Deeper is simple and effective. Just as simple as I need it. The only thing I miss is entering a new icon for objects, specially folders. No more is currently missing on my wish list

This apps items are contained in Onyx. So, no sense using Deeper.

If you have installed-and-run Deeper since 1 February 2018, please note that we have investigated a suspicious link to a Deeper update posted and found it to be malicious - we have removed the link. You may need to follow these steps to remove a bitcoin miner which hacked version of Deeper. • Delete any copies of the above titles you might have installed. • Download and install fresh copies of the titles. • In Finder, open a window for your home directory (Cmd-Shift-H). • If the Library folder is not displayed, hold down the Option/Alt key, click on the "Go" menu, and select "Library (Cmd-Shift-L)". • Scroll down to find the "mdworker" folder (~/Library/mdworker/). • Delete the entire folder. • Scroll down to find the "LaunchAgents" folder (~/Library/LaunchAgents/). • From that folder, delete "MacOS.plist" and "MacOSupdate.plist" (~/Library/LaunchAgents/MacOS.plist and ~/Library/LaunchAgents/MacOSupdate.plist). • Empty the Trash. • Restart your system.

I have Deeper 2.0.2 installed. I just installed OS X 10.11.1. When I went to run Deeper today it told me I must have OS X 10.10. I imagine a new Deeper version will be coming out.

I installed 2.1.0 from HIPPEMAN's URL below. Thanks.

When I last looked at Deeper it seemed to offer no more in the way of revealing hidden functions as ONYX itself. Has this changed? Is this required if one has ONYX?

I downloaded this app based on its reviews and the date of its last release, which compared to the other apps in the same category, seemed like one of the best ones. Although from this site, there aren't too many others that it compares to, being that it was free made it the top choice to try out. Shortly after to my surprise, I saw how much it looked nearly exactly like Onyx - my fault for not paying attention to the developer of the app. Already being a user of the Onyx app for a few years, I was also surprised simply for not being aware of this app. After checking the tabs and the various features it showed, I quickly uninstalled it, since it pretty much seemed like Onyx but lighter maybe, or rather the same thing but not as many features that Onyx does. To be fair, however, I didn't give it much attention and time to check it out further than I did, so I might be wrong in my opinion of this app. That being said, if it is really just a light version of Onyx, I cannot honestly know where to begin what to question about it. Just to name a few things, why is it given high ratings, why does it even exist (it would make sense if it was called something like Onyx Lite for example), why are both apps free. Who doesn't love free apps especially when theyre solid and good at what they do, so please don't get me wrong on that point. I am just feeling confused on this app on many levels. In my opinion, Onyx is more of a maintenance app, however it does several other nice things as well. But for my own use, it's always been for maintenance purposes and when it comes to using an app that does "reveals hidden features of the OS", I totally think of different types of apps as that is something different all together. I know other similar apps like to do both things as well, but they do a better job at separating maintenance stuff and hidden features stuff. I just think that both purposes should not be included in the same app which is going beyond the scope of my comment. I love Onyx and it's always been free. I've never had any issues with it as a maintenance tool, but as for Deeper, if they are equally good it's not enough for me to feel right giving high ratings for both. So I recommend going with Onyx and staying away from Deeper.

This version not only works with 10.9, it is also the first utility I am aware of (and this includes the very recent update of MacPilot) that allows login window background changes. Now, if only someone could hack the Dock and bring back total transparency....

This version DOES NOT WORK with Mavericks. Will someone please release a dock utility that will remove the ridiculous dock shelf so the app icons float freely and we can easily see the small lights of those apps running? As it stands now you can't figure out what is running and what isn't because the shelf gets in the way.

I have just downloaded the new version. It keeps telling me that I have entered my name or password incorrectly (even though I've triple-checked and tried both my short name and long name) and then gets stuck on reading parameters. The program never opens properly and has to be force quit.

Deeper 1.6.3 is not working on my Macbook Pro with Retina display running OSX 10.8.2. When I enter my admin password, Deeper 1.6.3 do not accept to, and a dialog [p[ u[ stated that the password or username is not correct. ANd it just stop working. Deeper 1,6.2 has no problem, and the log in is fine. So I have to revert to 1.6.2. Fix please this is a bug!!

Beside the annoying need to use a password (my choice, not their business!!!!!), I must admit that it's more complete than TinkerTool.

I have never understood why it requires you to enter an admin password. I leave mine blank for general use, but opening OnyX, Maintenance and Deeper is impossible without logging out and re-booting the Mac as the Administrator with an assigned password. I should be able to use these apps without all this hassle. If I've designated myself to be "Admin" in the Users & Groups preferences, this should be sufficient "security". A poor oversight which mitigates against using these three apps.

I’m a longtime Onyx user and love this developer. But I’m lazy (and overworked), so I wonder if anyone is willing to inform me whether Deeper 1.6.1b1 does anything that Onyx 2.6.3 doesn’t do in Mountain Lion? Thanks to whoever is.

I agree. This is an excellent app, making it easy to customize the Mac and to manage your customizations. Certainly preferable to using the Terminal for the same kinds of tweaks.

Downloads from here result in ver. 1.2.9 (not 1.3.0), and the application itself reports that 1.2.9 is the latest version.

Should probably use the official apple method for obtaining sudo privs instead of asking for my password directly. At least that way I can be sure the dev isnt sending my password off to some secret email account (not that I distrust him, but it's the "safer" way to do it).

Some users use OnyX just for the hidden functions. Deeper is for these users. ;-) Also, some others users use OnyX only for the maintenance. The application "Maintenance" is for these users. ;-) Sorry for my bad english...

I don't really get why to put this in a package of its own when Onyx already does it nice and clean and for free as well. But I suppose there is a good reason.
