Leopardish kinda screenie by PoulNyrup Leopardish kinda screenie by PoulNyrup
Hi Folks,

Funny how the mind works: I thought I'd got the so-called perfect Leopard system up and running, with the right Leopard icons, skins, themes, bells & whistles etc. Then I went "Aaarrgghhh!!!", rushed out, found mattahan's absolutely gorgeous icon pack "Buuf Deuce", installed the iconpackager, and reflected a few of his png's for my rocketdock. I haven’t regretted it since…:)

Several times while piecing this together I said to myself “F**k this, I’m gonna uninstall everything and go back to XP Luna”… Ok - enough ranting, here’s the situation:

Shell remake: Chris Kite's FlyaKite OSX 3.5, reshacking by editing Resources folder & force-updating… [link]

1. Iconpackager theme & FindeXer icons: Buuf Deuce from mattahan / Nick Quaranto [link]
2. Firefox skin: VFoxFINDER2 Firefox Skin by VSDigital [link]
3. WindowBlinds: Taking neodesktop’s Leopard Glass 3.0 theme [link] as a starting point, I have taken bits & pieces from:

a. mrrste’s Leopard V [link] (scrollbars)
b. eamon63’s Leopard inspired xp wb PLUS [link] (special folder backgrounds)
c. Flahorn’s Jadaero 1.4 [link] (animations)
Blitzr’s Mac OS X Leopard 2.11 Final [link] (some font settings and other stuff)
d. VSDigital’s FF skin (lovely gradient-highlight of selected text)

4. Rocketdock: GooBack’s RTYR theme [link] (port of esXXI’s OSX RTYR Dock), Indicators (modded for Rocketdock) are also from GooBack (same link). Icons are Buuf Deuce [link] reflected with SirSmiley’s iReflector [link] The Microsoft Office Icon Pack is from cyberchaos05 [link] Stacks are as always Matonga’s Leopard Stacks Docklet [link]
5. Winamp: LlamaSutra from elralfaro [link] CAD skin: CarDboART Sleeve from OtisBee [link] (“Svantes Viser” is, by the way, one of the greatest Danish albums ever made... :))
6. ObjectBar: Taking RaatsGui’s Quicklook-inspired OB theme [link] as a starting point, I’ve nicked stuff from NanaJ [link] Gotier [link] , Shiftedx [link] & of course chaodam [link] “Finder” has Lucida Grande Bold, “File”…”Help” has Lucida Grande, the font in the drop-down menus is Consolas, and the font of the time/date is Gotham (a change/font we can believe in :D). The little icon to the right of “Finder” is a drop-down menu for some workplace app’s…
7: Explorer tabs: QTTabBar & QTAddressBar by Quizo [link] (only wussies need back/forward/up/down buttons… ;))
8. Explorer sidebar: FindeXer 1.1.0.4 from alianyn [link] (don’t know if the famous update will ever materialize, but 1.1.0.4 works fine for me…;)
9. Wallpaper: I use Stratification’s Dramatic Room PSD [link] (looks great with the RTYR dock), then throw my favourite wallpapers into it. At the moment, it’s manicho’s Plastic Stripes Arena [link]
10. Zoom Player: Leopard Quictime skin from RaatsGui [link] (Flight of the Conchords = Pure Class ;))
11. Cursor theme (slightly modded): Graphite Cursor theme by teft [link]
12. Font rendering: I’m trying out GDI++ (Find it @ Aqua-soft [link]). Web browsing looks magnificent, but using it for Office 2007 apps isn’t that great. Still tinkering with the effects…
13. Desktop Info by Glenn Delahoy [link] - a nice little app that uses about 6 MB, runs at low priority and displays on the desktop all the PC info you need to know at a glance. Works fine with dual processors as well…
14. USB Disk Ejector from “Quick and Easy Software” [link] (added as a shortcut to ObjectBar). I’ve often before had problems ejecting USB’s from OB, but this does the job pretty nicely (only for USB’s though, not other disk types)
15. Resize windows by Laszlo for Autohotkey [link] (compiled to .exe and run from startup): Using a lap-top, I often switch from my 1680*1050 screen at work to working on the lap-top screen (1280*800) itself. Being of slightly anal nature, I like all my windows to fall precisely on top of each other so as not to clutter up the screen. This app starts with Win+W (or whatever you want). You simply press the number of the window size you’ve configured in Autohotkey & the window snaps into the desired shape and position relative to the current screen settings.

Thanks to kinsemon/eamon63 & gvsb for their helpful advice @ HGUI...

Well, that's it. Happy skinning!

:)

One question. What font settings do you have on Rocketdock including shadow and outline values in the settings. Thanks

Regarding my rocketdock set-up: There's no text (except in the Stacks function, which is simple Lucida Grande... Are you sure you're referring to the Rocketdock...? :confused:

Thanks for your kind comments - btw. I really like your "The Young Stars" wallpaper.

Funny: I'd been using Nokia 6300 for a while as well, but switched recently to 6120... If you would like a pretty cool iPhone theme for 6300, let me know... :)

Hi Stinky9 - thanks a lot, & I'm a big fan of your icon work, especially Onibari! :)

Btw: great to hear from someone from Serbia - I taught a course in Measurement Uncertainty at the Tech. University in Belgrade back in '03 & came back several times since then to do some consultancy work, while living in a flat up on Vojvode Steppe. I really loved staying in Belgrade, going for walks in the city centre & by the river. Love to come back sometime... :)

That looks nice. However, for all the trouble one would go through and all the utilities one would have to run to achieve this look, I'd rather install OSX on my PC and turn it into a Hackintosh.

I really don't understand this obsession with recreating the OSX look on Windows XP; especially now that Vista is out and looks better than - at least comparable to - OSX.

PoulNyrup Featured By Owner May 5, 2008
Install OSX / buy a Mac??? Sacrilidge!!! That would take away all the fun in trying to mod one's XP system... ;)

I understand your point grusic, but a lot of this modding is simply "the thrill of the chase"... It's actually a lot of fun as well as frustration, and if you're going to have a crack at it, it might as well be something beautiful like Leopard...

IMHO, the aesthetics of Leopard leave Vista in the dust but hey, that's just me... :)

"Sir" (Guard whispering in a low, husky voice), "it's that 'Jazz' woman again. She says she wants to access your recent dA and retrieve classified information..."

"Is she armed?"

"Yes sir. And with high heels and pink mascara."

"Where is my wife at this moment?"

"The First Lady is in Arizona, sir"

"OK. Let her in. And draw the curtains."

:D :D

Hi Jazzie - the wall will be PM'ed to you shortly... :)

Hi ramsta,
