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/
sudo cp com.apple.macpro.icns com.apple.macpro.icns.bak
sudo cp com.apple.AAO.icns com.apple.macpro.icns
Please be careful with the commands in the Terminal: if you don’t understand what you’re doing you might be at risk!
