Ubuntu :: Hide The Docky Application Icon On Docky?

Jun 28, 2011

I certainly do not want to install Elementary OS, and just want a similar interface. I already installed docky, but Unity gets in the way. Is there a way I can disable that? Also, can I hide the docky application icon on Docky? Or is there a better way to do this?

Ubuntu :: Can't Remove Docky Anchor Icon?

Aug 28, 2010

I would like to remove the anchor icon from Docky. I found instructions to go into gconf-editor and set "apps/docky-2/docky/items/DockyItem/ShowDockyItem" to false. Only problem is, this item does not appear.

The only folders in apps/docky-2/docky/items/ are ColoredIconDockItem and WnckDockItem. Inside ColoredIconDockItem, there's a key called DockyItem set at value 193. I tried changing/deleting that and restarting Docky, but it keeps defaulting back. I also removed and reinstalled Docky, but I found the same thing. Does anyone know how I can find the right value to change?

Ubuntu :: Make Docky Use Different Icon Theme Then System

Jun 28, 2010

I have got my Ubuntu desktop looking exactly how I want it apart from one little thing. I would like Docky to use a different icon theme then the one I am using for gnome. See these are the icons I want to use on Gnome/Nautilus: But these are the icons I want for Docky: So what I want to end up with is this: I have had a look in gconf-editor to see if there are any settings to do this but there doesn't seem to be any, I even tried adding a stringvalue with "icon_theme" and putting in the theme I wanted to use but that didn't work. Is there anyway I can manual edit a Docky config file to tell it what icon theme to use?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Do Docky - Zsnes Icon Blank

Aug 22, 2010

I'm currently on Ubuntu 10.04, and I just have one small issue that is bugging me. Every time I open up zsnes just to play some games, a blank icon appears for the application in the dock. I was just wondering if there is anyway for docky to use the zsnes icon instead of the blank one.On a side note I'm just curious to know how to fix blurry icons that appear on docky as well. I.E. Ubuntu Software Manager.

General :: Docky Shows Default Launcher Icon On Ubuntu?

May 13, 2011

I am using docky on Ubuntu. I want to have a launcher for intellij in my docky bar, but I have an issue.No matter which method for adding the launcher to the dock I use, the intellij icon specified in my .desktop won't display. Instead I get the lame spring board launcher icon. Once I launch intellij it creates another icon on docky. So now I have intellij's correct icon and the spring board launcher icon. Once I close intellij we are back to just the spring board again.Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?I shouldalso note that "idea" launches a shell script if that mattersDesktop file

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Intellij IDE

Ubuntu :: Match Window To Customized Firefox Profile Icon In Docky?

Jun 30, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop AMD-64 on an HP DV4-2000 laptop. I have Docky running on the left side, desktop disabled and wallpapers for my four desktops. I recently killed the bottom panel (yes, it's a poor-man's 11.04).

Those details, I don't think, will have any bearing on the problem at hand, but one never knows. So, I have three different Firefox profiles I run-- the default, which has all the plugins, a stripped-down one which I use for my daily reading (I follow a number of sites using the Morning Coffee plugin), and another stripped one for my local WordPress install.

My problem is this-- I have created three separate launchers on my Desktop, one for each firefox profile. They each have their own icons, and I have successfully imported them each into Docky.

By the way, if you have problems with getting a different icon to show in Docky, open up the launcher with a text editor such as gedit and make sure that both icon listings are pointing to the one you want to use. Example:

[Desktop Entry]


The first icon listing is what Docky uses, the second is what the Launcher file itself looks like. the problem-- When I click on the appropriate icon, I get an instance of Firefox under the correct profile. However, Docky throws the window under the generic Firefox icon, so if I pull up the dock, there might be three instances of firefox running under the firefox icon and nothing under the icons of the other two profile launchers.

I want to be able to click on the Wordpress profile icon and get the Wordpress window that is already open (instead of getting a warning that Firefox is already running... I know that).

I found this page which tells me how to fix a Chrome problem of similar nature, however, when I try to use the command xprop I get nothing. I left it running for fifteen minutes until I gave up and did a ^C to recover my terminal.

So, my problem, as I see it, is this-- I'm running Firefox in all three cases, which Docky correctly interprets. This isn't a java implementation where I can point at the correct Java attribute.

Ubuntu :: Can Use Docky Without Gnome?

Dec 22, 2010

I like to try different combinations of *buntu in the several partitions on my first drive. One combo I enjoy playing with is the Minimal CD with Openbox or some other small footprint window manager.I'd like to try Docky, but the need for compositing is a problem for me. I don't want to install Gnome, KDE, or XFCE, because I don't want all the stuff that comes with them.Can you tell me the packages I need to install to get Docky working? Are Compiz and Docky enough?Will Compiz serve as a standalone window manager and automatically start at logon?

