Description:

Ever wished your favourite editor/im/media player had system tray
docking capabilities? KDocker will help you dock any application in the system tray. This means you can dock openoffice, firefox, thunderbolt, anything! Just point and click. Works for both KDE and GNOME (and reportedly on XFCE)

You can also launch and dock applications using the command line
kdocker -mt xmms
kdocker -m gaim
kdocker kcalc
kdocker -l firefox (will autolaunch firefox)

kdocker -h for more options & features

IMPORTANT: Make sure KDocker is in your $PATH for Session Management to work. I
created a link in /usr/bin to point to kdocker. KDocker will automatically dock
all the programs that you had docked in your previous session when you log on
the next time (provided they were all docked when you logged out).

Read the INSTALL and README for all the gory details.

What advantages does this have over ksystraycmd, which already comes with KDE?

Hmm. I didnt know ksystraycmd even existed! I would have modified ksystraycmd source instead :)

The advantages (from what i saw just now) however are,
1. you can just click and select an application to dock using mouse. you have to ksystray -win winid :( or ksystray kwrite :((. i would rather dock apps which are already up and running on the desktop and have dock/undock whenever i want.
2. if you need to dock 10 application, 10 ksystraycmd seem to run. Only one instance of kdocker to dock any number of apps.
3. Cool balloning feature when title changes (try with xmms, its really nice)
4. kdocker works for both GNOME and KDE. I am not sure if ksystraycmd works.
5. I just checked in "Dock when minimise" and "Dock when obscured" :)

also i cannot find the source in cvs. any idea?
