    Hello All,

    This may or may not be possible, Is there anyway to make the OSX Tiger style menu bar square on the edges instead of round on Tiger?

    If I can tweak a file great, I dont want to rob any performance with a theme or anything like that.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Macintosh HD>System>Library>Core Services>Dock.app(Show Package Contents)>Contents>Resources

    search for scurve-l, scurve-m, scurve-sm, scurve-xl (.png of course)

    get down the dimensions, edit the scurve-xl, (trim the top edges of course) and resize to the dimensions youve taken from those files, rename them accordingly, save, move back to dock.app>contents>resources

    open Terminal
    type "killall Dock"

    vóila

    That's the dock, not the menu bar.

    Any other ideas guys? I have an older iBook G4 which runs Tiger great, I dont want to install Leopard as I feel Tiger is snappy and works for my needs I was just hoping to be able to modify or swap a few files to achieve this. I like the way my other 2 leopard computers in my house look.

    If it cant be done without a third party themeing app then thats fine. I dont want to be running anything in the backround to make this possible as performance is my biggest requirement.

    Being an iBook G4 keeping it lean is a must :)

    Thanks guys!
