2014 - Believe or not but this old version never worked for Mountain Lion but works PERFECT for Mavericks 10.9.2!
Is if as Mavericks was designed to be back compatible with not software made til Lion.

I found out by mistake when my I upgraded my friends Hackintosh that was in Lion 10.7.5 and brought it up to Mavericks 10.9.2 and notice he still had Dock Spaces loaded and I decided to try it. Wow it was working as it was in Lion, all perfect! So now I have installed on all my Mac's/Hackintosh running Mavericks!

Flat out does not work. Been playing with it for a while in both OSX Leopard and Lion and does not function in either of them. Stay away. Waste of money

Its a good idea to be able to have 10 different docks but this application seems to crash a lot and a bunch of weird bugs like dock spaces deleting my configured docks after i set them. cant seem to understand how to get it to work with out messing everything up.

Hmmm...I've been using it continuously since February and haven't had any of these problems. Try contacting the developer to see what's going on.

Anyone know if DockSpaces and Hyperspaces play well with each other?

Love the product. Unfortunately the latest version crashes immediately at log in. Need a fix.

it seems that some others have the same issue, unfortunately I cannot resolve the issue because I do not have this problem in both of my computers.

The easiest solution is to reset the application:

Trash the following folder:
/Users/Yourname/Library/Application Support/DockSpaces/
and the following file

and try to launch the application again.


thanks but it did not work. Below is the error encountered:

Desktop Per Space does not work on my laptop (osx 6.5). The only time the desktop changes is when an application automatically triggers the Space change. If I do it manually through the top bar, the background stays the same.

This is a big disappointment for an otherwise great little program.

What do you mean? The desktop is assigned to each space not to each Dock :)

Would you prefer a "Desktop per Dock" function?


Maybe I'm confused. Are you saying that when I am changing docks I am not changing spaces?

My main use of this program is for the docks. I probably wouldn't be using spaces on its own. It would be nice to change backgrounds so that I know which dock I am in. It's not a make-or-break for me, but it would be nice.

I still love your little program.

I have been using Dock Spaces in conjunction with Hyperspaces for six months now. This is an amazingly wonderful product. Before Dock Spaces, having spaces, even hyperspaces was useless for me. Dock spaces was the missing product. Twice docks have gotten messed up, so I keep a list of which apps I keep on which dock for quick rebuilding, but since this is a freebie app done by a student I still give it 5 stars!
