    Thats partially why i didn't include an ATM in the theme,
    However, to have a good working version, just plug an usb drive and open it back up xD,
    Simple as that

    Wow, how come? You can not change that it is always so synonymous if no USB is inside?

    Well, if you have a external drive in it it does it to, or a second partition, I'll see what I can do about it ;)

    I went to change wallpapers again (Try to change every 2 weeks or so) and lo and behold I found the Apple Images folder is chock full of images. Most are the Sierra and El Capitan wallpapers but there was this little gem too. Nice touch guys.

    Look shiny, a question before I go ahead and try: Should I install Leopard on my PowerBook G4, 2Gb DDR2? And is there a tweaking guide for performance for this OS? Currently running 10.4.11.

    My main PowerPC Mac is a PowerBook G4 12" with 1.25GB of ram on Leopard And it runs fine ;)
    I don't know about any tweaking guide for performance unfortunately :/

    10.5.8 installed with the theme.

    I think the PPCStore could have real potential for the future, possibly as an open-source community project.

    A guide on how themes are made would be a good resource too.

    Best things I have done on my Tiger and Leopard installs are disabling Dashboard and Spotlight. Of course if you use them, this may not be a good idea for you.

    Leopard will run great on a PowerBook of that spec, but here is a guide that @eyoungren, @Intell, and I wrote a few years ago on improving Leopard's performance.

    On higher spec G4s, Leopard will perform about the same as Tiger.

    Feel slightly slower. I've not done any tweaking yet, though.

    thanks, i don't know how my mac mini g4 1.25ghz will behave with leopard. tiger is ok, maybe youtube makes some problems but anyway for tiger is very stable and fast. With PPC store, ppc will not be only hobby thing, it makes usage of powerpc more professional. maybe in future some idea to upload software for download because there are lot of software for powerpc that are not actually now but there are earlier versions of it.

    I have a 1.25GHz iMac G4 running Leopard. It was slightly snappier on Tiger, but the benefits of Leopard make it worth the upgrade. However, I have 2GB RAM, and you are limited to only 1GB in the G4 Mini. So I would just weigh the pros/cons of upgrading and make your decision. Have a backup beforehand in case you want to revert to Tiger.

    Quickly fixed the TenFourFox download links and added the Roccate Web Browser to the store! :D
    Don't forget to tell me what I should add to it ;)

    You maybe can't see the added app because of cache, Try using: View>Refresh, I will try fixing all bugs in my next release ;)

    How about these apps?

    AppCleaner
    CandyBar
    CarbonCopyCloner
    Google Earth
    Burn
    XBMC
    Photosync!!!!!


    Necessarily Photosync !! So you can transfer data from iphone 5/6/7 (s) to the powerpc on both sides

    Thanks so much @sylvioG5Quad ! It works like a charm between my Nexus 4 and my PoweMac G4! Airdroid is cool as it allows you to do lots of things more than this, but as regards photos and video this is awesome! I don't need to open the browser anymore.

    @SourceSunTom you need an office suite. Now obviously putting iWork or Microsoft office on the store is pretty illegal. But libreoffice is good and still supported. You need to google libreoffice PowerPC. There's a guy who keeps updating the fork for PowerPC. I'll see if I can't find a link.

    Any word on that un-installer yet? I love the look but it is messing up my top menu bar, specifically the right side stuff like Time/Date/etc.. Plus I would like to simply revert back to Leopard scheme.

    I know it's kind of off topic, but is it sad I themed mountain lion for Sierra?

    No... many people like the classic look from Leopard-Mavericks. I think either @Dronecatcher, @redheeler, or @jbarley was working on getting a mountain lion theme for Sierra...

    I held out on Mavericks on my main computers for that very reason. In fact, my Mac Pro at work and my not-as-often-used 13" MBP are both still on Mavericks. I've grown more accustomed to the new appearance since upgrading my MBP to Sierra, but I also use dark mode and have dark wallpaper.

    I do sometimes transfer wallpapers across various versions. I was never wild about the Mavericks wallpaper, so ran the Snow Leopard wallpaper on my MBPs(much to the annoyance of @LightBulbFun ). My main G5 has the Yosemite wallpaper in Leopard and one of the alternate Yosemite papers in Tiger. I do have to say that the last three versions of OS X have had some killer default wallpapers.
