    so i've had my MBP for about 3 weeks now and i was glancing through the June Desktops 2010 thread and found this post. i wanted to tweak my dock into the same kind of style and i found Gill Sans Text Dock Icons through deviantart.

    after atempting to follow the instructions i was told to install CandyBar, which i did, and i was able to change some of my icons on the dock so i continued. well most of them didn't change, and after trying to mess around with it for a long time i'm just giving up but i have noo idea how to change the dock icons from the Gill Sans Text Icons back to the original OS X icons.

    can anyone help me!?

    if needed i can take a screenshot and upload it to show you my dock.

    HD/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist

    Pull that file out of there and place it on the Desktop.
    Restart. This will create a new default plist file.
    Your Dock should now return to the way it was when you first got the computer, assuming it was new.

    I hope that means it worked, not just that you appreciate getting a response.

    to be honest i was able to reset it a few minutes before i saw your response through setting everything back to default in CandyBar and logging out and shutting down my MBP a couple times, had that not worked i definitely would have done what you suggested:)
