Monthly Desktops Guidelines:


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 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.
When quoting a post with images, remove the images to reduce clutter
Please report any posts you feel need attention by clicking on this icon: http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/buttons/report.gif.

* * *

Let's have another month of great desktop sharing!

The easiest way to get that dock would be to make your dock invisible and actually edit your wallpaper to have that "dock" in it... I wouldn't be surprised if that's how it was done originally actually.

I believe this is what you're looking for.. if i'm not mistaken that whole look you're looking for has to be done with geektool, which i have found a bit confusing to use but good luck

How did you make your menu bar and dock black?
I'd love to have a darker OS X theme for nighttime programming, but I've got no idea how to do that.

How did you make your menu bar and dock black?

For the dock you can use CandyBar (http://www.panic.com/candybar/), but the menubar is a little more tricky. Download ThemePark (http://download.cnet.com/ThemePark/3000-18551_4-10209258.html?tag=mncol;lst) and edit the SArtFile.bin (file:///System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Versions/A/Resources/SArtFile.bin), and find the menubar image (if you need the specific image let me know). Then change that to something you want (black), and then your menubar is black. However, your menubar items won't change to white, you have to do that yourself, or create a menubar image that is half black on left, and half white on right.

Like I said, I really don't know how to do much else, so if anyone could help me, that would be awesome.

So it's basically just the menubar that has another colour, right?
I'd like to change the complete OS X theme to black, including all finder windows and so on, but I reckon that such modifications are not possible, are they?

*To-Do list (let me know if you think I should add something)
*Create menu items for iChat (help!)
*Create menu items for Geektool
*Change Menu bar apple logo
*Edit that iChat looking thing to display different status badges, and run in the background without Amnesty (Please help!)
*Find out how to display current song with geektool, then do something with it
*Find out how to change system fonts (help!)

Just found the icons online: Token by ~brsev on deviantART (http://brsev.deviantart.com/art/Token-128429570)
As for the Buddy list, it's just a modified widget (iChatWidget - by Running with Rocks and Paper (http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/email_messaging/ichatwidget.html)). Again, this is something I am still working on, I don't know how (or if it's possible), to get it on the desktop layer other then having a third party app running it.

So it's basically just the menubar that has another colour, right?
I'd like to change the complete OS X theme to black, including all finder windows and so on, but I reckon that such modifications are not possible, are they?

Well I don't know how to do them, but those modifications seem to be easily achieved. Take a look at this: MacThemes Forum / [Theme]Black Mac OS X (http://macthemes.net/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=411454)
If anyone has any say on this I would love to hear it.

Desktop image was created by me from a far smaller source image, and took me a few hours because the original was only 1000x1900, so lots of clone stamping, layering, and effects work. I'm a Photoshop n00b, but this looks good enough for my personal use.

you won't be able to make the date go away unfortunately. iCal automatically places the date on the icon. You could try editing the icon in photoshop to better accommodate the date?

Or just right click on the Desktop and go to "Show View Options". From there you can change the icon size (mine is 28x28), "Label Position" (Right), and the extra information by checking "Show Item Info".

This was an image I found on a Flickr account through a Tumblr post earlier today.

One of my favorite movies from last fall. The Zombieland Icon is my own work, and I've attached the 512x512 PNG. If you want to use it as an icon, you can use img2icns to create a folder or icon file from it.

Threr's a couple of ways I know of, the first is to manually edit the system files with new ones but one needs to know what they are doing.
Other way is the safest and quickest is to use an installer something like
http://cristomac24.deviantart.com/art/SnowTunes-iTunes-9-OS-X-theme-141310715
If you go with custom install I think it lets you set styles and colours up.

Hi that's not the nornal dock, it's called Dragthing (shareware 15 day trial)

However one can get a very similar result with geektool (freeware) by using the mirage basic dock and then geektool to set an image to the desktop with a level of opacity, I prefer the Geektool way and would use that longterm.

The font I use in that screenshot are Calibri.

It's the default it comes with with Leopard. Apart from the position of the dock and the level of magnification I don't actually know how to personalise my Mac.

I notice that some of you have very cool icons, bars, docks, effects etc.

Magnifique is excellent, however development has been stopped so you can no longer download it from their website. There will be places out there though where you can find it.

It also means their online library of themes is no long accessable, so if you want to add a new theme, you need to download it first and open it with Magnifique. Check out the macthemes (http://macthemes.net/forum/) forums for this.

Also....DO NOT USE MAGNIFIQUE ON SNOW LEOPARD

It causes serious problems.

I'm thinking about adding a Magnifique section to the guide (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=871944), but seeing as it's no longer under development I'm not sure if I should.
There are also other ways to theme Snow Leopard that are a little more fiddly, which I might put up, but I don't have SL so I'm not sure how I'll do it. We'll see.

What would people like to see?
