Colorize the sidebar in Finder windows
Authored by: ryanmathus on Sep 27, '04 11:59:42AM

When I did the sudo killall Finder, my Finder didn't relaunch and still isn't relaunching after a restart. I'm trying to copy the backup of the Finder file back to where it should be so I can get my Finder back!

Hmm, that's odd -- it won't relaunch automatically, but it should certainly launch on restart. Mine restarted when I clicked the dock icon.

I suspect you may have deleted or added a byte to the modified Finder somehow...

Yeah, it was kind of scary! I got the finder back though by moving the backup one to /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/MacOS

Maybe I'll try it again later and see if it works. Thanks!

One can relaunch Finder from Force Quit menu as well. Pretty neat hint! And my first response :)

I tried doing that an option-clicking the Finder in the dock, and it still didn't want to relaunch for some reason. I eventually got it back to normal, though :-)
