Description:

A kool dock for KDE. It attemps to resemble the Mac OSX dock. This is improved koolDock v0.3 (which is base on ksmoothdock 2.1), which isn't my program, but it isn't officailly developed for about two years.

Features:

App Launcher.
On Screen text display (over icons).
Drag&Drop app list.
Auto-Hide.
Nice hide-show animation.
Transparency.
Xinerama support.
Others.

If you experience problems compiling KoolDock please do the following:
#
# make -f Makefile.cvs
# ./configure
# make; make install

IMPORTANT: For GNOME users - if you experience problems with launchers (can't open and edit), you probably don't have KDEbase istalled. Installing this package should solve this problems.

IMPORTANT: If you have something wrong in settings, and kooldock don't appear, you can run
# kooldock -o
to have preferences window at start.

If you have any problems or bugs with kooldock, you can post information about it in comments or send it to bisiek op.pl (after bisiek insert 'at' symbol).

I prepare only source and I probably can't help with packgages made by other people.

If configure script fails while checking X server, you probably need to install the xlibs-dev package. If it won't help try these: build-essensial libqt3-mt-dev libqt3-compat-header kdelibs4-dev kdebase-dev. Thanks to Mrmonday for the solution.

SVN repository checkout:
svn co https://kooldock.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/kooldock kooldock


I can't continue developing Kooldock - I won't stop working on it, but that work will much slower than now. If you want to help - I will help you to understand the code.

 Vertical

 
 by Hirs on: Jan 3 2007
 
Score 50%

is there any chance to make kooldock vertical? I have my windows list on the bottom of the desktop and sometimes I accidentally click on an app launcher instead of the window I want to raise.

I would like not to be so careful unminimizing windows

I've notice that is a bit unstable, there are random crashes

Thank you for maintaining kooldock

Yes, I'm going to implement this. I hope in future it will be possible to choose edge of screen on which kooldock has to appear.

Tell me more about this, when kooldock crashes?

This Makefile is only for the CVS repository
This will be deleted before making the distribution

*** YOU'RE USING automake (GNU automake) 1.10.
*** KDE requires automake 1.6.1 or newer
make[1]: ** [cvs] Erro 1
make: ** [all] Erro 2

I have much respect for you, to writing this program, however it had some annoying things;)
I became fancy to it, and I think I'll keep up changing it.

 openSUSE 10.2 RPM

nice job. but it a little slow in my system (doesn't happen with ksmoothdock).

the rpms are at my website (i586) and openSUSE build service (i586, x86_64).

btw i have to remove the de.po file, because it sized 0 byte which causing compile problem.

Hi

It opens, closes or always work slowly? Have you used kooldock v0.3? If yes, was there this problem, or it's only in my version?

Thx, I haven't noticed it, it'll be removed in new version.

hmm weird, now it's fast. maybe because that was the first time i use it?
btw i notice it leaves an artifact when i minimize a window, but when i put my mouse over kooldock, the artifact's gone.
here's the screenshot:

i hope you realize that the last 3 posts are not made by me (look at the user name and the photo then compare them to mine).
i already report this to the kde-apps team.

Yes I've notice it;)
I found similar bug, and I fixed it (this version isn't released yet). But now i realized, that screen background is moved to the left - i don't konw why.

Using Beryl as window manager the window-deco-shadow is visible even if the window-deco is not shown

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
