    I really like launchpad. The background is switchable to 4 settings using cmd+b. (black vs color and clear vs blurred) However every time I reboot it returns to the default setting (color/blurred).

    Can someone think of a terminal command to change the default setting? I couldn't find anything online.

    Thanks for the help

    I did a dump of all values from the 'defaults' command before and after changing the launchpad background. None of the defaults changed. This leads me to believe there is nothing stored in the defaults database that controls the background. Sorry.

    Try it yourself in the shell:

    $ defaults read > d1.out

    (change the lauchpad background)

    $ defaults read > d2.out
    $ diff d1.out d2.out

    There will be no differences assuming you don't change any other defaults.

    Wow I had no idea that the background is switchable. Thanks :)
