10.7: Change the background effect in Launchpad
Authored by: Lri on Aug 14, '12 02:42:44AM

The shortcut was changed to control-option-command-B on Mountain Lion.

You can change the background style permanently with for example defaults write springboard-background-filter -int 3; killall Dock.

  • 0: no blur
  • 1: large radius blur (default)
  • 2: monochrome, no blur
  • 3: monochrome, large radius blur
  • 4: small radius blur

You can also change the blur radius. defaults write springboard-blur-radius -float 200 would set it to 200 pixels when not using a HiDPI mode.
