View Full Version : iDVD from iLife 09 to Mavericks

04-26-2016, 04:16 PM

OK, so I'm something of a Luddite, I guess. I excuse myself because of my advanced years.....

The essential point is that I like iDVD, but whilst I have it on my machine (a mid 2011 iMac), a number of themes are greyed out. This, I find limiting.

I have the iLife 09 disk from my old iMac running Snow Leopard, and reading elsewhere, I have downloaded Pacifist.

Can anyone guide me step by step, please, on how I get the themes from this disk onto my iMac.

I really don't want to screw things up.

Be gentle with me...

If you have Pacifist, you can look for the themes.

- Open the DVD after inserting it into the iMac
- Copy the PKG installer file to your computer
- Unpack it using Pacifist

From there you'll have to probably hunt for the theme files.

But once you have them, you need to copy them here:

/Library/Application Support/iDVD/Themes/

Sorry I can't help you more in finding the themes.
