The official ppa does only contain up-to-date versions for the newest ubuntu. Try with webupd8:s ppa. It holds up-to-date versions of dockbarx for older ubuntus as well, but it will update quite a few other programs for you as well.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8

I understand that's too early to talk about, but it will be possible to implement dockbarx in the new gnome-shell "dock" on the left side of the screen?
Why don't you propose a close implementationwith it?

It be could if you added the option to enable Preview mode without the list of the window names, but keep the small close button in the Preview.

Hello Mr or Mrs dbX. The present is to show you my screen. http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5286/5332663680_02ce6e3e61_b.jpg As you can see there are beutiful icons all around. With dbX at the left, tray at the center and some topPanels buttons in the right or launchers. dbX is excelent because let us have 2 icons instead of 3 in the cases of rhythmbox or tramsmission, for example, but not enough. We should have in just one icon a launcher, the button of the task and the functionality of the system tray. I was doing my research and we are a lot of people interested in different ways on this issue that ca be solved unifing the tray with the dock. I think that your unyfing policy is sufficiently plenty of room to welcome this proposal.

For the noticifaction area, that's not techically possible. But for ubuntus app indicators it should be possible. I'm investigating in how to implement those in DockbarX.

Hello,

This is the best dock-type application! I just have one feature request, if possible. I notice window previews (it only shows the icon) and opacify don't work when a window is minimized. It would be nice to have an option to enable this.

Thanks in advance!

Opacify for minimized windows is of course possible but opacify for a minimized window would show nothing but the desktop. Would that make more sense?


Previews for minimized windows is possible with compiz 0.9.2 or kwin (the kde window manager).

If I recall correctly, the Windows 7 taskbar shows previews and allows Aero Peek for minimized windows.

Basically the previews should always be shown, and opacify shows the selected window (not an empty desktop), but it remains minimized. I find this behaviour desirable because often I want to switch to a minimized window, and knowing which one would be helpful.

Thanks in advance!

As stated before, previews for minimized windows works for compiz 0.9.2 (and with kwin). Opacify is a hack and can't show a minimized window unless it actually is unminimized.


It could be possible to have DockbarX unminimize windows when a group button is howered and minimize them again when the cursor leaves the button. This could have quite a few unwelcome side effects though. It will surely make the alt+tab order seem random. ;)

Thinking about it... you could probably just as well (or just as badly) fake the whole opacify effect on computers that doens't use compiz by temporarily minimizing all other windows.

I can't make up my mind. Is this a _really_ dumb idea or something actually worth testing?

Hmmm, that's an interesting idea. The only problem I can see, though, is that the minimize and maximize animations will interfere. If they can be inhibited, it's probably worth a try.

There is also the problem of non-minimizable windows, but they are pretty rare.

- Do you use compiz?
- Did you check the option "show previews" in DockbarX preference?
- Is the kde compability plugin activated in compiz settings manager?
- Is "use plamsa previews" (or whatever it's called) checked in the kde compability plugin?

It is possible to add the possibility to choose the theme of preview? I think that can be integrate in a theme, so I select a theme ex. deep and this theme is both the deep theme for the bar and also select a theme for the preview box, and the ability to change it separately. This can be great!

Yes, there are plans for making the window list theme-able. But I don't think there will be the possibility to use one theme for the group buttons and another for the window list since I plan to keep the custom colors in the preference dialog and I wan't theme makers to have the possibility to use the same color in both the popup and the buttons. This will also make backward compatibility with old themes possible (or at least reduce the amount needed to update the themes).

I have a few features higher up on the priority list than this feature though. You'll have to wait a few releases, but it will be there before the next "stable" version 0.50.

There is a bug that doesnt allow me to pin down Thunderbird, and the icon also changes when it appears on dockbarx. When I right-clicked on Thunderbird when it is opened on dockbarx, the only option I got is to make a custom launcher.

Another bug appears when I run SPE( stani python editor), dockbarx allows me to pin down the app but it automatically adjusts the icon and although the app is pinned down, I cannot launch it from dockbarx like the other apps.

I hope you fix these problems soon and after all, thank you very much for creating such a wonderful app.

Is there a way to adjust the distance between icons?
It seems that the icons are places too far apart

Report

M7S

That is depends on the theme. See minimalistic or old for themes where the icons sits close together.

Alternatively you can edit the theme you want to use yourself to something that suits you. It's mainly the gap and aspect_ratio of button_pixmap that needs to be adjusted to decrease the distance between the icons.

I have to agree with the above comment. DockbarX is a fantastic creation that I no longer want to live without, but 0.41 does indeed "break" the nicely integrated feel that 0.40 had with the rest of my environment.

The thing is that I can't go back to 0.40 because I'll miss the close button on window previews too much :P

Having said all that, it's your app. You don't need me to tell you that. You make it the way you want it as would I if it was mine. That's as it should be. I'm just hoping that my comments might help motivate you to make it as awesome as possible for the largest number of people possible :)

Anyway, I'll continue to use it regardless. It's impressive stuff.
