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.

 Translation

There is also some English in the source which must be touched directly.

Ok, I've prepared PO template with updated string table. You can download it here
http://kooldock.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/*checkout*/kooldock/po/kooldock.pot

It's necessary to rename it to {language symbol}.po (i.e. for polish it's pl.po for french fr.po).
You can translate it in programs like poEdit or do it in any text editor.
Inside the file you'll find such lines:

msgid "&Edit item"
msgstr ""

Mgsgid contains original text, and msgstr its translation. Don't stay empty translatios, they shold be removed then.

You can send me filled file via email.

no luck thusfar. It stays in English :-/
Made sure the nl.po is fetched in the makefile for po, no avail.
I have to say that there's something wrong with unsermake at my place, it spits out an error at all times, so i don't use unsermake (it's flagged out in the admin/cvs.sh file) This might be of influence?
I might translate the kooldock/*.ui-files (that works ok), but i suppose that's not the idea.
I'm looking further.

Ok, so then it's necessary to remove the makefile and makefile.in from folder ./po and run auntomake procedures again. It will create nl.mo or nl.gmo which make install will put in proper place.

I think it's good to not use unsermake.
I'm planning to add necessary files, that it will be not necessary to use auto* tools anymore, so you can send me nl.po, to prepare nl.mo.

 Wish

As I don't find a wishlist I'll request a feature here.
The feature is to the taskbar behave like the kxdocker: the items that already have a icon on kooldock don't create another icon on the taskbar, but set a mark on that icon, like an arrow below the icon. In my opinion this will turn the desing less bloated with a great number of windows open.
Another feature I think that would be nice is a icon for the trash can, indicating if it's empty or not.
Of course, these are only sugestions.
Keep doing this great job.
P.S.: Sorry for the bad english, I'm still learning.

Hey,

possibly a stupid question, but I can't find to option for locating kooldock on the right edge of my screen... which should be possible as far I can tell from the preview pictures...

Cheers,

Bolleg

Hi

Probably you haven't set this option, and kooldock appears on bottom (default).
To do this right click on kooldock, and choose "Edit preferences" somewhere there. In preferences window is a tab named "Position and speed", and it allows to change kooldock's screen position.

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
