Is there a way to have only icons and not the grey part of the dock in the dock?
That would be cool.
Sorry, that doesn't really help, does it.
Yeah there's a freeware app called Cleardock. Search for it in versiontracker and it should com eup.
Sorry to jack the thread, but I have the opposite question. Is there any way to make the icons or the text on the Dock not show up, even when the applications are running? I still want the gray bar to be there, though.
Yes, I believe you can set that in your preferences, but I'm not in front of my Mac right now. Stupid Windows machine!
It's probably in your Dock preferences, or in your account prefs
Woof, Woof Dawg
That'd be news to me.
Anyway, there is one called cleardock and another one, just look on versiontracker.com as suggested. Me personally, I'd stay away from those haxxies as far as I could. Had nothing but troubles with it, messing up my fonts etc. But do as you please.
Transparent Dock does what you want to do.
What would the purpose be of a blank grey dock?
(Just trying to understand your request)
Yeah, it's only ajustable in 3rd party apps.
I've been using Cleardock and Transparent Dock for a few months now, and both have been fine ('cept a Tiger update broke one... I forget witch).
I guess I was just unlucky but it messed up my entire fonts system-wide to the point where only a reinstall helped. That's why I stay clear of those hacks now.
If you want to use an app to make your dock clear I strongly suggest using ClearDock over Transparent Dock. I started with TD and it corrupted my dock completely that I couldn't launch apps and couldn't modify the colours, background etc (had to reinstall from backup, not cool). Now using ClearDock and no problems. ClearDock apparently doesn't change the original system files but runs on top, so it can be more performance heavy than TD, but I haven't noticed it running at all.
Bottom line: ClearDock
I'm not sure that I understand exactly what you mean, but this is what I'd do:
Take a screenshot of your desktop, and put it into an editor
Where the dock is, select the area and fill it grey
Set this as your desktop picture
Turn 'Automatically Hide/Show Dock' On
Hope this helps
Use ClearDock over TD, it's made by Unsanity, which is the only haxie company I trust enough to use.
