Capsule Toolbar

Submitted By aikinai


This is another version of capsule style buttons like Mail and Preview. I used the template from Leo Lin's SilkAdium Toolbar, but replaced most of the icons with icons I took from Mail and Preview in Leopard. I left the old SilkAdium icons in places where I couldn't find anything else. Also it seems like some icons such as Safari are being taken from somewhere else and the icon in Resources doesn't affect the toolbar. I don't use it in my toolbar anyway, but I left the old SilkAdium icon in there just in case. I've also left the Leo Lin's template in case you want to make your own versions.

Right click on Adium in your applications folder

Click "Show Package Contents"

Copy all icons to "Contents > Resources"

Very nice! If you ask me, these should be the new default.

Agreed, this is a professional look, and fits awesomely into the OS X environment.

Great very nice on OS X Leopard. thx!

i agree! this should be the default. but maybe make something for Fonts too? you can use the one from Mail. i think it'd look nicer, cuz the fonts one is a good one.

I'll look again later, but if I remember right, Fonts was another one that's taken straight from the system and can't be overwritten (like Safari and iTunes). It's too bad they haven't made a regular framework to change these yet like everything else. Actually I'm not even using my own plugin right now because changing the application contents seemed to break it's interaction with the Keychain in Leopard : (

that's unfortunate, i'm so OCD it's throwing off everything!! lol

Why can't I download this? I lost it when I updated Adium and would like to download it again, but it's not letting me, saying it's been disabled...

# by aikinai on 08/17/08 at 00:49:55

Just this week I got an email from Adium saying that they disabled this extra along with all extras that replace default files inside the application. The problem is if you change files like that, it breaks the application signing in Leopard and then Adium can't get access to the keychain. I'm actually not using this myself because of that problem, but I figured it was still okay for people on Tiger at least.

If Adium ever creates an official framework to modify the toolbar, someone please comment here to let me know, and I'll remake this as a legitimate plug-in. Thanks for your interest and sorry it's not working right now!

Thanks for your reply. I don't know what access to the keychain thing means, but I realized that I backed up your toolbar because I liked it and had to keep downloading it (so I just backed it up). I have it, and re-installed it. Everything seems to be working just fine, like I can still login and chat.. I dunno what else the keychain does though..

# by aikinai on 08/17/08 at 01:04:02

For me Adium would never remember my passwords and I had to type them in every time to login (those are stored in OS X's "keychain"). And Adium told me they deleted it for a problem with app-signing so I figured it was that issue. Do you tell it to not save your passwords maybe? As far as I know, that's all it breaks.

# by ekologik on 08/17/08 at 01:32:38

I didn't fiddle around with any settings as far as I know, and just left the default. It remembers my passwords. No problems, and I've quit and opened the program at least twice since installing the toolbar skin. I'm running Leopard. I'll let you know if I find any problems though, but I don't seem to have any.

# by aikinai on 08/17/08 at 01:47:52

Hmm, that's good to hear it doesn't actually have any problems. I still don't think they will let me reactivate it though, since it violates their new rules.

# by ekologik on 08/17/08 at 01:48:37

they just didn't like that people liked your add on more than their default ;o) lol
