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]??

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.

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 . . . .

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 . . . . . But this can help (from the Developer): 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 :)

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.

This is a nice theme changer--free, works as advertised, and has a nice selection of themes available. Just a heads-up on the Aqua Inspirat 2 theme (and probably any theme that includes app mods): back up any application that it's going to modify! The read-me included with the theme download tells you as much, but if you download from within Magnifique you won't see it. When I uninstalled this theme, it failed to remove some of its GUI modifications from Mail, and I had to replace the app bundle to get rid of them.

Please give us the old Jaguar 10.2 theme. Janther was the name of the old theme and I would love to have it work with Magnifique. Thanks for a cool program. We've been waiting something like this.

The next question is whether anyone will start porting their old Shapeshifter themes to this new approach. I hope so.

Solid and simple theme changer that allows you to quickly go back to your last theme if you prefer. I had my doubts that it could be this easy, but it is. Kudos!

What a treat to find this little beast - it does exactly what it promises: simple, free (although it'd be churlish not to make a donation). Score 1 for the good guys,

I wonder whatever happened to Kameleon (which is forever stuck in "I promise Version 2 soon" land) and Facade (which is forever stuck in Res-Excellence "I promise to be real some day" land). I for one plan to donate to Magnifique because, you know, I am actually theming instead of hoping.

This is a great first try on a Leopard skin/themes manager. It work as indented and changed my OS X with a great new look... and most importantly it returned my OS X to its original looks without any problems on "Uninstall Theme". On a side note I had already skinned the Dock and it was also restored to my own skin on uninstall. Minor bugs/change requests: - when applying a skin it would be great if the app automatically restarts Dock and Finder... maybe even smart by detecting what needs restarting. - not sure if this is a Magnifique issue or a theme issue, but in the darker themes text is not very visible in the window header or on the menu bar, is it not possible to change these font colors yet? - I found that a dark theme would not change the color of the menu bar. The problem seems to be that I needed to turn off translucent menu bar. Maybe this setting should be changed automatically. Again... Great work - keep up the good work!

Finally! The long wait has an end - Leopard can be themed now very easily. Magnifique works flawlessly for me and it really makes a difference for all eye candy lovers working with a Mac (and Leopard) :-)) LeMerlot
