10.4: Change the Dashboard shelf's background image
Authored by: sahnert on May 02, '05 03:51:06PM

I tried this and it asked me for my admin password. So I entered it and then got the message:

the operation cannot be completed because because you do not have sufficient priveleges for "perf.png".

so what do I do?
can i just change the permissions for that one file or what?
thanks

change into the directory in your terminal.

cd /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources

then issue the command

sudo mv perf.png perf.png.orig <press enter>
<enter your admin password>

Then issue this command assuming your replacment pert.png is on your desktop

sudo mv /Users/yourname/Desktop/pert.png .

<press enter>

Don't forget the . at the end of the command.
