Ubuntu :: Cairo Dock Shortcut Bug?

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. As in I click once, could wait up to an hour probably, then click again and finally it opens up but twice.

Ubuntu :: Cairo Dock Always Showing Below?

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 :: 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.)

Ubuntu :: Cairo-dock Causing Random Freezes?

May 28, 2010

I'd been using karmic for ages with no probs. I did a fresh install of lucid when it came out and installed compiz and cairo-dock. Rather annoyingly my computer started to completely freeze. I couldn't get a shell up, I couldn't ssh from another machine and the sysrq keys didn't work (the fan picked up speed almost immediately). The freezing didn't seem to follow any pattern and wasn't happening when accessing the dock. I decided to disable compiz (and cairo-dock) to see if this helped. It did! I reintroduced compiz with no problems, but as soon as I introduced cairo-dock, I started to get the same problem.

I've not been able to find anything in the general logs to give any clues. ubuntu lucid

Ubuntu :: Cairo Dock Desktop Switcher At Top Of Screen

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

OpenSUSE :: Cairo Dock With OpenGL Not Running - 11.3?

Jul 21, 2010

I recently upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3. I had to manually install nVidia drivers to get the desktop working correctly (compiz was enabled), now the system runs fine except for cairo-dock which doesn't start on KDE boot.Running it from console and choosing Yes when asked for using OpenGL, it returns an error

djechelon@MONSTR:~> cairo-dock
Cairo-Dock version: 2.1.3-7
Compiled date: Mar 18 2010 20:45:24
Running with OpenGL: 1

cairo-dock: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgtkglext-x11-1.0.so.0: undefined symbol: GTK_WIDGET_NO_WINDOW

After upgrade to 11.3 I performed a full distro upgrade via YaST by updating all the packages if a newer version was available, so I'm using the latest version of all the packages on my system. I searched with YaST for the package containing that libgtkglext and forced its upgrade in order to reinstall it. No fix.Here is my repository list

Ubuntu :: Cairo Dock Shortcuts Applet - Change Icons?

Jan 15, 2010

I am running Ubuntu Karmic and I have the Cairo-Dock as my launcher. I am trying to figure out how to change the icons in the "Shortcuts" applet, but I am running into trouble. I did find where the icons are stored, but I was looking for a way to point to different icons instead of overwriting the originals. I have attached a screenshot of the applet and icons in question. By the way, I did try changing the overall icon theme of Cairo-Dock and that seems to have absolutely 0 effect on the applet icons.
