======================================

New in this version:
I made the overall bar prettier -again-, to me at least, backdrops are now colorized for active window!!... and fixed a bug, see changelog

as always, old versions included


Awright. The first thing you want to do, since this is a mod, is to install this original version:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/DockbarX?content=101604

then just extract and run the install.sh script and it will install itself automagically... should the script fail, run these commands(inside the folder you just extracted, assuming you installed the unmodified one right):

sudo cp ./dockbarx.py /usr/bin/dockbarx.py
cp ./launcher_icon.png ~/.dockbar/launcher_icon.png

And that should be it, if you have the original version running, delete it from the panel and add it again to get the new code running.

by the way, this mod doesn't work on vertical panels (yet...)

Thanks to rassen for the idea.

Hi there, i'm using dockbarx, recently updated to 0.23.2, and i would be glad if you updated your theme, because it doesn't work with current version of dockbar...
I did use your theme but it made the new version of the bar lose some new functionalities.

Btw, I found a bug in it. If you switch to a group of findows, e.g. firefox, the popup list won't show then. So you're unable to switch to another window in the same group. And sometimes it fail to remove the window even if it's closed but this is too inconsistent and rare.

The main code is not mine, so i can't tell you exactly what's going on... anyways i haven't been able to reproduce the 'can't see list' one... odd
and about the other one... maybe your programs aren't killing themselves right? just a guess...

however if you feel like contributing, file those bugs at
https://launchpad.net/dockbar
if they aren't there already

The way to reproduce is easy:

1) open some firefox windows, they should be under the single icon on the panel.

2) click the icon twice to minimize and maximize windows. You'll notice a popup window with the list of firefox'es.

3) move a cursor away to make the popup window dissapear.

4) hove the icon again with the mouse. A window should pop-up, but it doesn't.

There is no such bug in the vanilla dockbar and it's modification dockbarX, so you might broke something apparently.

It seems that I found the problem (btw, only in mod-2 and mod-3, mod-1 seems working):
