I recently needed to restart my dock in the terminal via
killall Dock as I have done many times before. However, after doing so, the dock did not restart and my wallpaper is black:
This is very worrying as, despite multiple restarts and a host of other attempted solutions, I have been unable to resolve the issue. I have also looked in Activity Monitor for the
Dock process but I have been shown nothing when searching for it:
This leads me to believe that the process has not restarted. My question is: How can I restart the Dock process to fix this issue?
Thank you in advance for any help, this is a very worrying issue for me as it has greatly limited the functionality of my Mac.
Kind regards, Rocco
P.S. this was the first time I tried killing the dock with that command in OSX Mojave which may be the cause of the problem. Maybe it is an issue with Mojave as I have never experienced this with any previous OSs
This was the exact, full command I ran before the problem occurred:
sqlite3 /$HOME/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/desktoppicture.db "update data set value = '~/Desktop/wallpaper.png'" && killall Dock
