Thanks :-)

It's nice to have also users from the GNOME side :-)

To respond your questions:

1.) About cairo-dock and closing/hiding dialogs: Frankly I didn't implement any behaviour for closing/hiding. This means that the dialog inherits the default behaviour of the "KConfigDialog" class. At least this is truth for the "general settings dialog" and the "stream settings dialog". As you report, this doesn't seem to be a good solution for cairo-dock. The "about" dialog (I suppose you mean this dialog when you say "help" dialog?) doesn't even has an implementation. It is automatically generated by the KDE framework, whichs copies the content from the general application information. I don't have any influance on the way this dialog is generated or closed. Well, I'm not sure, but it seems that this a problem of the interaction betweeen the cairo-dock framework and the KDE framework (or the Qt framework, which is the underlaying framework for KDE).

2.) About the tooltips/whatsthis: Also the tooltips and the "What's this" help are generated automatically by Qt from the information with which the widgets (buttons, sliders etc.) are created. I don't have any own implementation of this behaviour. Also in this case, it seems to be an interoperability. I supose it's somewhere between Qt and Unity. Qt tries to autodetect the desktop environment which is used and than tries to adopt it's appearance to the widget style and color scheme of this desktop environment. This works normally quite well. Here it seems to fail - eiter because Unity forces Qt to use a wrong color scheme of (IMHO more likly) because Qt doesn't detect correctly the color scheme of Unity. Anyway, it seems to be an interaction problem.

I'm sorry to not help you more. But this is a little bit "out of scope". And currently I'm quite busy with my job and don't have much time for programming. But thanks for your feedback.

That's a good idea. It's on our TODO list, but as I'm quiet busy now with other tasks, it will take some time. We will raise the priority of this feature, but it may take some months ...

Yes, that's not working nice actually. However, we plan to try automatically (and silently) with some standard user agent strings (these that are present in the list in the configuration dialog) if a connection is refused. This would solve the problem for all streams that accept at least _one_ of the user agent strings in our current list. Would this be sufficient?

Hm, I'm not sure with this one. From my point of view this is the task of a multimedia player. Which is your use case (= in which context, and doing which task, do you want to need this feature)?

Yes, that would be fine. It will need a whole rewrite of all parts that do the storage (file saving ...). These parts are quite basic actually, but rewriting them could give more flexibility, implementing features like yours. I'm sorry, this is a huge task and probably will not be done in the next 2 years - we just don't have enough developers to do this.

Thanks for your opinion!
