Ubuntu :: Cairo Dock Desktop Switcher At Top Of Screen

Feb 3, 2011

My cairo dock is acting funny.The desktop switcher is somehow at the top of the screen now. The other thing is that if i set the dock to the left side of the screen it moves to the right side of the screen but faces the other way, and if I move it to the top it stays at the bottom but is upside down

Ubuntu :: Fix The Cairo-clock Desktop Position At Startup?

May 10, 2009

I tipically love the clock to appear in the desktop upper right corner but... everytime I reboot, the cairo-clock appear in the middle of the screen losing the right place "memory", and I have to replace it manually all the times...I've tried with another clock, the screenlet provided one and I met no problem with this issue, but before to give-up and canging clock I want to try this last chance.In the autostart menu I created a new item called "cairo clock" that execute the command: < cairo-clock > but I suppose there could be a better command to configure by passing also the desktop position coordinate.

OpenSUSE :: Huge Black Box Behind Cairo Dock & Desktop Effects Won't Launch?

Apr 18, 2010

Cairo was working fine for me then randomly I see a huge black box behind it. I also cannot access my desktop effects along with it to activate compiz. I googled here and on the net trying different commands such as

:~> xgl-switch --enable-xgl
If 'xgl-switch' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
cnf xgl-switch

Fedora :: Error: Package Requirements (cairo >= 1.6.0) Were Not Met: No Package 'cairo' Found

May 24, 2010

Today I was using Gchempaint (part of Gnome Chemistry Tools) and found that the F12 version fails miserably to correctly export H to xyz. So I decided to install the latest version I found (0.11). There are, however, some problems I must sort out during compilation.

Apparently it does not see my 'cairo' installation and so I get the following error message:


checking for cairo... configure: error: Package requirements (cairo >= 1.6.0) were not met: No package 'cairo' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.Alternatively, you may set the environment variables cairo_CFLAGS and cairo_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Jun 10, 2010

In cairo-dock when I hover over the 'shortcuts' applet it shows me what's in my 'places' menu, but I have to click twice on any object to open it, and then it opens two instances of whatever I opened.

Sep 4, 2010

I've been having problems with Cairo dock always showing below other windows. I have tried launching it with cairo-dock --keep-above and cairo-dock -a but to I have had no success. Even editing the settings from the configure to be "always on top" does not work.It was working before where it would appear above when I put the cursor at the bottom of the screen, but it isn't anymore, for whatever reason.

Ubuntu :: No Labels In Cairo Dock?

Sep 11, 2010

I used to be able to see the labels above the icons in the dock when I hover over them. For some reason I can't see them now. I think I may have turned something off in the Cairo Dock settings and can't remember where to implement this functionality again.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Use The Cairo-Dock

Jan 11, 2011

I bring up Ubuntu 10.10 today and cairo-dock is all messed up. There is only a box on the left end of where it used to appear at the bottom of my desktop.There is no icons and no ability to do anything with it. It was perfectly fine yesterday, which is what I do not understand.

I installed some gstreamer updates, but that was after it was messed up and the updates didn't change anything.I am using the latest version of nVidia driver 260.19.29At first I tried purging compiz, cairo-dock and all the plugins, extras, etc, CCSM as well as Simple CCSM. Then I reinstalled everything fresh and nothing changed.I even tried removing the kernel 2.6.35-24-generic and reinstalling it and still no bueno!

When I try to even open Simple CCSM via System > Preferences, the cursor indicates activity for a while and then nothing.Right clicking on the desktop and attempting to change visual effects to any thing but None yields some weird stuff and then a message "Desktop effects could not be enabled".

Like I said it was fine yesterday and has been fine since installation until today. It cannot be the video driver or any of the obvious solutions as I have had this driver for quite a while and everything was perfect until now.And please don't say try Docky or AWN. Been there and done that and I prefer Cairo-dock open GL.

Ubuntu :: Cairo Dock And Black Square Around It?

Jul 29, 2010

I have been using Cairo dock for a little while now with little problems. I have hooked up a monitor to my Lenovo T60 laptop for the first time. Problem is the Cairo Dock now spreads across both screens (which I can live with) and has an ugly black square around it that prevents me from using the bottom of the screen.

There is a similar query here ([URL]...ighlight=cairo)

Ubuntu :: Cairo Dock No Jitter Like Docky?

Jan 3, 2011

I've notice that cairo dock has jitter when you move the mouse over the Dock. Indeed if you install Gnome Do (Docky) you notice that when you move the mouse over the bar the effect is very smooth. I don't understand why cairo dock is less smooth in movement but i finally found a solution:

1- Close cairo-dock bar;

2- Go to ~/.config/cairo-dock/current_theme/

3- Open the file cairo-dock.conf with gedit

4- Now press ctrl+f and insert in the search: refresh frequency

5- Now you have to modify the line:

#i-[5;60] Refresh frequency when mouving cursor into the dock : #{in Hz. This is to adjust regarding your CPU power.} refresh frequency=35 in thi s way: #i-[5;120] Refresh frequency when mouving cursor into the dock :
#{in Hz. This is to adjust regarding your CPU power.} refresh frequency=120

6- save the modification;

7- start cairo-dock;

This is an example of bad programmation, a lot of possibility to configure the dock but no one of this it's adequately cured.

Ubuntu :: Uncentralized Subdock Menu On Cairo?

Apr 19, 2011

I'm not sure about the proper name for this, I believe it's a subdock menu (?)Anyway, let the picture speak for itself. The icons are a little shifted to the right hand side.dock.jpgP.S.: I'm using the Macbuntu package, which originally comes with Docky but I replaced it with Cairo. I don't think it has any influence on the matter, though.

Ubuntu :: Themes Gone From Most Recent Version Of Cairo-dock?

Jan 27, 2010

I'd read there was some work being done on cairo-dock this weekend (and noticed it absent from the Package Manager) and upon installing earlier today, I didn't find any of the previously available dock themes.

Were they removed for some reason or am I doing something wrong?

(Oh, and I'm looking within the 'Manage Themes' submenu within cairo-dock for reference.)
