So I was fooling around with my dock trying to change its color so I saved, and then moved the original "Scurve" files to a different folder. After I put the new files in and did the "killall Dock" command in Terminal. My dock is now 100% transparent with a reflection and I cant change it back to original.
I tried moving out the com.apple.dock.plist but that just removed my customized dock and made my new one the same as before with different applications. Nothing is working for me and I need some help with resetting my dock.
Ps I tried moving things around and now i think my resources folder is messed up. Does anyone no how I can reset the entire CoreServices part on my mac?
I really appreciate the help because this dock is me off!:Angry-Tongue Screen shot 2010-12-13 at 10.05.25 PM | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Actually I like the 100% transparent. I would like to do that to mine.

Do you want to come over and do it to mine?

Move the original file(s) back where you got it/them. You didn't trash it did you?

When you delete a plist file, that's what it does... Sets everything back to default.
So if you've got your dock back to normal, then you'll now have to re-add whatever apps you want on it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
