According to a note that is included on the MacUpdate.com website, "OS X 10.11 requires that System Integrity Protection aka "rootless" be turned off during the initial install for SIMBL". However, this has not been my experience. Despite booting into OS X Recovery mode on my iMac running 15A235d and disabling SIP, cDock refuses to functional fully unless I keep SIP disabled after the installation, and even after a reboot. In fact, even with SIP disabled, and even though I have installed both the bundles and osax in BOTH my main library as well as my Home library -- to see if I could get it to work -- there are still some quirks. More specifically, the colorful sidebar refuses to work at all, and the osax repeatedly asks for admin authorization in order to do certain things with cDock. Yes, I am the admin of my machine. On the bright side, the menubar icon works, and the themes work as well -- if I leave SIP disabled. While I obviously understand that Apple is keen on security -- and for good reason -- I must say that SIP breaking both cDock and Bartender has soured me a bit on Apple's heavy-handedness. I am wondering if after sandboxing, with SIP, Apple may be going a little too far with security. For the record, in 25 years of working on Macintosh computers, I have been infected with a virus ONE time, and that was many years ago when I was young, a new computer user, and did something rather stupid. So basically, if I want a transparent dock, I need to disable SIP. What a choice! :(
It's back! Yosemite is poorer without cDock. Your dedication is much appreciated and gives pleasure to many. Thank you!
cDock, now is running again. Thanks to Wolf for the upgrade. Having the dock of Maverick is too good! Thanks, thanks, thanks !!!!!!! tullio
I have been using cDock for quite a while to create a transparent dock. It is broken with El Capitan. I eagerly await a fix / update for this really nice utility.
