MacBook Pro :: Can't Restore Dock To Defaults

Jul 5, 2012

I installed DockDoctor a little while ago just so I could change the dock color based on the wallpaper I had. Well, I tried to change it again today, and it wouldn't move back to its default, nor would it change to any other colors. I restarted the dock several times, I deleted the com.apple.Dock.plist file and restarted it through Terminal, but even that didn't do the trick.

Info:MacBookPro, Other OS, Windows 8 Consumer Preview

OS X :: How To Restore Icons Back To Defaults

Nov 26, 2010

I recently changed the dock and most of the icons to custom ones and I would like to restore them all back to default. But since I no longer have the originals, I can't just copy paste each and everyone back. So how would I do this? I tried installing the combo updater hoping it would overwrite it all, but no go. I just found you can get info on an icon and then press delete or cmd+X, but it doesn't work on Mail. It erases the icon and gives me the generic "no icon" icon (white paper with writing utensils).

Mac Pro :: Volume Control Defaults Back To Internal Speaker After Sleep?

Feb 17, 2010

Set the computer to output to speakers, keyboard vol controls etc control the speaker sounds and "pop" out of the speakers.

Sleep the system and it reverts back to the internal speaker, even tho the output from iTunes, Quicktime or whatever comes out of the speakers.

Does this happen to anybody else?

OS X :: How To Restore Dock (Back To Normal)

Jul 17, 2009

I installed Cleardock [makes the dock transparent] and I tried getting rid of it by going into user/library/preferences and deleting com.apple.dock.plist. However now my dock is still clear but also reflective [see pic]. So then I tried to reinstall cleardock then uninstall it but that didn't work [I did a killall Dock to reset it]. I also read on a forum how to restore my dock to the default but that just gave me back the default application icons. So how can I get my dock back to normal! And if it helps I have time machine back ups from before my dock was like this.
