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.

 adding menus

Great work!
I have only one question: how to add entire menus to kooldock? I see it is possible 'cause I have KMenu, but how to add, for example, the System menu? Dragging-and-dropping doesn't work...
Thank you

Hi

I understand, you tried to add files to kooldock with drag'n'drop method? It's not implemented yet, but I hope I cope with it, and this feature probably will be in next version.

Hm. Maybe I didn't make myself clear enough.
The dragging-and-dropping is not my real point, if there's a workaround: I mean, I can add launchers without any problem, but I would like to add also menus, other than KMenu. Is it possible to do it with the current version?

Hi

No, it's not possible to do in current version. It's surely possible, but I have some difficulties with it, so I'm not sure whether it will be added soon.

Yet, I'm able to do this. What extentions exactly do you want to add, only running external applications, or something more?

I'm not the original requester but I would like to be able to have also icons for running commands as you can in the Kmenu.

Would be great if it could be like the new menus on Leopard's dock or those flying menus that ObjectDock(a Windows Dock) has.

Anyway, great job you have already done, thanks.

Hi

Ad. 'Flying mneus' - I don't think I could do it.

But probably there will be possible to create own menu for each launcher icon.

 No Kooldock

Seem to be having a little problem. I'm running SimplyMepis 6.5, 32bit, with Beryl, and after I installed it, it shows that it's installed correctly. 1, I can't find the file in any list, though I've found it in the bin folder. However, I can't see it when I run the file! When I first start Mepis, in the upper left hand corner I see something that MAY resemble the dock, and the icons kind of load, and then poof, disappear again. No matter what I do, I can not get them back on the screen. Any idea?

Hi

I'll check how kooldock works with beryl again. Now, I can tell only about kooldock's command line usage - kooldock -k kills all kooldock's, and kooldock -o makes, that settings window will be shown at start.
And, if you are using kooldock v 0.4.6 I suggest use latest version, from SVN repository, maybe it will work better.

 Performence prob (?)

 
 by rdexter on: Jul 29 2007
 
Score 50%

Hi!

First of all this tool looks really great, compiled it with the option on your page and started with the "-o" option.

Zooming works well, but:
when the icons are small and I move the cursor on them, at the beginning of the zoom mechanism, there is a short flicker. I guess it's the background image, it flickers shortly as a rectangle about in the size of the maximized icons box.

Would really like to use this tool, but this flickering looks bad. When I change the zoom speed, you see, that this flicker (one time) is exactly on the beginng of the zoom mechanism.

Any suggestions?
Thanks Dex

As i remember that flicker was appearing, when kooldock was in non-autohide mode. This one should be fixed (this version isn't publicated yet), but now I noticed, that there is another bug in autohide mode.

Hi, in the package tar.gz downloaded from the link, there is no a configure file.
How can I manage to install it?
I tried also autoconf config.in.in but...seems not working (OS Mandriva 2007)

Tanks!

For version 0.4.6
make -f Makefile.dist
should do the trick, but for source code from SVN use this:
make -f Makefile.cvs

I recomend to use version from SVN - it's much better (however it's not complited yet, and some features don't work fully, or don't do anything).

I prepared czech localization file for kooldock. It is available for download here:

Please try it and add it in the next release version of kooldock.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
