Creating a taskbar on OS X is not as trivial as on other operating systems, this is why this is the first
real attempt at creating a commercial utility. While iTaskbar is used in production and as far as our testing
can tell stable, it's also an experimental product, because it is deeply connected to the internals of Mac OS X.
Thus, it may happen that an update of the operating system breaks the compatibility. We will try to fix these
issues as soon as they arise, but it could take a bit of time. To make sure that an update of OS X is supported
by iTaskbar just check our homepage for the latest tested version.
After having downloaded the dmg archive, open it and drag iTaskbar to the 'Applications' folder.
Optional: If you want, you can check the digital signature of iTaskbar to make sure it hasn't been
tampered with. Open the terminal and type: 'codesign --verify -vv /Applications/iTaskbar.app'.
A valid code signature should be reported. You can also verify that the signing authority is indeed Cerbero
GmbH by typing: 'codesign --display -vv /Applications/iTaskbar.app'.
Since El Capitan it is necessary to disable a part of the System Integrity Protection (SIP)
in order to allow process injection for iTaskbar. To do that, reboot into recovery mode by turnin off your system
and then pressing Cmd+R as soon at it boots. You should enter the recovery mode.
Open the terminal.
Enter the following command: 'csrutil enable --without debug'.
The entered command may return a warning, you can ignore it. Reboot your system and follow the rest of the steps.
To run iTaskbar the first time, open it from the context menu item 'Open'.
Even though the application is signed, OS X will warn that it has been downloaded from the internet.
Click on 'Open' to confirm.
iTaskbar needs to install a helper tool. In order to perform this operation OS X will ask for
an administrator user name and password.
Optional: If you want, you can set iTaskbar to run at start-up. To do that, click on 'Accounts & Groups'
under 'System Preferences'.
Then add iTaskbar to the 'Login Items' by clicking on the plus symbol and selecting it from the 'Applications'
