    Dear Folks:

    I'm okay with my 2D Leopard dock on the left side of the screen EXCEPT I hate the white outline. Anyone working on a fix for that?

    :rolleyes:

    You'll have to edit the picture files used to make up the dock

    e.g

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/bottom1.png

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/left2.png

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/right2.png

    + quite a few others, i would've done this by now if i took objection to it but i don't so i haven't.

    Yep, I did it to mine. It requires hacking the Dock application, so if you're okay doing that, do the following:

    1. navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices
    2. right click on Dock and choose "Show Package Contents"
    3. navigate to Contents/Resources/
    4. replace bottom1.png-bottom5.png (and right#.png, left#.png) with the images in the attached .zip file

    I have not yet figured out how to remove the semi-transparent dark background from the Dock yet. If anyone knows how, let me know!
