There are a few lines that make it incompatible on OSX and win XP 64bit. I have fixed this, but don`t want to give it out, since I should ask the original author first ( i have altered it quite a bit, not just a few lines). Basically check where it says "about- os" or something like that, there you would need to add OSX to the appropriate "if" statements

Oh ok so it's not working for osx and 64 windows. THanks.

I'm not sure if my limited knowledge could solve this "if" problem. I'll give it a try.

sorry, I can`t find the script right now. Just type this command in Maya:

about -os;

Take the result into this "if ( $os == "linux" )" or similar line and replace the result with "linux". The problem was that there is a transparent image used to get a border, but this trick didn`t seem to work under osx so I basically rewrote the UI, but maybe you can just kick out this image. If you post the script I could tell you what to edit.