Ubuntu :: Remove Docky Lag With NVidia?

Feb 24, 2010

I've already Googled this problem, and it seems that the only solution is running:

nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 -a GlyphCache=1

in the terminal. However, this barely helped me.

I've heard it's a problem Docky has with nVidia drivers, which I use.

Does anyone have a solution? Docky is so slow it is essentially unusable at this point. Cairo dock seems too glitchy, so I guess it's back to AWN.

Ubuntu :: Docky And Gnome Do UI Customization

Jul 22, 2010

This year in college I've had the liberty to be learning about Linux. This was mostly in the shell so a lot of GUI applications we didn't use. The fun part of this all is that once you know how to work in Bash. Linux isn't all so frightening and confusing anymore ! So I've decided to finally take the shot on switching from Windows to Ubuntu Desktop and I must say I'm quite amazed with the customization you can do in Ubuntu.I just installed Docky and I installed Gnome Do. Now it has come to my attention that Gnome Do can integrate with Docky however I do have a small question concerning the customization of the Dock bar. In Gnome Do I would really like to have the panel look from Docky and I was wondering if this is possible. To me it seems that it's only possible to use the 3D look which looks a lot like Mac OSx. I'm aiming for a bit of a Windows 7 interface however.

Ubuntu :: Awn/docky Trash Never Empty

Aug 27, 2010

Look at the screenshot, I have only one file in trash but AWN and Docky counts 47+1 items. When it's empty it counts 47, and there's no way to really empty. But files are really gone. It doesn't happens with Cairo Dock (I don't know why).

Ubuntu :: Docky's Gmail Won't Update

Oct 29, 2010

It's been two weeks now since I can't have my inbox checked on Docky's Gmail applet, and its a drag because I need an integrated mail notification and Docky is perfect.

So, here are the facts:

- have tried it on both 10.04 i386 and 10.10 amd64, identical problem

- after new installation works on till the first reboot, then stops. You see just the icon and when clickin "refresh" there's no "turning circle thingy inside the icon" which tells you it's refreshing. (and there's mail in the inbox).

- I haven't managed to find the docky configuration file, only something in the cache and configuration directory in home. Where is the real configuration file for Docky?

I'm talking about the 2.1 version.

Ubuntu :: Can't Launch Applications From Docky

Nov 1, 2010

I recently installed stacks for Docky using the script of this link here [URL]

Until that, everything is okay. I can drag and drop folders to Docky, and when I click 'em I can easily see it's content like in Mac OS or Cairo.

But the problem here is that I wanted to make an Application folder like in Mac OS X. I made a folder that I called aplications and there I put all the applications I have installed.

But, when I try to open an app from the Docky, it just opens gedit with info about the app I'm trying to open. Is it related that all the application's names are .desktop files? Is that an executable?

Below I leave two caps, the first is of the folder opened in Docky stacks. The second is of what I get when I try to open and application directly from stacks.

Ubuntu :: Docky Won't Start After Update?

Nov 5, 2010

In today's updates there was an update for Docky to go from 2.0.5 to 2.0.6. The thing I thought was odd was that the update was only around 600 or 700kb in size where as its normally around ~13mb.

When I restarted the computer docky loaded but the whole system froze and wouldn't respond to either mouse or keyboard so I did a hard restart. Now Docky won't load either on restart or from the program menu but it is present in the System Monitor (see attached image).

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Compositing With Docky, No Window Headers?

Apr 30, 2010

I am a somewhat new user to Ubuntu, and I just upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10. I did not do a clean install, just an upgrade by running "update-manager -d". Once I upgraded, lots of problems started happening:

- I booted up, and nothing came up but text like in a command prompt; not a splash screen. Is that correct? - When I logged in, none of my windows had tops (i.e. Window Title, Buttons for minimize, maximize, and close). I changed the theme and turned on the max graphical effects, and that fixed it. (by the way, I know my graphics card can handle it because that is how it was set up on 9.10)

- ...Then, I took off the bottom panel and added Docky. Once I added my icons to it, I restarted, and then the window headers were once again gone, and Docky popped up a message in the top right saying it needed Composite support turned on (i.e. Metacity or Compiz). I turned it on in Metacity (I also have Compiz installed), but nothing changed. So now I have no tops to my windows and have to resort to ALT+F4 to close windows, etc, and I have a huge black rectangle taking up the lower 1/4 of my screen that is just black, with Docky in it...it isn't just a border around it like some other posts have said, but rather takes up almost half my screen.
