I have tried with Candybar. I'll drag the new icon to iTunes and Safari, and apply the changes, but when the dock relaunches the icons don't change :S

I cannot actually recall where I sourced the wallpaper - deviantart.com I think, but cannot be sure.

Chris,

I didn't think anyone would twig that I am running a beta of 10.7;). Actually, even though it is a Siberian Tiger I thought it was great wallpaper. Call it artistic license, or whatever.

I really think Apple should use this (and some cat, this one would work) as the next box art for Mac OS X 10.7. Of course, that's just personal opinion but it looks uber cool.

@Chris I have found a neat Safari/FireFox/Chrome and IE Plugin (http://www.tineye.com/plugin) that once installed, if somewhere on the web you find a image or web page you like, right click it and go down to the Search Image on TinEye. This plugin searches over 1.6 Billion images and will come up wit a List and link to every page on the net that has this particular image in it. Try it out it quite cool. Every day they are building the data base, but find the image you like and try it.
Unfortunately the Homer Apple Donut didnt come up, but i thought i would share with you one of the best Plugins ive seen and i use it 10 times a day :)

Ok, I've been a member here for a few years, but I am only now getting around to customizing my desktop. Can anyone please help me identify:

1) The dock/icon set. Is the dock appearance/active application indicator accomplished solely with Candybar, or is there something else at work? And what is that icon set?

2) I have the iStat Pro widget already, but I like the appearance of iStat in the menu bar. Is it worth the purchase over the free widget?

3) What is the name of the clock/weather app on the desktop?

Sorry for the barrage of newbie questions. Many thanks!

1) The icon set is part of CandyBar. The indicators you can modify by going to:

Macintosh HD: System: Libary: Core Services: right click on Dock.App and choose Show Package Contents: Contents: Resources: find the indicator files. I change mine up every month- including the color of the Dock, which you find the scurve image files. My orange Dock (http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/os-x-operating-system/26500-post-your-dock-screenshots.html). I edited both the indicator lights and the scurve image files with ColorSync. It takes a bit of practice to get it right. As for those custom lights, I think CandyBar might still be the program to edit these, but I'm not sure. I like what Apple already has to offer for the dock lights.


2) The widget is good. I had the menubar, but it got increasingly cluttered. I switched to the widget on Dashboard

3) GeekTool. GeekTool is a load of fun if you're a bash (*cough* Terminal) user. There are a ton of sites through one Google search to find GeekTool commands. I turned mine off for next month (you'll guys will recognize this next month's wallpaper!!!) as it ruined the background.
