My problem was that somehow, a copy feature showed up. I don't know how, but I just x'ed that and then it worked fine.

On a completely unrelated note, and I apologize for the hijack, but how and where did you set that really neat icon theme for the Finder sidebar? Are the rest of your icons in that style? I'm very much intrigued

i mucked around and found out the finder (and nearly all icons) are just contained inside *.app packages as *.png files (normally 128x128) and you could replace them in the .app packages, delete an entry in your cache and relog in to change it to whatever you want.

The link to where I found these steps? I forget. It was honestly a lot easier than I thought it'd be, now my next hack is the apple button on the top left to another icon...

Ah, okay. I thought there was a supported way to change icon sets like in KDE. Just checking Thanks.

Out of curiosity, where did you download the icons that you used? kde-look.org? (Your avatar just makes me think you're a KDE kind of guy )

Okay, sorry. Another problem. . . I got it to just rename and I made it a plug-in. The problem is that it seems to rename them in the most random order. Is there a way to get it to sort all the files in alphabetical order and THEN rename them in that order?

You sure can There's a "Sort Finder Items" automator action. Just search for "sort" in the little spotlight bar in automator.
