    Hi Everybody !

    Maybe someone can help me ....

    I was trying to customized my dock. I downloaded some app. from apple like Candy Bar, Dock Library, leopard dock app. Unfortunately none of this app were able to change my dock ( i tried thousand of times) , in fact, I cant even go back to the original.. looks horrible and without any of the formats it used to have . I went to system/library/coreservices/dock/contents/resources, and i try to modify it from there but I couldn't . I also, noticed that I can only read this folder ( i'm the only user of my computer) I checked the my account and logged as an Administer user. What can I do to go back to the original or be able to custom my mac ?:confused:

    If the answer isn't in the other thread, the only other thing I can think of (if the programs you used don't have a restore function) is to make a new account and transfer your stuff over.

    I'm not sure about 10.5 Leopard, but on 10.4 Tiger, you can't move the dock like that.


    The only options are to adjust the physical size of it, and add/remove icons to make it a comfortable size.


    Not sure why you'd want to move it unless you want to get iTunes controls squeezed in there, but there are apps that can place controls in the task bar at the top or in the dashboard for easy access.

    I you want to customize your dock, you can just edit the "scurvex" image files

    Well, customizing your dock ****ed me over big time. I couldn't open the apps on the dock. I had a nice looking dock, but i had to reinstall my OS and lost pretty much all of my files. Hopefully, you will have better luck.

    Hello.


    I use a program called Docker click here It customizes your dock. You can change color background. I would highly recommend docker. :) Its free
