Thanks for letting us know, Mac007. All of the links were 404, so I've disabled the listing.

It may not be of any help, but Flavours (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/47496/flavours) is more-or-less the successor to Magnifique. As you might suspect, Flavours isn't going to run on an older operating system: it requires OS X 10.7.3 or later.

Anyway, thanks again for the heads-up.

Man, I know what you are going through, I had the exact same.

I connected by SFTP from my Linux desktop to my unusable MacBook Air, moved Magnifique to the MacBooks Airs desktop, went back to the MacBook Air, started Magnifique from the desktop and uninstalled the theme. Magnifique dutifully restored all original settings and all was well again.

It seems very likely to me, that Magnifique is not compatible with OS 10.6.2.

Looks like another theme app has bitten the dust. Posting on web site for Magnifique indicate project on hold and app not to be used for Snow Leopard..maybe we see some theme options in 10.6, but somehow I doubt it.. why is theming so diff on Mac? and why do we need all the Apple eye candy [which i detest]??

Because we like eye candy? Why do Windoze users get to choose from among a variety of themes but not Mac users? I for one like variation in my computer interface. I've used Mac since the days of black and white. Then we went to gray scale. For years we begged for color. Now, we have what is touted to be superior graphics capability, and everything is gain in gray scale. How boring.

Ok it isn't a problem, I have a copy bootable of my HDD.
But, at the moment I am using Aqua Inspiriat 2.1 and I like it . . . .
Thanks anyway, Maurizio.

Magnifique DOES have an uninstall function built in. The problem is that the theme creator writes the uninstall script, and sometimes its not complete. But there are some cases in which the script is fine, but your particular setup or previous modifications may complicate things. In any case, with app mods, its hard to be perfect.

If you want to avoid risks at all, just do not install "custom mods" (leave it unchecked), and just go with the Main system (window) theme which is handled by the app and not a developer written script, so its very safe and very easy and fast to uninstall.

Please tell us what theme you applied that caused this. We take these sorts of matters very seriously, and any theme that causes problems will be removed from the repository immediately. I can help you get things back to normal.

As Mr.ABC wrote this application is completely destroying the original Leopard theme. All my windows preferences are gone, no possibility to restore them in a simple way... :-(

so unsafe, unstable, it is practically impossible to go back to the original leopard theme (had to resort to the forum, and it took me about an hour to figure it out). there really should be just a button to click to cancel the changes made.
real disppointment. maybe i'll give it another try when a major update is made.

Did you try installing the theme "Original Leopard r2" from the website? It looks like it is supposed to replace anything changed with stuff that matches the original appearance of Leopard.

Hi,

I am the developer of this application. For those who are having issues going back to the original Leopard. This is not something that is caused by Magnifique itself, rather a theme you used. This can also be caused by a system that was premodded before using Magnifique. As for restoring back to the original look I suggest 3 options:

1) Use the "Uninstall" button if you haven't already done so
2) Try using the "Original Leopard r2" theme available from our repository (this is the original Leopard look)
3) Download iLeopard from here:

http://littlekiwi.co.cc/Download/iLeopard%202.1.2.dmg

And then install the Uninstaller.pkg package.

I hope this issue is resolved :)

I think that this is not the way to resolve the problem.
The solution is to allow to the original Leopard configuration to be more available from the OS.
I think that ShapeShifter worked like this.
Many Skin of Magnifique definitely modify the Native configuration.
I find particular of preceding Skin of Magnifique mixed with others of different Skin.
The only way to return to the Native condition will be the Recovery, even if I have used the procedure n°3.
Enough an only time and Leopard it won't be more native.
Es.: the icon of Spotlight and the icons colour of some functions of the toolbar of mail, what I have noticed yesterday.
I think Milk and Inspired (?) 2.0 . . . .
