Where does Leopard store source menu icons?

    This is a really kind of dumb trivial/cosmetic issue, but basically I don't like the blue iTunes icon (I use the green one from iTunes v4-6) and I prefer the Leopard Server default desktop background over the client version (blue Aurora instead purple, basically)

    So, thanks to my mild OCD tendencies, I want the icons in my source menu to match this. I was wondering if anybody knows where those icons are located in the (I'm assuming) System folder? Does anyone know what I'm talking about, the icons that appear in the Finder under "Places" and what not?

    ANd if anyone has a copy of the icon from Leopard (which I assume has a blue background), I would be eternally grateful!

    It sounds like you're looking for the application icons rather than the menu icons. They're stored inside the applications themselves. Go to iTunes.app, right/control-click, and select Show package contents. The application icon can be found at Contents/Resources/iTunes.icns.

    I think what you want is in the CoreTypes bundle.
    System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources (or something similar)

    The files you are after start with "Toolbar"

    I hope this is what you're after

    I think that works only in Tiger and not in Leopard.

    No, Mac One is correct. For instance, the Desktop icon is /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/ToolbarDesktopFolderIcon.icns
