Anybody know of a tutorial on how to make an Adium Dock Icon with Active, Idle, Offline, Away, etc.?
I don't know of a tutorial, but if you dissect any current Dock icons you have you can see how they are constructed.
To dissect the an icon go to: Library>Application Support>Adium>Dock Icons.
Select an icon and right click and show package contents. This will show all the icons for the different availability statuses. You'll also notice a .plist file, open this and it will show you the programming of when to show what .PNG icon file.
Do you see what I mean? Any more questions then let me know.
That's interesting, thanks for showing me that!
I'd still need to know how to get them all together like that.
http://www.adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=support : Click "Creating Dock Icons".
How do you actually make it a 'package' though?
I've done all the graphics&the icon.plist file, but I don't know how to use it.
I think there's a tutorial on the Adium website
EDIT: evands has got it, but clicking either of the "how to" links gets a "500 - Internal Server Error" page displayed for me
Go to Apps > Adium > Show Package Contents > Contents > Resources > Dock Icons > and then select an icon set > Show Package Contents
There you'll find all the PNGs that make the dock icon for that set. Simply make your own PNG replacements and copy them into place.
Then you have to tweak the IconPack.plist file, but that's relatively easy.
At least, that's the way I did mine and they work okay.
