The file size for image previews should be no larger than 500 KB

Images linked externally should be no larger than 3 MB

* Off Topic Posts will be edited or removed. Please support our rule set no matter how yummy you think your desktop is.

* The desktops thread is not to be used as a means to post images of a pornographic or otherwise provocative nature. We do not support a babes forum and neither will we in an unofficial capacity. Please help to keep the thread relevant and safe to browse for everyone.

* The moderators of this forum reserve the right to edit or remove your posts as necessary so they may comply with our Community Rules.

* In the interests of keeping the thread on topic it is strongly urged that you format your posts in the following order:

Themes: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

Wallpaper: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

Icons: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

Programs: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

* Please use reduced-size thumbnails, where possible, out of respect for people running on lower bandwidth or screen resolutions.

Important Note: Any image posted that is over the established guidelines will be removed! Use a thumbnail or use a text link to your image. If your image is removed, this is why.

This is for everyone that asks for the wallpaper.

Most likely by replacing LucidaGrande.ttc. There is no method for actually changing system fonts. The method is replacing, and yes it makes all calls for Lucida Grande retuns wrong (aka the new) font.

Thanks! I got that much and I don't mind replacing Lucida Grande completely but I found no explanation on how to port fonts, I have a .ttf I would love to have as my system font^^

Any idea how to make it into a proper .ttc?

A day early technically, but what the hell...

Mostly boring, but I felt like showing off my new install of Ubuntu. Finally just dove into the deep end by replacing Windows.

I doubt anyone will care, but the wallpaper is something I cobbled together a while ago. PM me if you want it.

The thread I linked should explain. There is also link to another long thread on MacThemes which has already ported fonts, .app, videos and all that good stuff. The porting isn't a problem, but merging the fonts (so all the extra chars Lucida Grande has are there) and alignment.

Knew I forgot something important, but for some odd reason I can't edit my old post. Thanks for the heads up Brando212.
