    Remove the icons from the toolbar (right click on the toolbar and select "Customize* Toolbar..." and use the View Options (CMD+J) to enlarge the icons and fonts. Also make sure to enable the Path Bar via the VIEW menu.

    * wow, they didn't localise that word for the BE version of Mac OS X

    Step 1. Make the icons bigger.

    Step 2. Choose list view.

    Step 3. Remove everything from the toolbar.

    Just drag and drop everything off. It should disappear in a puff of smoke.

    Step 4. Enable the path bar.

    Step 5. Resize your finder window.

    I'm using OS X 10.4.11 Tiger so this might be different on Snow Leopard, but won't clicking the oval shaped button at the top right of the title bar hide the icons?

    It would and will hide the icons in Mac OS X10.5 and 10.6 too, but I think the OP wants to go the route of having that empty, grey toolbar up there too.

    Yes but it also hides the Sources bar.

    The trouble is, post #1 is so vague that it's impossible to know wth is so "snazzy" about that picture. [To me, an empty toolbar is useless... not snazzy.]

    I do notice some divider lines in the PLACES section (e.g., between Applications and Documents) which seem nonstandard... so maybe that's what this thread is supposed to be about.

    We may never know. Anyway, I would suggest a complete reinstallation of Ubuntu.
