change the 3D Dock in a 2D Dock (Mac OSX Leopard)

by

One week ago I installed Leopard. Well I am quite happy. There are some disappointing bugs, but I hope they will be fixed soon. (like my beloved python does not compile and mplayer from macports works only with disabled SSE and MMX).

Another thing was the 3D Dock. I find it a little bit ugly. So if you want to change it to 2D, here’s the trick.

open a terminal an execute

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

You can undo this with

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

 

have fun
