Try it with a custom Terminal!
Authored by: mistersquid on Jan 22, '07 09:37:06PM

Your instructions don't work for me. When I open VisorTerminal.app, it has no dock icon, no application menubar, and no trace in the Tab-switcher. This makes it impossible to activate the modified Visor.bundle.

That's the point of the VisorTerminal tip. It's to have a duplicate copy of the Terminal always running in the background without taking up space in your dock. Visor won't run by itself; you need to have Terminal running first. If you're not the type who has Terminal running 24/7, it's handy to have the transparent VisorTerminal always accessible through Visor by hitting the hot key without having to start Terminal first.

You're not grokking what I'm saying.

The copy, VisorTerminal.app, HAS NO MENU INTERFACE, which means I can't enable (the modified version of) Visor in the first place. In other words, it is impossible for me to make use of VisorTerminal.app because there is no way to activate Visor.

The instructions cannot be followed.

Hi, I've not gone through the above instructions, but I've succeded using the instructions below. With those instructions the small dropdown-menu appears as usual.
