    That is awesome! But where did you find the actual background? Maybe you could post some instructions on how to do that because I tried to create a Star Trek-themed desktop but failed totally…
    Keep up the good work!

    "Captain's Log, Stardate 16254.7.. There is nothing to report from my mother's basement,"

    I'm sorry, but I couldn't resist.

    Awesome! Good work!
    I have one (really minor, finishing-touch-type) suggestion: find an LCARS font and use that instead of what you're using now.

    thanks for the comments (at least some of them), this was my first attempt at doing this, i think i'll try to make some improvements to this one and see if i can make it any better

    anyways, if you want the base picture here it is:


    I didn't make it, just found it online

    Seriously, I want this desktop.

  10. MacTipsPodcast 72 months ago | reply

    I will be forever in your debt, if you would be so kind as to post a full tutorial, with the scripts you used.

    That is amazing!

    Oh my! This is a dream come true.

    My assignment: make this on my Mac.

    And then, I guess, on my wife's and my daughter's, otherwise, they'll harrass me…

    Hmmm, hard at work, here. :o)

    Kinda hard for someone who only knows where the Terminal application is located in the Utility folder… ;o)

    Can we hope some tutorial or maybe just the command lines needed to activate some features in GeekTool?

    And what is this Lynx you use for weather?

    r0ssar00 : Great suggestion…

    Anyone knows where a nice looking Star Trek TNG font can be found?

  14. HerbalRemedies 72 months ago | reply

    The LCARS font is called Swiss911 UltraCompact... Well, at least thats the closest one I've found so far.

  15. Lucas Young 72 months ago | reply

    I think Helvetica Ultra Condened is used as well.
    Also keen to see the instructions on how to set this up :)

    Momoses, is there a way you could bundle the apps, scripts and image so that one with no experience could open the zip, install the files and be good to go?

  18. mikeflashenberg 64 months ago | reply

    Hey is there any way you could send how you did this.. i am absolutely blown away by this and have to have it. I am decent with computers but probably not nearly to the extent that you are.. if you could send how you did this i would be forever greatful
