hide and minimise the dock
Authored by: dirtymouse on Mar 19, '06 11:56:44PM

I made this simple Applescript to write the dock prefs to make the dock close to invisible and out of the way.

cd ~/Library/Preferences/
defaults write launchanim -bool no
defaults write magnification -bool no
defaults write autohide -bool yes
defaults write orientation -string top
defaults write pinning -string end
defaults write tilesize -int 16
defaults write mineffect -string scale
kill `ps awwx | grep Dock | grep -v grep | awk '{print $1}'`

script is available here:

You can revert your settings with a backup that the script makes
