At least as an option, could be nice to provide a dock bar for E16, many users could miss to have it
A good candidate can be cairo-dock, as suggested by @Rebel450
But let's see if we have other candidates too!
So let's discuss if we should include cairo-dock or other dock available on e16 on this thread
hum, maybe we don't need the old e16 Engage, just trying "cairo-dock" as suggested @Rebel450 and it looks to be pretty good!, i mean, well featured
maybe a bit slow, sometimes? at least on my nettop, but everything feels slow on it lol
maybe could a good option to include it by default with e16 (and opened by default in the "first desktop session" just like conky, later, up to the user to run it if wants to have it)
Synaptik is telling me - 1 broken package - can not be resolved (but not which one )
How did you install it ??
lol synaptics sucks, use apt on commandline
api cairo-dock libexo-1-0 cairo-dock-xfce-integration-plug-in
i think that @yoda would like this one for his e16
the pager of that dock is bitting me
useless, annoying and got stuck my mouse for a while, i disabled it
... can not be found
apt install gnome settings daemon
then (for making sure that you snatch all depending packages cairo dock may need)
activating OpenGL ? = Yes
WOW beautifull ( installed on my new Desktop installation )
I would put it as a default as " a lot of people " are used to docks
I think I can add a "selector" of which apps enable by default (in every run) on new e16 desktop creation, like:
other suggestions to include?
what is weird with the DOCK is when our mouse leave the dock, in my case ( 2 screen may be the problem) the mouse jump far away up on my screen... And not just next to the DOCK I just left
Yeah I saw that, try to disable the pager (the virtual-desktops gadget transparent) of cairo-dock, seemed like to fix it
the default FileManager then
how to add an apllication to the startup items on 372_a ? (Cairo Dock in this case)
tks @Thanatermesis the " focus window thing of e16" fixed it
I now have, through the dock an easy way for 2 things I live, Weather and time LOL
e16 Applet were not good for that on a large screen
there's already one,
I mean which default applications to automatically start (like conky) for e16
how to add an apllication to the startup items on 372_a ?
echo "cairo-dock" >> "$HOME/.e16/startup-applications.list"
just copy-paste all that in your terminal
it should close cairo-dock and then automatically open in on E reload, tell me if worked
you can do hte same with conky if you want it, mentions: @yoda
