Leopard Dock for windows

author alang

The wait is over, now you can get the shiny leopard dock on your windows. No, Apple haven’t release it for windows but few talented developers created themes for RK Launcher, Rocket Dock and Object Dock

You can get the Leopard Dock themes at our download section.

@ Joseph: You mean the wallpaper you can see in the Mac OS X Leopard preview? Get it here:

Another question:

Does anyone knows how I can use this skin with ObjectDock on the left side of my screen? Thanks in advance!

if you mean you want to put the dock on to the left side of your screen you have to right click on it and either say postion>left
or say dock settings and find the option.

Joseph could you give me a screen shot of your mac-mod-pc and tell me where you got the software from..

Please help me, i would also like to make my pc like a mac but all the software doesn’t work together very well..

for example- if you use flyakite software, you do not have the buttons on the taskbar(file edit view go window help) so i tried usind objectbar to put those buttons on but objectbar changes everything.
using objectbar you do not have the apple logo anymore ..etc.

@ Jalando, With objectbar, you’ll have to use a suitable theme to the Apple logo, etc. The theme included with it is pretty useless. You’ll find a good Tiger theme in the downloads section of this site.
Nico means that this dock theme has a problem with the dock on the left and how to solve that. He’s not asking for how to put the dock to the left.

@Jalando: From my understanding, you seemed to be using a trial version of objectbar, am i right? In order to use objectbar themes, you might need to purchase the original version.
However, you do have other alternatives though. You can try samurize. Once you downloaded and installed samurize, pls email me @ [email protected] and put your subject as “Jalando-request for samurize skin”. I will send you a tiger menubar mod packed with instructions asap.

i use objectdock plus, flyakite to change boot screen, logoskin and system icons. However, i used a leopard visual style, complete with leopard public beta’s wallpaper and objectdock skin. Email me and i will tell you more. =P

@NICO: you might want to nagivate to your objectdock’s background’s directory (For me, it is “C:\Program Files\Stardock\ObjectDock\Backgrounds\Leopard” open up the background with windows fax and picture viewer, copy it and rotate the COPIED version ONCE either clockwise or anti-clockwise. Then, open up the configuration file in notepad and tweak the neccesary configuration! Remember to set the correct background file name and set the title to [BackgroundLeft]. Have fun tweaking, and i believe it should work. Remember to turn the option: Stretch background proportionately on!

Does this plug-in actually have the [B]behaviour[/B] of the leopard dock too? I’ve been looking for ages for some thing that will fully emulate it.

refer to this thread:
