Ummmm Could you fix your link to the kleardock page? It reads.

http://http//kleardock.sourceforge.net and it sends poor firefox to microsoft.com if you click on it. (Mozilla goes to google.)

Thanks

I would like to have autohide feature like in kasbar so it would slide on screen when mouse cursor is at the bottom(or other location) of the screen.

Also, KlearDock segfaults if smalliconsize equals bigiconsize.

So in line 1224 of kleardock.cpp
change:
if (iwSmall > iwBig)
to:
if (iwSmall >= iwBig)

that should fix it.

I tried to put those to same size because I don't like icon zooming :P

Any clues? I can see what the problem is, I just have no idea how to remedy it. I had everything working fine before, then I slicked my system and reinstalled RH9. Now I'm getting this error...?

Thanks,

Hi Dan!

Looks like you need libart_lgpl. Either install it via RPM or check out this website http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/gnome/libart_lgpl.html

Good luck!

Ksmoothdock does work and is fun to play with, but there are still very annoying visual oddities :
* when the mouse enters in the bar zone from the top, it grows a lot for 1/4 second before it takes its final size
* when the mouse enters from the left, the bar grows all in a sudden (not smooth at all)
* if the mouse is on the bar, and moved slowly to the right, the bar keeps blinking (probably a bug)

I hope that these issues are resolved in ksmoothdock cvs.

kleardock works perfectly compared to ksmoothdock. There is perhaps only the tooltips, which appear too fast :)

Hi, I'm relatively new to linux. I just found Kleardock the other day, and I have it working, but - I have to start it manually by double-clicking the kleardock executable. Then Kicker and Kleardock are both running, and if I kill Kicker, the kicker menu on Kleardock no longer works. Can anyone help me get it set up corretly so that Kleardock replaces Kicker (and works)? I followed the instructions on the site, and am still having the same problem...

I'm running RH9, and am totally in love with Kleardock. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

In your $HOME their is a Autostart folder located at ~/.kde/Autostart (you won't see it in konq as .folders are hidden). Just put a link in it to kleardock. In the console, just type: "cd ~/.kde/Autostart;ln -s `which kleardock`;" (without the ") and it should work. If you want more tips, their are some on the web page.

I am also having the problem with the Kmenu not working when I hide the kicker. I had everthing setup in my autostart menu to hide the kicker an start kleardock but the kmenu does not work in this configuration, only when the kicker is present. I have searched all over the place trying to find information about a command line for the kmenu in Kleardock that will not require the kicker to be present, but have had no luck. If anyone has this info could you either share this or point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.

First of all thanks to everyone who replied.

The download link has been fixed, and as for the bugs that hybrid has noticed: The fixes are being worked on, and should be in CVS by the end of the week. For the next release I'm waiting till I've finished the KControlCenter module for it...

Hi, thank you for continueing the development of KSmoothDock.

Unfortunately there's a bug in Kleardock concerning the taskbar. The first three Icons are zoomed correctly, but the next Icons behave strangely, like they are not zoomed or just a bit. Old KSmoothDock is running fine.

A further Problem with the taskbar is that it gets bigger than the size of the screen when many windows are open, so some icons are no longer accessable. Maybe a grouping facillity would help off.

System:

Suse 9.0
Kde 3.2 CVS

I experience these problems too. Also, the image in miniature desktops is inconsistent.

That aside, this looks like it's off to a great start. Well done.

Could you mail me with preferably a screen shot of the bar (but not to big since I'm on dialup). Since I thought I had that one solved, and it works on my box(s). It could also come from the fact that your useing an unstable kde. I've only tested up until 3.1.4.

True enough, the download link doesn't work but this project is on sourceforge so it's quite easy to find...
