    Default Cairo-Dock 3.2 Improves Multi-Screen Support

    Phoronix: Cairo-Dock 3.2 Improves Multi-Screen Support

    Cairo-Dock 3.2 has been released and it improves multi-screen support for the animated application launch bar/dock. There's also a new applet and plug-in...

    glad it's making progress

    been a long time since I installed it for the last time (2 years ago in fact)


    will give it a try again as a replacement for XFCE's dock / panel

    Very nice. Been using the much older version 2.4 from rpmfusion. Glad to see they have their own Fedora repo now. To install, just do:

    Code:
    sudo rpm -i http://download.tuxfamily.org/glxdock/repository/fedora/fedora-18/noarch/repo-cairo-dock-1.0-1.fc18.noarch.rpm 
    sudo yum install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plugins
    It's in my opinion the best looking dock for Linux. The configurability is almost too extensive, that's saying something from a KDE user who likes more options. You need to spend a couple hours exploring the options to make it do exactly what you want.

    Well you can go with the default theme, or just select one of the may ready-to-use themes available, and be using it within 30 seconds.

    Or you can go through the advanced configuration and make it the way you want (which other shells don't let you do, except KDE). So both types of users are happy :-)

    Yes it definitely comes with some quite nice themes. Thank you for the really nice work.
