Cairo-Dock

Cairo-Dock is a pretty, light and convenient interface to your desktop, able to replace advantageously your system panel! It features multi-docks, taskbar, launchers and a lot of useful applets. Applets can be detached from the dock to act as desktop widgets. Numerous ready-to-use themes are available in 1 click, and can be easily customized at your convenience. It can use hardware acceleration to be very fast and low on CPU.

Preview Other screenshots are available at Glx-Dock.org.

This project is split in 3 parts:

The Cairo-Dock-Session project aims to provide an easy way to install a session that is desktop agnostic and uses Cairo-Dock as a Shell (the main interface).

Installation

Please see our Wiki at Glx-Dock.org for an excellent installation guide.

Bug reports

You can report bugs in Launchpad under the 'Bugs' section. If possible:

  • Read our wiki specially the 'Recurring Problems' section which can help you to resolve some bugs like a black background, messages at startup, etc.
  • Please include also some information like your distribution, your achitecture (32/64bits), your Desktop Manager (Gnome, KDE, XFCE,...) your Window Manager (Compiz, Metacity, Kwin, etc.), if you use Cairo-Dock with or without OpenGL, with which theme, etc.
  • Include the method to reproduce the bug (which actions, which options activated)
  • Run the dock with the command cairo-dock -l debug > debug.txt reproduce the bug and join the content of debug.txt.
  • If it's a crash, please give us a backtrace of it with GDB. It's easy thanks to this wiki page.

Thank you for your help!
