    My dock is in the right most corner of my desktop, I am unable to bring it to the bottom center.
    Even writing these commands: defaults write com.apple.dock pinning -string middle and killall Dock on terminal didn't help.

    Any idea how to fix this. [screenshot below]

    Sit slightly to the right of your computer, so it seems to be in the center? :)

    Trying using the same terminal command, but pinning it to the right, and then put it back in the center.

    So choosing "Bottom" in System Preferences doesn't work? Which OS are you running?

    Lion is having some trouble remembering preferences. I changed some gestures earlier tonight and now I am bring up Mission Control 8 different ways instead of just the one that is set. I had to change things for an hour to get it working right again. Maybe if you tried the command to move it to the left, then try -middle again it will take? I hope if you mess with it long enough it will kick in. That is what happened with some of my preferences.

    Sorry for the trouble, though. That would annoy the crap out of me.

    Also you might want to try changing it with the Secrets Prefpane tool. You never know, maybe it will save your changes where Terminal fails.

    Finally got it:

    Open terminal and fire this
    defaults delete com.apple.dock pinning and killall Dock
