Does anyone still have a copy of the iLeopard theme that goes with Kameleon? I lost mine and hope someone would be willing to send it to me. Thanks.

You have to wonder about a developer whose .dmg installer opens as text in a browser.

I must write that book "The Idiots Guide to Software Distribution".

It would include dumb names or acronyms that don't match the application name, oddball archives, instant decompression that leaves you with NO archive, no instructions, no explanation of the software ("I know, so you must"), peculiar and awkward registration, pugly interface and icons, manuals in Amharic, no manuals, dead links, etc, etc.

I've had no trouble with it. I'm not involved with it. If anything, I had high hopes for Facade, but that project seems dead in the water. As for whether Kameleon steals themes, well, I assume that themers have copyrights and can always file lawsuits if those are infringed. I still see lots of sites (including MacUpdate) that offer Shapeshifter themes for free. How is one to know if a theme has been stolen?

Sounds as if the only people interested in this Krapmeleon is those that are involved in the project. Again if themers wouldn't theme, you're program would be useless and no one would buy it. So unless you are giving back to the theme developers, you are stealing from them.

If Kameleon even worked well (It doesn't) I'd not even use it because of this.

I successfully ran Kameleon after updating to 10.5.5 and it seems to have worked normally. I was hesitant to do this after all the reports of Kameleon causing crashes on the new version of iTunes, but since I had a fresh backup, I gave it a shot. So, if anyone else was waiting to let someone else try it first, here you go.

I do like it.

It was included in the last MUPromo Bundle and works OK in 10.5.4. If you go to Kameleons website it says, that Kameleon 2.0 is on the way.

So for those who use iTunes 8, maybe that one will work?

There is so many bad comments on this app that I'd like share my experience. I got this app as an extra from MuPromo bundle (Back to School). I had also trouble with the first reg code, but the second one worked just fine. I installed Kameleon, Disingenuous theme, both to System and iTunes. iTunes was prior to 8 (7.x) - I intended not to upgrade to iTunes 8.0 because all the crashing experiences people got. But - I forgot I had downloaded (but not installed) iTunes 8.0 with Software Update days before... So when I booted my MacBookPro, iTunes 8.0 got installed! I can tell you that I was really surprised that everything still worked just fine - even iTunes 8.0. Actually new Kameleon skin looks very nice! I don't know what causes the crashing problem all the other people got, but mine works flawlessly. Maybe it's that I installed Kameleon first and iTunes 8.0 (34) after that. I have a myriad of other programs installed and started at login, so it's not a question of "clean" system - far from that. ;-) I have Leopard 10.5.4. I suggest that the developer of Kameleon should check the installation issues if there's something wrong with that...
...
All I want to say is, that Kameleon works just fine with iTunes 8.0 - if the right conditions (?) are met! ;-)
