    So, I applied this theme the other day.
    It's a long story, but anyways, I don't know what theme I applied :eek: and I don't have the thing to remove it with. :eek: :eek: :eek:
    Anyone know what theme it is?? I want my normal OS X back. :(

    And the only reason I blacked out some stuff was b/c it contained my unique last name, etc.
    Any help would of course be amazingly appreiciated.

    Yes, but it wasn't UNO..... Something else that I can't remember the name of. :eek:
    And I should have made that more clear in my original post, so sorry for that.

    I can't think of anything else, but maybe have a look in your applications folder or system preferences. There should be some sign of it somewhere.

    Do themes go system wide? Maybe make a new account and transfer what you need... :)

    Thanks for trying to help... :)
    I know I ejected the disk image and deleted all traces of the theme from my computer (yeah, I know, I was stupid, but... it's all a long story) and no traces in system preferences. :(

    Haha. :)
    I can't tell if you were joking or not? ;-)
    Hopefully I can find out SOMEHOW.
    I'll stop my search for the theme if it goes on for more than 10 hours... :eek:
    I think it started with a v or p or something, but I could be totally off... :eek:

    EDIT: This is turning into something I feel absolutely OCD about. I can't STAND it anymore. I almost can't stand to use my computer with that stupid theme. :mad: :eek: :(

    Try searching in Spotlight for ".pkg" files, it may have left one behind. You'll have to look through them and see if you recognise the theme. :)

    Nothing. But again, thanks for the tip. :)

    If anyone knows of any themes besides UNO please just name them.
    I'm willing to try them all to get this fixed. :(

    Have you tried restarting since you deleted all of the files?

    I deleted the files and then restarted later.
    That's when the theme first worked. :(

    Nope, but thanks for the thought.

    How psycho would it be to try to install another theme, then removing that, and seeing what happens?

    It could work, but it could also hose your system. If you try it, make sure you have all your stuff backed up.

    Urk, no.
    And thank you, and all of you, for your continuing support.
    I feel like I'm saying "Nope, that's not it" too much and being too annoying. :eek:

    I thought that was for icons.

    BTW, I'm not experiencing anything like that here Gekko, though I did have a bit of trouble accessing MR a bit earlier.

    I think it looks nice, if that makes you feel any better.
    No, I didn't think it would. Sorry I don't have any real help for you.
    I don't think it looks bad, though.

    yeah it is for icons, but you can also apply themes using it as well.

    Had some things like this happen with my Winbox before, never with Mac. Ever since my scare with my Xp install being totally screwed, I have steered away from the theme packs. Do a search for the name of whatever you installed and delete everything corrosponding to it. ;)
