10.4: Remove the alias badge arrow in Tiger
Authored by: JimAkin on May 02, '05 01:47:10AM
Thanks jchapman! Good sleuthing on the location of AliasBadgeIcon.icns in Tiger.

Like the poster that most recently preceded you in this thread (nearly a year ago), I had trouble switching permissions on the file using the Finder's Get Info pulldowns. Rather than following arun's advice about changing (and unchanging) permissions for both parent folder and file, I fired up Terminal.

Since the procedure isn't detailed anywhere in the thread, here's what to type in Terminal:
cd /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources
Hit Return, then type:
sudo mv AliasBadgeIcon.icns OldAliasBadgeIcon.icns
Hit return again, enter admin password at prompt, and it's done.

Thanks again.
