    Help with Customizing Categories

    Help with customizing categories would be great!

    I've tried searching but had no luck so far.

    In particular I'd like to change the loading screen (the gray folder icon with the "loading" text) for categories to something else. (Perhaps the apple spinning ball)

    Is there a folder I can ssh a custom image to or is it more complicated than that?

    btw, I'm using a customized OSX theme that does not skin categories at all.

    Thanks!

    Yes you can change it. I don't know the directory right off the top of my head but I can tell you that you can't make it something that moves (like a spinning ball) it is one still image. Sorry. I'll try and find that directory for you but I can tell you for sure that iNavMILK has a custom one, I don't have that downloaded right now though, maybe you can investigate for me.

    I found the categories folder that has the image used for the loading screen.

    .../Applications/Categories.app/Launcher/

    The file name is "Default.png"

    The problem is that no matter what I change the "Default.png" image to, the loading screen for categories' folders is still the original folder image.


    Either, I'm tinkering with the wrong folder or I'm not understanding how categories work.

    If the folder was "Games", then go to /Applications/Games.app, then change the Default.png there.
