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.


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

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.

- Improved icon positioning.
- Added 'Show only minimized' option.
- Disabled systray support.

Ok, I think that's not big problem. But now, I'm going to make some bigger changes, so the new options probably won't work propertly.

Great work, but I was wondering why it is not possible yet to place the dock in the other edges of the srceen?

Because I don't have much time for kooldock. Especially I'm currently doing it alone.

I love this wee app! I use it in concert with kicker. Kicker has all the regular menus, with kooldock I put in only my top favs. It makes everything so much easier and compliments kicker quite nicely. Well done and thank you!

It's well done, but doesn't interact well with Beryl. It's a shame, really; since I cannot get kxdocker working at all. :(

Nice dock! But please can you add option to "dont move with icons while mouse is on same icon". Example: I move with curson on icon and when i move left or right, but still on same icon, dock is moving, zooming... I think, that better would be, that dock will move, zoome only when i move curson on another icon.

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.
