Hide Front Row icons from your Dock

I know that I have been posting a lot about Front Row lately, but I promise this is my last one. A reader, JW explained in the comments on another post, how to hide the Front Row icons from your dock. Here are the instructions:

  1. If you’ve already setup Front Row, you’ll have to redo the Launch Front Row script. Take this code:

    tell application “System Events”

    tell application “Front Row” to activate

    key code 53 using {command down}

    delay 0.0

    key code 53

    end tell

    and save it as an Application Bundle, not an Application in your /Applications folder.

  2. Go into your /Applications, control-click on the script’s icon in finder, and click “Show Package Contents”. Then, open the Contents folder, and edit Info.plist. Right after the <dict> tag, place this code in:

    <key>LSUIElement</key>

    <string>1</string>

  3. Open the same file in the “Front Row” package, and change the already existing property of LSUIElement from 0 to 1.
  4. Open up the Terminal in /Applications/Utilities and run the following commands:

    touch “/Applications/Front Row.app”

    touch “/Applications/Launch Front Row.app”
