    The reason I say this is because I like having a transparent dock and even though the 2D dock is nice, I would prefer no dock and to have everything floating. Before with an Intel Mac, I could have Mirage dock and that would be it and fine.

    However, I don't feel like having to find a paid solution to my problem so I found a better way!

    I downloaded Docker.app, GIMP 2.6.11 (I made a transparent png) and then created a folder for docker to use the images (the transparent image I created and copied and then renamed) for the dock images and I now have floating dock icons and it is very nice!

    Uhm…ClearDock?

    The link gets you the Unsanity ClearDock 1.41 DMG.

    I thought that used to be a paid app! If I'm wrong then fine but that was my main reason for not even considering that one this time.

    Nope. It was always a freebie.

    P.S. Just double-checked through the Internet Wayback Machine. Listed as a freebie.

    Even though there was an easier way, I think doing what I did was still pretty awesome. Yeah, it was and I'm going to stick with that even though I "might" download cleardock as well. Anyway, I'm going now.

    Oh, I don't deny what you did was awesome and cool! ;)

    You got the result that you wanted. And if it helps somewhat, I'm not sure if ClearDock works on Leopard. It's been a long time since I've used it.

    I thought GIMP was a Linux distribution, apparently not. Idk where I got that thought from.

    You can make a transparent image with nearly any image editing tool, not only GIMP.
