I'm using the shapeshifter application to custimize my osx e.g. with transparent dock. But everytime after switching the user, or working with parallels in full screen mode, or connecting a second display / beamer to my MBP, the transparency is gone and i have to restart the dock.
As a solution I also used a little shell script for this problem, but this app is more comfortable and osx like. Thank you!
I have also a little task for you: it will be fine to start the app and force a dock restart to avoid the two splash screens and the additionally clicks.
