Aspire One Logo in OS X

Posted on: February 22, 2009

I have recently upgraded my AAO to Leopard and am quite happy with it. Unfortunately my MacBook thinks it’s a Mac Pro and shows the icon accordingly in my shares list. It’s a small detail, but I don’t like it. I have created a small icon to solve this problem.

The following will change the Mac Pro icon of your AAO on the client side and as a consequence all Mac Pro’s will show as an AAO.. All instructions are to be followed on your other macs running Leopard, not on the Acer. (blank line means end of command, so two lines below each other are part of the same command)
1. Download the icon.zip as attached to this post. Unzip the file manually if needed.
2. Open the terminal and enter the following commands.

mv ~/Downloads/icon/Acer\ Icon.icns ~/Downloads/icon/com.apple.AAO.icns

sudo cp ~/Downloads/icon/com.apple.AAO.icns /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/

cd /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/

sudo cp com.apple.macpro.icns com.apple.macpro.icns.bak

sudo cp com.apple.AAO.icns com.apple.macpro.icns

3. Reboot

Please be careful with the commands in the Terminal: if you don’t understand what you’re doing you might be at risk!

hello, i saw your post on the aspireoneuser.com forum’s about installing OSX on a 8gb SSD

how did you go about doing that? large USB stick? or external CD/DVD?

oh another question, have they got the built in wireless working now for OSX?

Just passing by.Btw, you website have great content!

Mark, I used a USB disk to which I restored the install image.

Thanks

So is this same procedure as Ron’s TinyXP with GHOST?

boot with the USB

load ghost

then plop the ghost image onto the other drive?

That would be easy
