KXdocker 1.14 compiles & installs ok from source on FC6, it works (I get one icon on the dock) but none of the add-ons will compile properly (unfortunately it's the add-ons that make kxdocker as good as it is!)... Dcop, configuration, resources, tray icon, all won't compile properly so unfortunately KXDocker is completely useless for FC6 for now because there's no way to configure it nor manipulate it.

Makefile:854: warning: overriding commands for target `clean-bcheck'
Makefile:817: warning: ignoring old commands for target `clean-bcheck'
Makefile:859: warning: overriding commands for target `bcheck-am'
Makefile:822: warning: ignoring old commands for target `bcheck-am'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install-am'.

...etc, etc




Too bad - great potential. I give it a thumbs up for effort!!

At my computer KXDocker does not recognize Compiz and uses fake transparency. Can I force KXDocker to use compiz and real transparency?

Alright, click on the first download link on this page. The one that says "Source Code of KXDOCKER" When you get to that page, scroll down until you see "Download Kxdocker 1.0.0." Under this heading is a bunch of plguins for kxdocker including the trayiconlogger. Download and install that and you should get a configuration dialogue.

Thanks. By the way, do you have that error I mentioned?

edit: I fixed the problem by removing everythong associated with kxdocker on my system and re-installing. I probably installed over my .40 installation which caused the errors.

alltogether there are many issues on freebsd:
1. freebsd does not come with bash, if you install bash then it is not in /bin but in /usr/local/bin . please check for that. also make the "autoinstall-everything-Makefile" syntax /bin/sh compliant. things like cd kxdocker-0.4* dont work on standard sh
2. gnu make is called gmake in freebsd, not make; one has to change that in the "autoinstall-everything-Makefile", too.
3. freebsd doesnt come with wget by default, one could use fetch instead. (in the famous Makefile)
4. cpu module doesnt build:
xeplugin_gcpu.cpp:391:2: warning: #warning "add support for SMP on FreeBSD"
xeplugin_gcpu.cpp: In member function `void GCpu::updateCpu(CpuData&, int)':
xeplugin_gcpu.cpp:393: error: `CTL_MAXNAME' undeclared (first use this function)
xeplugin_gcpu.cpp:394: error: `oidCpuTime' undeclared (first use this function)
xeplugin_gcpu.cpp:395: error: `CPUSTATES' undeclared (first use this function)
xeplugin_gcpu.cpp:396: error: `cpuTime' undeclared (first use this function)

xeplugin_gcpu.cpp:415: error: `CP_SYS' undeclared (first use this function)
xeplugin_gcpu.cpp:416: error: `CP_IDLE' undeclared (first use this function)

5. then everything build and installs fine, but when i run kxdocker it asks for its config, so i give it its config file... then it says:
kxdocker: WARNING: loading xml...
kxdocker: WARNING: loading plugins...
kxdocker: WARNING: Plugins loaded:
kxdocker: WARNING: Going to background...

and nothing happens on my desktop...
(although i must admit the last problem could be caused by me and not by freebsd)
anyway thanks! i hope someone can help me on the last bit, then i might even make a binary package for freebsd ;)

kxdocker is a good and innovative docker but there are couple of problems which make it difficult to use..

1. The parabolic zooming mode is slow and clearly lags when using a compositing manager such as xcompmgr/kompmgr

2. the NET::Dock setting does not seem to stick considering that maximized windows cover the dock making is useless.

A normal zooming mode as in ksmoothdock would be a very nice addition too...

Hi,
You've said in the changelog that kxdocker is ready for composite but that its not stable yet. Does that mean that if I enable composite (although its unstable), kxdocker will use it accordingly?
