    Hi all! I've been breaking my head over it, and can´t find an answer... Anyone knows a way to change the overall look of OS X - the color/style of the menu bar, the color of background and text in windows and dialog boxes, the color of the header of selected apps or windows, etc on Leopard? Here's a screenshot I found in a mac forum in spanish - notice the dark background and white text, plus the color of the menu bar:

    Is there a specific app to achieve this? or, if it must be done through terminal and command lines, where can I find info to learn? I've tried to contact the original author, but no luck.

    Thanks!

    For Tiger there is ShapeShifter, but nothing I know of for Leopard.

    r.j.s, mattrobs, opeter: Thanks a lot for your input...! now I know the correct term ("theming", themes... sorry, english is not my first language).

    Anyway, I read somewhere that this kind of apps sometimes mess around with the system´s performance and tend to cause problems... ¿if you've used them, how did it go for you?

    Thanks again,
