Here’s a new desktop goodie for your pleasure. It’s a replacement dock icon for the popular Mac IM client Adium following the style of atebit’s excellent Tweetie for Mac icon.
While the Tweetie Mac icon (and it’s UI) was discussed quite controversial (which caused some very nice Tweetie replacement icons to appear, like here, here, here or here), I grew to like the style of it. But Adium beside Tweetie in the Dock just looked weird… (No offense, Adam ) So I redrew the whole icon and used Adium’s duck silhouette on it and made some obvious and subtle changes in comparison to the Tweetie icon. And thanks to Loren who kind of rubber-stamped this icon release.
The icon comes in various formats (iContainer, icns, png) in sizes from 512px-16px and as an Adium dock icon package. This icon package uses some more icons (just 128px each) for the different states of Adium (online, offline, alert etc.) and includes the application icon too.
Just head over to my Goodies page or click the following download button and grab this icon while it’s hot.

Adium Icon Usage
Just double click the Adiumeetie.AdiumIcon file and the dock icon gets installed automatically. Then you can select the icon in Adium’s preferences under Appearance > Dock Icon from the drop-down menu. After this the icon should be ready as your new Adium icon both in the Dock and in your Applications folder.
The icon is free for your personal use and I hope you’ll enjoy it. If you do, don’t forget to spread the word via Twitter and all your other favorite social media sites.
Oh, and for best look and karma you should buy a license for Tweetie right away
