    Just recently I followed some instructions on this forum to make my dock just the icons without a background/back drop. Now I tried to change the dock and it doesn't work. How do I revert back to normal?

    Thanks

    Can you link to the instructions? Maybe one of us can try to back track it.

    According to a post in this thread:

    I've not tried this so I cannot attest to it's effectiveness.

    That's not going to get the files back that he either deleted or modified in order to remove the "background" as he says.

    I recommend you download the original files here:

    http://www.leoparddocks.com/download/OriginalDock.zip

    and put them back in "Resources" folder as noted below:

    Go to Macintosh HD > /System/Library/Core Services/

    Right-Click on "Dock" and select "Show Package Contents"

    Go to /Contents/Resources/

    Once complete open terminal and type

    killall Dock

    and hit "return"

    Next smack yourself in the head for not backing up your original files before modifying anything.
