner and hit cmd c, than click the icon you want to replace, click get into, and the click the icon in the top left and click cmd v. For some reason it won't work. I'm using SL if that makes a difference.

Yes u can do it that way but i found it to be a bit of a Pain in da a*s. U have to unlock it and make a read and write. Candybar is a way better process. U can pretty much do everything with the trial one. Try it.

That is Adium with a custom skin on it, I am not sure which one but I am sure if you looked on DeviantArt you could find it in a matter of seconds.

Hope you don't mind, or whoever you got it from, but I modified it a bit. The brownish color wasn't doing it for me.

I really need to change the default icons.

Finally figured out Candybar. I'm having fun playing around with icons and stuff lol. Desktop -> files -> original. I'm still playing around :p

Hi,

I saw quite a few desktop pics on this page.... and they have this weather and clouds and sunshine on one corner, music playing in another corner...

How do you get that ? How can I make it happen on my Mac ?

Been admiring all the wonderful desktops here for months before I got my 1st Mac in October, a 15" 3.06GHz MacBook Pro 5,3! I love it... my Father says that's because, and this is going to date me, it reminds me of the Atari ST. Once he said that it clicked, it does! So yes, I've been a geek for quite a long time (Actually started on an Atari 800 with 64KB of RAM... I know 64 WHOLE KB!).

Anywho, I thought it would be cool to post my December desktop as my first post so here it goes...

http://www.tikisoftentertainment.com/pics/120709_desktop.jpg

http://www.tikisoftentertainment.com/pics/120709_desktop_spaces.jpg

I created this custom desktop myself in Photoshop. I know, other than the green color, that it's not very "holiday-ish" but I like it. If you would like a copy of this please send me a PM and I'll email it to you. I did this rather than hosting it myself to kinda get a finger on how "popular" it is so that I can decide to make more or not.

The icon in the middle is a mythosaur skull taken from the right shoulder piece of Boba Fett's armor.

"The traditional Mandalorian crest, frequently mistaken for a Bantha Skull, bears a striking resemblance to the skull of a male mythosaur. But in truth, the symbol was actually adopted in reverence to a legendary Mandalorian combat-training master." (Source: "History of the Mandalorians," Star Wars Insider #80)

Custom application icons were used for Finder, Mail (Star Wars: A New Hope), Safari (Pith Helmet & Machete), iTunes (Headphones), VLC Media Player, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, World of Warcraft Launcher (Custom icon by me) & Gmail (Pirate Flag). Custom folder and drive icons are from the "ALUMI v2" icon set by Joy-Vincent Niemantsverdriet. All of these were inserted with CandyBar v3.2.2.

GeekTool is of course used for the Date / Time, Hard Drive Information, IP Information & Weather. Date / Time font is FairydustB and the Hard Drive Info, IP Info & Weather font is Lucida Grande.

DateLine is used for the calendar above the Dock.

Bowtie is being used for the iTunes information bar at the top. I'm using The Dark Knight - Reloaded (http://macthemes2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16790849) theme by Roberto Urso.

Aloha everyone,

I recently purchased an iMac Core i5 and decided to once again post my desktops. The screen is enormous, as compared to my 15" GlassBook Pro. I host my iTunes and iPhoto libraries on an external drive, so that while on vacation I can take everything with me. When I fired up both apps on my new iMac, the window sizes remained the same as when last opened on my GlassBook Pro. The screenshot shows just how much larger 2650x1440 is over 1440x900! I have since somewhat become accustomed to its much larger size :D

It looks like they are using Lätt Classic from the Lätt for OS X (http://www.vanillasoap.com/2008/11/icon-latt.html) collection... although the colors look a little off, the icons are identical though.

There are four different color sets that come in the package... Lätt (Beige / Tan), Lätt Classic (Bluish / Purply), Lätt Office (Grey) & Lätt Park (Green).

Could you please post links to your itunes and vlc icons ?
The iTunes icon they are using is called iTunes 08 (http://jonasraskdesign.com/downloads/downloads.html) by Jonas Rask. It's about midway down in the far right column. I can't tell which icon is the VLC icon though.

What I see on his screen is Finder, Safari, Mail, iTunes, Twitter (?), RSS Reader, Not sure what the car is, CandyBar, Photoshop and then Time Capsule & Trash. Unless I missed an icon somewhere...

Enjoy

Most people use Candybar to change their icons. It's pretty easy to use and it's app specific too. :)
