    So I have well mastered icons... need something else to change:D

    Any tips on dock changing, cool sites for downloading. I have seen some neon activity indicators that look fun.

    input please:apple:

    Open Terminal and run the following command:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES
    then:

    Code:
    killall Dock
    Change YES to NO if you don't like it. Don't forget to run killall Dock again afterwards if you switch back.

    SuperDocker allows you to change the look of the dock.

    i downloaded this.. put a spacer of some sort betweens apps and docs.. and i seem to be too retarded to get rid of it.. UGHH:eek:

    I even deleted dock prefs and it still didn't go away. Program says drag it, but all that does is change the size? any ideas?

    I am a tad ocd and little things drive me bonkers.. leave to me to be made to feel stupid by something so small.

    It costs money, but the bets icon/dock changer is Candybar.

    i have the trial of candy bar... it is a really nice program, my issue is I can change all the icons manually so what am I paying 30 bucks for?

    It back ups standard icons, and organizes all your icons.

    Did you give that defaults write com.apple.dock command a try? I for one love the 3d dock, but it's a great solution for those who prefer Tiger's 2d dock. ;)

    Downloads folder in the dock

    I have deleted the Downloads folder from the dock in my Macbook (OSX Leopard). I have tried to drag it back from Finder but it refuses. Any ideas?

    If i download a dock from somewhere like here http://www.leoparddocks.com/index.php which part gets dropped onto the doc in candy bar?... there are dozens of small parts of the downloaded file..

    I have candybar,liteicon and superdocker + I do alot of the icons manually... they all seem to have their unique purposes. Thanks for any input.

    Use DockLibrary to install the docks from Leopard Docks.
