Another easy (and powerful) way.

Well, I've using ChimerIcon since it was first released for Chimera. And as you can imagine, I tried it on the first Camino I came across. Unfortunately, it didn´t work. However, here you are what you must do to get a customized Camino look:

1) Close Camino and launch ChimerIcon to build your own personalized theme, mixing icons from other themes.

2) Close it ;-)

3) Go to ~/Library/Application Support/ChimerIcon/Themes

4) Copy the folder "your-theme" to wherever you want (I used ~/Library/Application Support/CaminoKnight, explained below).

5) Delete the file info.txt inside the just-copied folder, since it is useless. Delete also any icon you don't want to replace.

6) Copy the content of the "your-theme" folder inside /Applications/Camino.app/Contents/Resources, replacing the default files.

7) Launch Camino and you'll see the new look.

It is even easier if you create a shell script. And combined with your crontab, this is very powerful. So, my setup is as follows:

1) I programmed Cronnix to launch CaminoKnight at 8:10 AM, so that I get the new and still-hot copy of Camino every day.

2) After that, also through Cronnix, I run the following shell script at 8:30 every day:

#!/bin/sh

ditto -v -rsrcFork /Users/ramiro/Library/Application\ Support/CaminoKnight/Ramiro /Applications/Camino.app/Contents/Resources

Just make sure you save the script with a .command extension, you give it execution permission, and you write the actual ditto command in one line (split here in two lines for legibility reasons).

This way, when I get to the office every morning, I have the most recent copy of Camino, with the look I like, waiting for me.
