Description:

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.

Features:

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

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.

1) Instead of using Kooldock's K menu, you can add manually .desktop shortcut, that do same thing. So:
Add icon to kooldock's quick launch, name it i.e. kmenu, and as file to run type:
dcop kicker kicker popupKMenu 0
Choose icon, and click OK. Place that icon where you want it, and apply settings.
Now, open kooldock, and right click on your new icon, and click 'Edit Element'.
Open third tab (Program), and click button 'Advanced options'. In window, that the button would have opened, should be 'Show notification' or something like that - is it's ticked, uncheck that box.
Done.

2) As path to file use:
konqueror /path/to/your/folder
If you use KDE4 and dolphin, type dolphin instead of konqueror.

3) You can use ordinary autostart from KDE. It's usually placed in ~/.kde/Autostart
Create there a text file, and write in it:

#! /bin/bash
kooldock

or wahtever you need, and give it 'exectuable' status.

 kde button

Hi!. I've been trying several dock types, and I think this one is the better !!..

I installed it on my laptop first, and I've got an issue when I set the Show KDE button check, it kills the X server. My laptop is a Fedora 8 box + Compiz + Emerald.

The weird thing is that it works fine on my desktop computer under Fedora 6, without compiz/emerald extensions.

How should I trace this kind of X killing errors?

Cheers!

 glitch out

 
 by zyxyellowxyz13 on: Mar 18 2008

I have been looking around this site and happily stumbled upon this app. I was very excited, and showed my husband when he got home. (I am not that good when it comes to installing new things onto the computer as he is.)
He proceeded to tell me that he really liked this app. and downloaded it for me, and installed it.
No errors acured while installing it, but some happened once it was up and running.
He announced that it was installed and up and running, so I came over to look. I was very happy with what it looked like.
He moused over the icons to show me how it resembles that of OSX, and in the middle of mousing over the icons, the dock disappeared.

Any reason as to why this would happen?


I use Kubuntu 7.10 with KDE 3.5.5

Hi

Version 0.4.7 is a bit buggy, and likes to crash in unexpected situations.
I recomend to use version from SVN. If you are already using it, and problem appears in that version, then it's unfixed yet.

To download version from SVN use this command (in an empty folder):
svn co https://kooldock.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/kooldock kooldock

 systray support?

 
 by dspolleke on: Apr 9 2008

I would like to have (or to test) systray support because i want to get rid of kicker...

Is there a way to do so? or a workaround to still have the systray icons for KNetworkManager, KMix, Kpowersafe openSUSE Updater and so on...

Hi

That's a bit problematic - I'm not good enough to add systray support that colud be satisfying.

But maybe during holidays I'll try to do something about it.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
