Among the Mac Os X desktop customization tools available, GeekTool is my favorite one. It is a really neat utility that will allow you to run little scripts or “geeklets” to display useful informatiom such as RAM, CPU usage, calender , images and etc. on your Mac’s desktop. Here are 5 good examples of Mac desktop customization using GeekTool. Click on the images for a larger preview and follow the links for downloads ans setup configurations.
Portal 2 Themed Desktop
This beautiful GeekTool desktop, inspired by Portal 2, uses the SOG theme we previously covered on our 5 Best Mac OS X Themes. The wallpaper, icon set and GeekTool scripts for the desktop setup can be found on its creator deviantArt page. (more…)
Want to turn your MacBook or Mac desktop into an iPad? Yes it’s practically not possible because you won’t get the touch screen, but by using Flurry icon set you can bring the simplicity of an iPad to your desktop.In the above desktop customized by Ace Convict the Finder is disguised as Safari and the Trash is disguised as the iOS App Store (may look weird though!).He used Nocturne menubar for the top dark menu of his MacBook Pro running Mac OS X Lion. Other simple tweaks used were enlarging the dock and organizing the desktop icons on a grid.
