Leopard-Style iTerm Icon

This article has been superceded. See here.

Speaking of iTerm, isn’t it about time we had an updated icon? I’ve cobbled one together using bits of the Terminal icon with elements from the previous iTerm icons. Not exactly original. Same concept as the old icon. It’s just more Leopardy now. Click it to download the .icns file. I recommend downloading the revised version below.

Let me know what you think.

Update – Dec 7

Here is an updated version that’s a little more balanced, and looks better at small sizes. Click it to download the .icns file.

    A little piece of me dies whenever I hit alt-tab and look at the stock iTerm icon. This one is much better.

    By the way, clicking the icon brings up the file in the browser window as garbled text instead of downloading it (at least in safari).

    @Mark - Glad I could help. And thanks for letting me know about the downloading problem. (It worked in Firefox. I probably should have checked Safari.) I’ve added a mime-type for it on my server. Clicking the link should work now.

About This Site

About the Author

That’s me in the photo above. My current profession is web development. Therefore, it is the subject of this site.


Postpostmodern is the name of this site and my alias on most of the web. There's nothing really special about the name Postpostmodern. I studied art in college during the years after postmodernism, and nobody knew how else to classify the state of things other than silly words like postpostmodernism.

Sorta Blogish

I'd call this a blog, but I don't feel it fits the 'log' format. My goal is to publish articles on web-related topics that interest me, and while some articles may be time-sensitive, I would prefer that the organizational focus be on the categories and tags rather than chronology.
