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.

 filtering?

 
 by xtekhne on: Sep 23 2007
 
Score 50%

Would it be possible to launch several kooldock instances, each one docking specific category of applications, identified by the program name or the window class?

E.g. i would like to group into one kooldock all kwrite and all lyx editor programs.

Thank you


Pol

Multiple instances: Currently it can be done only by running it as different users. However - it's not very problematic and can be solved.

Filtering: I understand, you want to show only specified application in kooldock. That is more difficult, but also possible.

In the main description of this app, you mention that ksmoothdock hasn't been officially developed in 2 years. This is incorrect - ksmoothdock had a new release April 19th, 2007. http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=6585


Personally, I like both branches however - it would be nice to get all the speed and features of these code sets truly combined.

Try to disable 'Navigation menu' option - that should help.

Hello,
no chance, starting kooldock without configuration file, deactivating 'navigation' ends again up in a direct crash of the windows manager (I use compiz).
Is there a logfile I can see what happens? Are there some settings I have to set in compiz to get it running?
I love the kooldock and want it back :-)


regards, Benson

Check the version from SVN - I have made some changes and it should work.

I love you, it works!
I got it compiled (OPENSuse 10.3) without problems and until now it works without crashing my compiz-fusion.

I did also an upgrade for my compiz installation to compiz6.2 and compiz-fusion 6.0. Maybe it has also an impact on kooldock, but the old (released) version of kooldock still crashes on the new compiz screen ...

Thank you again!


regards, Benson

I just compiled from SVN. It installed without a hitch, but when I run it, it crashes. I tried running "kooldock -o" with the same results. Here's the backtrace.

 Can't install

Hi,
I tried to install it, I missed a lot of packages, some of them fixed...still have a problem that I'm not able to solve:
This is what configure script replyes:
checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!

Any idea how to solve this??
Thanks!

It seems you need to innstall kdelibs-devel, kdelibs-dev, or something like that for your distro, if these two won't be suitable.

Have you previously installed kooldock from source, or from any kind of compiled package?

Hi, I installed it from the tar.gz file.
I did not find any Mandriva version...only .deb (not rpm).

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.
