    Default Using Uno to make everything match

    Ok, this isn't anything new, just a compilation of stuff other people already did.

    I downloaded Extras2Extras2 from here

    And I downloaded Uno 1.2 and Ituno from here

    I got an Uno Firefox skin from here

    And blended it in with uno using directions from here

    So that is all you need to make this happen. But for anyone that needs step by step instructions, I give you the following:



    Mount the Uno and Ituno dmgs, right-click the Apps and Show Package Contents.

    Go to Contents/Resources, and find the rsrc files in each. Ituno has Itunes.rsrc and Uno has Extras.rsrc

    Move these somewhere, your Desktop for example.

    To apply Uno to Finder/Quicktime do the following:

    Open Extras2Extras2, and Click Convert a Resource File. Open the Extras.rsrc you just pulled out of Uno

    Save this as Extras2.rsrc

    Now navigate in Finder to /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/Resources/

    In there you'll find Extras.rsrc and Extras2.rsrc

    Copy both somewhere for safe keeping, you'll want this if you want to revert to normal Aqua

    Now, right-click them and Move to Trash

    Drag in the new Uno Extras2.rsrc you just converted, as well as the Uno Extras.rsrc

    Now Finder and Quicktime will be pretty on your next reboot

    To apply Uno to Itunes do the following

    Go to your applications folder, and right-click Itunes

    Click Show Package Contents, and navigate to Contents/Resources

    Copy Itunes.rsrc to some backup location, and drag in the file you pulled from Ituno

    This is all that is necessary, you can see your new Itunes once you run it.

    To apply Uno to Firefox do the following

    Install the Uno theme from the link above

    Go to the directions link, and download toolbar-bg.png

    Open a text editor (like TextEdit) and paste in the following:

    menubar, toolbox, toolbar {
    border-top: 0px !important;
    background: url("toolbar-bg.png") repeat-x !important;
    }

    Save this file as userChrome.css

    Put these 2 files in your Firefox profile folder
    ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/xxxxxxx.default/chrome/ the x'd will be different for each person

    Now Firefox will play nice with Uno, and everything will look sexy.

    Edit:

    If you use Adium X, and you want it to match as well, try Metal Adium X. It's a whole separate app, but it uses the same look as Uno, and is otherwise the same as Adium X.

    Edit 2:

    Added the step of copying the Uno Extras.rsrc along with Extras2.rsrc (Extras.rsrc affects programs launched w/ Rosetta)

    Real Edit 3:

    Uno 1.3 got released a while back, and it is now a Universal Binary. So there is no need to do your own conversion anymore. It also includes iTuno as part of it's installer. Uno 1.3 + the Firefox steps of this tutorial is all you need now.

    if you like to have Safari in the same style, just install Saft and in the preferences of Safari>Saft check the Aqua checkbox.

    Uno was originally just a hack to remove brushed metal, so if it's going to work with anything without any extra work, it'll be brushed metal apps.

    Safari is a brushed metal app, and is one of the first apps to take on the Uno look. If you know something I don't, feel free to actually explain why changing Safari to aqua does anything here.

    Otherwise I'd say suggest an edit, don't take it upon yourself to do it for me.

    Yes no problem:

    1. Because some people still have 10.4.3 today and when I first checked out uno a few month ago it did not do anything. But it is good to see it's working with x6 and as you wrote in edit3, it is unibin now, so it will probably work with old versions, too.

    2. Also many have Saft installed and may did not know about this simple feature, to just enable aqua. So I think this fits topic because the topic is all about aqua style, as long as it is the only 'skin' feature that is available atm. (themechanger and shapeshifter does not work with our systems)

    I see what you're saying, but Uno applies to everything, brushed metal and aqua. So changing Safari to aqua shouldn't change how Uno looks on it.

    And I think Uno should work on any ver now, since it's a Unibin. I only have a 4.6 install so I dunno.

    Who knows, either way the info is available for all now
