Hide any program's dock icon
Authored by: divine on Feb 17, '08 12:09:49PM

This doesn't work for me at all for several reasons I guess...

First of all I'm running on Leopard 10.5.2 which is more than you can say about the guys in the other posts...

My main problem is pretty simple the code that you guys tell me to implement is already there, just as you guys typed it, but the icon is still present in the dock..!?

And the Dock Dodger App is worthless !!!
I've tried using it and so far it has only been able to remove itself from the dock :/

Everything else stays the same, even after a reboot..

So basically what I'm asking for is if anybody has a solution for this? :D
Feel free to PM/Email me if you do :D

Are you sure the value is set to 1?

I'm running 10.5.2 as well, and I just used this hack for MenuCalendarClock ... works like a charm

I'm having the same problem on OS X 10.5.3. The fix recommended here is well documented by Apple, and I've found a ton of references to it throughout the web.

I'm moving the file after editing the info.plist but before running it. I'm using the Property List Editor that ships with the Xcode tools, and setting the property (as text) to "1".

I must be missing something. Can anyone recommend any troubleshooting ideas?
