I find that with some wallpapers, the Dock that ships with Leopard can be way too bright and stand out more than desired. How can I change the appearance of the Dock?
I've also had problems with the default Leopard Dock. If you use the following commands in the terminal, you can get a different, 2-dimensional dock:
coputername:~ user$ defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES coputername:~ user$ killall Dock
If you change your mind, you can restore the 3-dimensional dock with the following commands:
coputername:~ user$ defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO coputername:~ user$ killall Dock
