com.apple.dock.plist
Authored by: maczac on Nov 15, '03 08:41:38AM

Simple Finder does not use the com.apple.dock.plist file. I also was trying to customize my youngest son's Simple Finder setup. Creating a customized dock, then setting the account to Simple Finder didn't work, as is did in Jag-U-ar (which btw is the proper British pronunciation).

I then created the customized dock, backed it up, set the account to Simple Finder, then with the terminal I replaced the "new" dock.plist, with the backed up one...this likewise didn't work.

My conclusion is that Simple Finder ignors the com.apple.dock.plist file since if you revert a formerly Simple Finder account to a normal account, you get the previous custom dock back.

The solution for this problem must be in the Finder itself. Or more precisely in the SimpleFinder files, but that is beyond my capabilities
