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.

Thank you for the reply. Got some make-errors like automake isn't found (while it's there in a higher than necessary version), 'no module named bin' etc.
I suppose it's not compatible with Mandr* and just ment for Debian, is that right?

I've put there the same compilation scripts, as in v 0.4.6. I'll try to update my kdevelop, and use the newest ones.

Hi,
i think kooldock is very nice to have, so we'll go on till i get this right. Maybe later Dutch translation.
I changed the admin/cvs.sh so it doesn't check so stringently for Automake (commented the case-construct out :-).
Now it will make a ./configure file which runs ok, till it gets to the making of Makefiles and it complains about missing Makefile.in on every subdir. These files are missing and the produced Makefiles are 0 bytes...
Any idea?

Hmm, now I noticed, you wrote that, ./configure complains about missing makefile.in files. Are they really missing?

make -f Makefile.dist

should create it with configure script.

Hi,yes they are there, with length zero (empty). At the end (?) of 'make -f Makefile.dist' it says:
Creating Makefile templates - Traceback (most recent calls last:)
File "<string>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named bin
make[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

Guess automake produces all Makefile.in neatly but then ???

Mmm, checked again. Firstly removed all produced files on my side. Then rerun the make -f Makefile.dist. It produces the configure-script but not even the config.h or any "Makefile" at all... Strange... Errors as given before

Hi Blase,
fixed the problem compiling kooldock. The culprit seems "unsermake". Commented out the check for version of automake in admin/cvs.sh and also in that location replaced the line $AUTOMAKE for creating the makefiles with an identical call to "automake".
That's all...
Anyhow, next step might be a Dutch translation (just for the fun of it). If you have suggestions for how to go about this, please let me know.

I'm glad it'd possible to compile. I forget to ask which version of automake you're using? I've checked the code, and it should work even with v 1.10.

If you want technical info, about translation, then the files are in folder ../po
There is file kooldock.pot which is empty translation file. Italian translation is based on this file, and have the same entries. Other are outdated.

my automake is version 1.9.6
The trick is that the cvs-system is ment as version-control system, not to facilitate end-users.
You may find that the errors i ran into are wide-spread on many items posted on the kde-look forum. So a common distribution-method is obviously incorrect.
I'm not deep enough into KDE though to supply the correct method right-away :-)
It might be wise to drop the "make -f Makefile.dist" routine completely. We'll talk again!

I'll check the forum. I haven't noticed search facility, and it could take me some time.

"drop make -f Makefile.dist" - I thought it's platform dependent. But if it isn't, then I'll add these files in 0.4.7.

This is a very neat program. I had no problem installing 0.4.6 on Mandriva 2007 per your instructions.

but I need to turn it off. It always shows up when i dont want it to because my taskbar is at bottom screen. kooldock -o only worked the first time i used it, where are the settings to turn this off. I will uninstall if I have to, but its too cool. Is ther an OFF button?

If you right click it, in menu you can find 'Options', and there you can choose where kooldock has to appear.

Ps. Thank, you gave me an idea - open on click, I'll add it in new version.

Very nice application!

Just a few ideas for the settings dialog:
* I´m unable to change the icon of applications i already added, dont i find the button or isn´t that possible?
* An "Apply"-Button would be very, veryl useful...

And sometimes there are a few graphical errors, just like pieces of windows usw... if you need one, i´ll send you a screenshot...
but it´s helpfull, really =)

Hi

1. Yum must use context menu of icon on dock, not in configuration. I haven't noticed it, I'll fix it soon.

2. It's a bit difficult. Probably, I won't add it in near future.

3. I've made some changes, that in incoming version it'll be fixed.

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
