24 Oct Ditch the Glass Leopard dock with a few keystrokes.
Category: Design, How-To

Michel Jansen, fellow Dutch blogger, uncovered a system setting to use the new “on-the-side” Dock on the bottom too (which a lot of you asked for in my last post).

Open Terminal.app and enter;

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES; killall Dock

Before and after images at the source. Thanks Michel!

    In stead of killall Dock, type:

    osascript -e ‘tell application “Dock” to quit
