Awesome, got the job done. Fixed my problems with Safari and iPhoto because Themer Anche couldn't restore aqua to those apps.

Won't install. "Cannot install software to this disk. Null." The problem (I think) is in the installer app. Appreciate the effort to resurrect a valuable, unsupported app. PowerBook G4 / 800, OS X 10.2.6

Aquafix does not work under Panther. The developer is not furthering development under Panther. If you need to do theme modifications to Panther, first downgrade back to Jaguar using an Archive and Install, apply the Aquafix, then Archive and Install Panther over again. Unsanity's Shapeshifter is a compatible theme changer for Panther.

Err... This has always worked fine for me before, but I reinstalled my system last week, and having downloaded this latest version of Aquafix, it won't let me install it. I get an error in the installer saying "Cannot install software to this disk. Null." What's that about? I am using 10.2.6 on a G3/400 iMac.

UmarOMC: If version 2.0.1 worked on your MDD, this version will continue to do so. However, many people with MDDs have had nasty effects when using AquaFix. I don't know exactly which MDD setups are effected, so I have no choice but to recommend against it's use on any of them.

Now why the heck would version 2.1 not support MDD G4s? I've been using version 2.0.1 on my FW800 MDD G4 for the longest without fail with OS 10.2.6. Just seems a bit retarded.

Hey: This app is pretty awesome! It gets the job done and makes it really easy for people to fix or go back to their default aqua theme. Great app! Keep it up!

I'm in a bind. At some point in the past a theme screwed up part of Aqua so I'm not getting the upper-left-corner buttons on Carbon apps that are running metallifized. (My current theme is 10.2.6 approved, though.) I want to run AquaFix to restore the system and then reinstall the theme. But Aquafix tells me it's not approved for 10.2.6. Seems rather ironic there... Is it safe?
