10.5: Add a 'recent things' stack to the Dock
Authored by: diskostu on Nov 16, '07 11:11:13AM
I used a similar command:

defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add '{ "fan-data" = { "list-type" = 1; }; "fan-type" = "recents-tile"; }'

So I replaced "tile" by "fan". After "killall Dock", my Dock was gone, even after a clean reboot. Any idea? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ah, I figured it out by myself. In case anyone has the same problem, just type

defaults delete com.apple.dock persistent-others

and the Dock should appear again.

A restart brought the dock back. But not with the recent items stack. I'm going to try again...

The same happened to me but a restart didnt bring it back.

I tried to use some newer code from lower down the thread but when I do "killall dock" it says "No matching processes belonging to you were found"

No I have no dock or dashboard or expose or alt+tab or active corners...

Please help

My suggestion would be to either reset the dock by erasing ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Dock.plist or pick an older version of it using Time Machine, then doing a killall Dock in Terminal.
