Why are not all the Bezel UIs used?

I don't seem to have this folder...
I think it's to do with future updates of OS X etc.

i don't either. Did you install a gui shifter like "shapeshifter"?

Yeah, uhm, er... mine's located at (10.4.8):

/System/Library/LoginPlugins/BezelServices.loginplugins/Contents/Resources/BezelUI/Images

And if you're referring to those images in there, which may or may not be the same as to what you're referring to, I believe they are all used in various hardware/software combinations.

EDIT: You should use an attachment rather than a hotlinked file... that way it's nice and thumbnailed.

EDIT 2: I have twenty images in the folder I listed above, so mine is in a different location as yours.

I do have it in the same location Benjamin gave -- and I don't have anything like shapeshifter -- but the BezelUI folder for some reason is not visible from Finder by default. So I had to terminal to the location and then "open ." But after this, I was able to see it.

It contains bezel images like the icons that flash when a bluetooth mouse or kb is acquired or lost, or when you adjust sound. For instance, on my iMac, there are only a few that don't work, and I don't think they're applicable -- such as the contrast one (not applicable to LCDs) and the Door Ajar one (not applicable to anything but a PM or MP). I think on the right mix of computers, almost everything in the folder gets used now....

The Airport in / out range one never shows up on my laptop, and the ajar one never shows on my G5 even when I open the door as illustrated.

Mine's in the same location and I have 28 files in there. Like mkrishnan said, with the right combination of hardware you'd see those bezels. I have some very interesting ones related to the Apple Remote on mine even thought I can't even use one.

I don't understand the ajar one at all.

The "ajar" image is for the clear air baffle panel that is in the G5s.

Also, there are images for *bluetooth* keyboard/mice from Apple and the Apple remote.

The rest are really for sound, image brightness/contrast Airport.

What is the big mystery? There is only *one* version of Mac OS X produced that contains *all* bits for *all* Apple hardware that version supports. So, of course, there will be images for all the stuff you may/may not have on your particular Mac.

Mucking around in the System folder leads to problems later on when you try to install a security or system update. Stay out of there, there are no user-servicable parts inside /System.
