MacBook Pro :: How Can I Change My System Dock Icons Without Candybar?

I've been using Candybar but $30 seems way too much for me to buy. I know I can change the recycling bin and Finder with copy and paste but this doesn't work for iChat for example. Are there any good alternative programs or ways of doing this?

OS X :: How Can I Change My Dock Icons Without Candybar?
How do I change my dock icons without candybar? Every tutorial I find either only tells you how to make the icons, but never tells you how to swap icons, like the finder icon for example. (I want to make the pumpkin finder for halloween.)Anyone know of a tutorial that shows how to swap them? Or where these original icons are on the computer?

Applications :: Change Documents / Download Icons On Dock?
i've been using liteicon and to change my dock icons. for those who are familiar with using liteicon, im only able to change the finder, dashboard, trash empty/full, "url"??, and widget icons. these are easy to change with a simple dragging and dropping of the icon you want onto the icon you wish to change. but as for the other icons you may have put on your dock, im totally lost on. for an example, i've been trying to change my ichat icon, and ive read to click "get info" on the icon i chose to change it to, and click command + c, then go to the original ichat "get info" and click edit, then command + v (copy + paste obviously) and it's not working? i'm totally lost on how to change such icons that aren't listed in the liteicon application! the other question is how do i change the application/document/download icons on the dock? even through liteicon, i'm not able to change it. do i need a certain kind of file type?

OS X :: Dock Will Not Show Up After Using Candybar?
i just downloaded candybar. after changing some of my dock icons, i decided i didn't like them. so in candybar i clicked "reset dock", which apparently was supposed to reset my dock icons back to normal. now my dock is just missing. i have googled and looked throughout this forum and have tried everything everyone has suggested. i do not have a back up of my mac os x on time machine, so that won't work either. it isn't hiding, it's just NOT there! any help would be greatly appreciated. if nothing works, do you suggest going to the apple store i bought

OS X :: Finder And Dashboard Dock Icons Won't Change?
I'm using CandyBar to change the icons, and the Dashboard icon is changed under both System and Applications. In Finder it looks like the one I want to change it to, but when I move it into the Dock it just looks like the default icon. The same thing happens with the Finder icon. Any ideas? Oh and to change the iCal icon, is there any way to change the way the icon looks when you have iCal running? It just looks weird to have it look one way when it's closed and change back to the default when it's open.

OS X Leopard :: System And Trash Icons Gone From Dock?
This morning my trash icon in my dock was replaced by an eject icon for some reason. I restarted my iMac and that just caused it to completely disappear. I tried to restore my old dock (I had switched it out successfully a couple weeks ago) with Time Machine, but it didn't restore the icon. Then I downloaded CandyBar to see if that would help, and that just made my Finder icon disappear too!

OS X :: Dock Icons Missing - System Fonts Changed
All of a sudden I restarted my computer and the dock didn't show up and the fonts for the clock and battery were different. The widgets also would not show up. Also missing was some of the icons for random programs (applications, illustrator, pictures etc.) I am thinking I might have deleted some of the systems files? In safe mode the dock and widgets work and the fonts are correct however the icons are still missing.

Applications :: Cannot Change Icons In A System
I have went to /system/Library/CoreServices/ to reach the Finder icon for the dock. I replaced it with the icon I want (Replacing it) but it won't change. I went to terminal and typed 'killall Dock' and the dock does refresh, but it doesn't get the new icon. I tried Refinery, Candybar, .What's even weirder is the trash icon, I have also replaced it, but will only show the new icon if you put trash in it/empty the trash. Otherwise, it would still be the original picture

5. All picture can't be access, and the thumbnail icons was gone but I can open it via windows (bootcamp)
6. Its very slow every time I startup my macbook pro.
7. All fonts being smaller than before, like fonts at the menu bar for date & time, battery, about mac, etc.

MacBook Pro :: All Icons Dim But Safari On Dock
I have a roommate that gets on my mac that has Snow Leopard and has no clue how to do anything with a mac. Granted, I'm only about 6 mos into learning my mac myself, I finally ditched Windows. Either way, she did something to my dock where all the icons are dim (even folders) but the safari icon is bright. If I open any of the other programs the little light below the icon showing its open is there but the dock icon stays dim. Its almost like they're hidden? Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it?

MacBook Pro :: Dock And Folder Icons Disappeared?
basically i started my MacBook Pro up this morning and once i had logged on i attempted to close some programs and it vanished. I've tried restarting the MacBook Pro, terminal command "Kill all -KILL Dock' and killing the process via Activity Monitor. I have also noticed the MacBook Pro itself is slightly sluggish and the icons next to such things as 'home' and actual folders have disappeared.

MacBook Pro :: Horizontal Lines At Bootup (no Dock, No Icons, No Taskbar)?
Starting this morning, when I boot up my MBP, it seems fine through boot up, but when it reaches my desktop, the taskbar, dock and desktop icons never show up and instead I have horizontal lines across the screen.  I tried booting up from my external hard drive, but I have the same issue.  I can see the mouse and move it around and the desktop wallpaper shows up sometimes, but nothing else shows up.  When I boot up in safe mode however, everything looks fine. I have not upgraded anything anything recently, either hardware or software.

OS X Leopard :: Desktop Icons And Dock Icons Not Move Or Drag?
I cannot seem to drag any of my icons, files/programmes can be accessed by double clicking on the relevant icons, however they won't drag.

It seems like I cannot install new programmes or software either, perhaps related to the same issue?

OS X :: Changing Dock Background - Folder Icons And App Icons?
First off, I've searched the forums, but can't find an answer -- sorry if I missed something.Just got a new machine running 10.6.3 -- ugh, the dock and folders and so on look like clunky Windows junk :-(I miss my simple, elegant 10.4.11 dock ...I don't want to add novelty icons or that kind of thing, I just want a borderless dock that's semi-transparent or clear. And apparently all the apps out there to change the dock background don't work with Snow Leopard.I know CandyBar can help me with the folder icons and app icons, but as far as I can tell, not the actual dock background.

MacBook Pro :: How To Change Dock Style
Basically I changed my dock to look like it was wood, not the usual grayish transparency one. It all worked. However, when I moved it from the bottom of the screen to the right of the screen, it goes back to the original dock. And even if I then try to change it to the wood-like one, or even any other dock, it just doesn't change. I know, trivial, but it's just bugging me. Why?

The above is solved. However, then I went to try and find some replacement docks for 2D? If that's what you call it - but I can't find anything. What I have done is put the dock on the right hand side, making it 2D, and all I have been able to find searching the net are 3D replacement docks. Does anyone know how I can possibly change the dock when it's on the right (or left) side? I want to make it transparent, or at least a little lighter.

MacBook Pro :: Change Order Of Icons On Top Right Hand Corner?
I was wondering how to change the order for the icons at the top of the screen. I selected the option of not showing the battery status bar in the energy saver section. However, when I decided to add it back to the top, the order changed. This may sound strange but is there any way to get it back in the correct order.

MacBook Aluminum :: Any Way To Resize Icons In Dock?
I go to various sites and get Mac Icons. I have a Wall-E picture pack, comic book hero picture pack, etc. Except the icon they show on the download screen is so much bigger. When I put them in the dock, they're much smaller. I have seen Mac desktop shots online that users post and the icons are bigger. I have tried the sliders for the Dock and it barely does anything. Do I need to get a program to resize them?
