Metal Muku Mod for Metalik
I love the old Metal Muku [link]
theme by Jesse Dodds [link]
and I have been trying to port it to Snow Leopard ever since I got off of 10.5. Since Metalik by Monsieur Julien Sagot [link]
is similar in some ways it has proved a great place to start on my quest to pull together a Snow Leopard compatible Metal Muku port. This download is a "Metal Muku" ThemePark file as well as the titlebar control resource PNG file. Install Metalik (which I highly recommend) and then this Metal Muku update to get that classic old Metal Muku look. If you use this then make sure you also get the matching iTunes 9x [link]
or iTunes 10 [link]
Metal Muku themes and maybe even my Flocked Finder Backgrounds [link]
which go well together.
- Get/run ThemePark 4.x [link]
- Apply the ThemePark file (this adds the menubar too)
For just the traffic Lights
- Open your ArtFile
- Select the last set called "titlebarcontrols"
- Click on one of the resources & pull down the Edit/Select All menu
- Drag-and-drop this PNG onto the middle/bottom little window showing all resources together
- Apply and log out/log in
This will make your Metalik theme look like the old Metal Muku. This includes the smaller window size controls too. All credits and thanks go to Daisuke Yamashita [link] for the original Muku design in 2006 and Jesse Dodds [link] for Metal Muku and permission to work on this mod and Monsieur Julien Sagot [link] for Metalik and his kind permission to start with his theme. There are elements from Inset: Dark by theBassment [link] in the ThemePark file which I did not realize at first so I also want to give credit and a special thanks because Inset Dark is a very cool mod that I love and highly recommend to anyone on Snow Leopard.
