Minimal Tabs by samkingphoto Minimal Tabs by samkingphoto

EDIT: You can now get a bowtie theme to match: [link]

Minimal tabs is a wallpaper I created to fit my geektool and icon setup. It also includes a bonus custom Google Dashboard widget. It does what it says in the Preview.

Here's a screenshot of the wallpaper and widget in action: [link]


For the wallpapers, edit the .psd to suit your resolution and what not, then save it as an image file and then set it as your desktop background (pretty self explanatory). For the widget, just double click it and it will open in dashboard. It won't overwrite the existing google widget.

To get it on your desktop, open up Terminal and copy and paste the following and hit enter;

defaults write devmode YES

Now open up Dashboard and click and hold on the google widget, then exit dashboard without unclicking the mouse and now you have it on your desktop and you can move it wherever you want.

The wallpapers were soley created by me. You may modify the .psd file to get the desired result, however you may not release your modification without contacting me first. I don't own the widgets. They were created by Apple. I simple modified the images and some of the code. Therefore you may not re-release or modify the images used.

Have fun with it though and I look forward to seeing it action.

Love the desktop. Must be doing something stupid, but I can not drag the google dashboard widget to move to desktop - How are you exiting dashboard? I've tried dragging out, and hitting the dashboard key - just can't make it work...Can you help me out please?

Thank you so much for sharing this awesome wall and widget. I have a question for you. I have installed the widget but the corners of my Google search bar are round and not squared like pictured above. Here is an example of what I am talking about. [link] Do you know how I can fix this? I seen several shots lately using your widget and they have their corners squared. Thank you for your help!
