0.91.4 as AWN plugin is close to perfection

only one problem - if another app (not my mouse) will raise a minimized window then that window come out without decorations.

If I un-minimize a wimdow, window decorations are there ..but if another app will raise that window then windows decorations are gone. The quick solution is to minimize that window and then raise again to get back decorations.

I am using Mate (Mint 17) + Compiz + AWN

I'm using dockbarx 0.91.4 in Arch by running dockx. There's a black border around the bar. Is there anyway to remove it?

Everything works great on Mint 15 (Cinnamon), except the previews don't show the windows. They only show either an icon or a blank space.

Any ideas?

Hi guys!
Your dock it's awesome! I think in order to substitute definitively unity only one feature is missing: unity web apps!. Do you think is possible to include that in the next versions?

When closing a window on a second monitor with dockx:
Quote:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/dockbarx/dockbar.py", line 475, in __on_window_closed
dock.remove_window(window)
File "/usr/bin/dockx", line 930, in remove_window

del self.data[ref(key)]
KeyError: <weakref at 0x2980c58; to 'wnck.Window' at 0x28170f0>

Window closes but entry in window list isn't removed, reffreshing does nothing; full dockx restart needed.

Everything I can find about running this on MATE suggests that instructions for making it work are in the readme, but the web-page linked to in the readme no longer exists.
Actual instructions in the readme, please?

Congratulations on this great project ... fantastic, I love DockBarX!
Since leaving Unity and needed a panel.
Thank you very much for making support MATE

I have to make a consideration about Compiz:
For option Dodge Windows to work properly you need to disable the plugin Gentle positioning move windows.
Otherwise, when you drag the window and touch the edge of the panel, panel is not hidden, until the window is dropped...

I manually installed dockbarx as the ppa wouldn't install, and now I want to uninstall it, how do I do that?

Hi!! I use DockbarX inside AWN and Ubuntu 10.04. It has always worked like a charm till I upgraded to v0.90. I have AWN in the bottom of my screen, so icons should be presented in horizontal, but, after upgrading, DockbarX applet presents them in vertical. Obviously my AWN is 31px height, so there is not much space to show icons xD Only two and a half icons are shown and very very small.

Please, check it!! Is it a bug of the new version?? Can I fix it in some way?

Thank you very much for making the best taskbar!!

Hi, I like DockBarX applet, it looks very beautiful and useful together with gnome panel. I have a tiny bothering issue with it, I use onboard screen keyboard, when I launch an application on DockBarX and after when I minimize the application by clicking icon on DockBarX, a dotted border appears around DockBarX applet. It depends on the theme I pick up. It doesn't appear on certain themes. I use AlbaCloud, I notice that it appears on themes that use colored right-click menu. A guy published a workaround for hiding gnome panel handle here http://pclinuxos2007.blogspot.com/2009/06/how-do-i-change-gnome-panel-handle.html
Is there a workaround for my problem?
P.S. I use natty 64 bit and I use gnome-panel Win2-7 themes
Thanks

Dockbarx is the only thing which I was so lacking in gnome3. I hope that will soon be added support for gnome3.

Good luck! :]

Will this app be ported to either MATE or Cinnamon? Both desktop environments are now stable.

BTW I really wish you hadn't moved the news to Google+ - it's a loathsome forum format.

I'm Fusion Linux [1] project leader and while in previous versions we used DockbarX by default in GNOME 2.x desktop we can't use it as latest GNOME 3 isn't currently supported.

If you manage to add support for GNOME 3 we would be proud to include DockbarX again in Fusion Linux by default.

Cheers,
Valent.

dockx
the 'dodge windows' mode does not work correctly
The docks are always in sync on all desktops.
in the file '/usr/bin/dockx' is no entry for 'dodge windows'
but two for 'dodge active window' ?

The dock will be displayed only on one desktop
But no problem - (openbox / lxde / lubunntu rc file)

Thanks for reading ...
I hope my English is an English ;-) (google helps)

Hi,

I can't seem to access the preferences, whether it's through the Applications menu, the Properties button when right-clicking on the dock itself, or through the console (dbx_preference.py).

When using the console, I receive this stack trace:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/dbx_preference", line 2046, in <module>
PrefDialog()
File "/usr/bin/dbx_preference", line 219, in __init__
self.popup_style = PopupStyle()
File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/dockbarx/theme.py", line 382, in __init__
self.on_style_changed()
File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/dockbarx/theme.py", line 407, in on_style_changed
elif self.globals.default_popup_style in styles:
AttributeError: 'Globals' object has no attribute 'default_popup_style'

I am using version 0.48 (from webupd8's ppa) in Ubuntu 11.10, with GMOME Classic. DockbarX itself works fine, either as a standalone dock (dockx) or an AWN applet. I also have dockbarx-themes-extra installed.

Thanks in advance.
