10.7: Get colored sidebar icons in Finder
Authored by: paulduv on Oct 31, '11 03:52:56PM

jsumners, could you provide a bit of information about this solution? Installing the plist: I assume I save that text in a plain text file? Activating it: do I do anything to activate it, or does it run automatically on restart? Thanks in advance!

10.7: Get colored sidebar icons in Finder
Authored by: jsumners on Nov 01, '11 06:48:35AM

It is a plain text document with the ".plist" extension. The launchd agent will process any valid plists in ~/Library/LaunchAgents whenever launchd runs. That is, you don't have to do anything. Just put the file in place and the next time you login, and subsequent logins, it will be run.

10.7: Get colored sidebar icons in Finder
Authored by: scorpio-pp on Nov 01, '11 03:01:13PM

My problem solved as follows:

After putting the plist file in the LaunchAgents folder you must then Relaunch Finder to first show the coloured sidebar icons, then after a Shut Down, Log Out or Restart the next and subsequent Start Ups or Log Ins will always show the coloured sidebar icons in Finder windows.

Failure to initialise thus will result in no coloured icons being shown in subsequent Start Ups, Log Ins or Restarts.
