    Hey guys, I've come across this download link to make the cool bins for your stacks in leopard http://t.ecksdee.org/post/19001860

    However the download link is down, can anyone point me to somewhere else to download the files and also show me how to use them?

    cheers.

    Just wait a couple of days for the leopard update, those stacks seem nice again, or am I mistaking? I think you ca change the icons from then on

    Coloured Stack Drawers, made by someone, can't remember who and where.

    Stick the code in and go.


    You don't have to, to use them. All I done was place the icons in each stacks folder, then sort by date created via the stack in the dock.

    This is with no app whatsoever.

    They always remain in front when files etc are added.

    I tried just sticking the icon in the folder but the icon doesn't show up; instead I get a white error folder that shows up.

    I don't know what you have done then. All I done was put each icon for whatever folder I wanted so that it shows within the dock, that was under your user folder of course.

    Restart the Dock. Open Activity Monitor, find the Dock process, and click Quit. (You can do it with the Terminal too, with killall -HUP Dock, but both ways do the same thing.)

    You could also simply log out and back in or restart the computer.

    What's happening is it's not reading the icon because it picked up the default before it picked up the custom icon that was applied to the file/folder (not sure which those are). Restarting the Dock clears the cache and forces it to read it again.

    I guess you did come across it. I just posted it twice on the forum yesterday. ;)

    Doing it that way is easy as a suggestion.
