Spaces in Tiger?

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried ripping the Spaces extension and app from Leopard and installing in Tiger. VirtuDesktops is poopy compared to spaces.

I tried messing around with it for a bit.

 

What I see now is that it looks like the expose.prefpane file is going to need to be edited for it to work with tiger.

 

 

The expose file that comes with leopard will not work with tiger, Looking at the source of it, It looks like it requires 1.5 or higher to even run and install.

Spaces seems more built into the system than just an application, and judging from what Josh2022 just said, I think it's very unlikely it'll work in Tiger.

I continued looking into it, I doubt it will be hacked into Tiger any time soon. Here is why.

 

 

If you drag and drop "spaces" from Leopard Applications to Tiger, and then open it, It will bring up Tigers Preference Pane, But ofcourse, there is no where to modify Spaces on Tiger.

 

Then, If you 'install' expose.Prefpane(Leopard) on to Tiger's Prefpane, It will install, on the System Prefs plane it will say "Expose and Spaces" when you goto open it though, It will not open.

 

From what I see sofar, It is not possible to run Spaces with out the help of the Prefpane file

I don't thing any of the installs will work. I tryed to install them after removind the "InstallationCheck" and it worked. BUT THE APPS WOULDNT OPPEN!

It is probably built on the new frameworks that were mentioned at WWDC. If anything, I highly doubt that Spaces will be available for Tiger unless Apple releases it, otherwise, it will most likely never happen.

i should sue apple for stealing my name but hey i like what heir doing with it.

 

i tried it installed fine but cant open it. I think it depends on the new framework leopard will be using.
