    Hello everyone,

    For some reason all of my icons are tinted white after I last rebooted. Does anyone have an idea of why this is?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    are you running tinker tool or similar 3rd party apps. I've had this happen with tinker tool on a PPC.

    nope.. I didn't install anything like that, the only thing I did was use a terminal command for finder to show hidden files

    yep thats whats it, I disabled viewing hidden files and its back to normal, thanks

    *note what confused me was it did not take affect until I rebooted, apparently if you type "killall finder" at the terminal it will take affect right away
