Would be nice if you would state the major changes.
"Go on my website" is no help for the mildly interested folks like me.
I tried once, but did not find the changelog there at first glance.

Hi, I've succesfully installed your app, and I have to say I am impressed. It is really very useful and well thought (well the config dialog is a bit of a problem ... ;).

I have just a simple question: is there a system tray?

I've tried to work this out but I do not know if this functionality does not exist, or if it's me not being able to use it.

Thanks.

Continua così.

Could you please add an option to remove the drop shadow created by KDE's composite manager from KXDocker.

After upgrading to 0.35 gDate no longer functions. I noticed in the change logs that gDate now displays the day of the week. Is there something else I need to modify to get it to function properly? I'm using the latest ver. of resources (.12). I also tried to compile from source, and tried the default xml file (I like the new default xml file), however nothing got it working. I may have to downgrade back to .33 ( the pillow redraw issue kept me away from .34 ).

I figured it out. kxdocker-resources-0.12 isn not fully compatible with 0.35 - the gdate format for it changed. I downloaded the Italiano theme for gdate 0.35 and got it working. I suppose it's a matter of time before the kxdocker-resources gets updated and a English version of gdate is ported to the new format. In the mean time I learn some Italiano!

Arrivederci! :)

Aaaargh...just switched from 0.33 to 0.35 (installed the resources, too).

How do I get rid of these filesystem symbols on the right side? I've got about 10 of these, they're practically useless and look awful!

maybe I'm in the wrong place here. I can't compile any plugins (trying GaClock,Gamarok).
It says moc: unknown option --o
moc seems to be some sort of media player on my system...
System: Mandriva (Mandrake) LE 2005

Make sure you have kdelibs-devel and libqt3-devel installed first. I also had modify the Makefile and specify the full path for MOC and UIC ( you may have to modify the Makefile in sub directories as well ).

MOC= /usr/lib/qt3/bin/moc
UIC = /usr/lib/qt3/bin/uic -nounload

And don't forget configure --prefix=/usr

So, I install the program (previously running .26) and everything seems to run hunky dory. Then I try and change the configuration and everytime it reverts back. If I change the thumbnail visibility, it reverts back to visible. If I try and change the height from -34 it reverts back to 34. I've edited the config as root, edited the text file, everything. I can't get it to work the way I would like :( Could you let me know if I'm doing something wrong?

Thanks.

hy there!!

is there a way to set the docker on a
custom position? i'm using xinerama and both screens are set to 1280x1024.
the docker is centered on the whole screen (it overlaps the monitors).
i've searched through the xml's but didn't find any clues.

thanks for any help

I love kxdocker but I'm using .26. Could anyone make a debian package for .30? I'd install from source but I can't get it to work. (no devel headers for 3.4)

Thanks a ton!

Why do you have this listed as version 0.29 when you have it listed on the download sites at 0.28? Sort of just gets it at the top of the liste eh?

As well, it won't store changes, specifically changes to the zooming of the icons. I don't like icon zooming. On my mac with osx on it I have zooming turned off. In your program there appears to be a way to turn off zooming. The only problem is that it doesn't work. Now why would that be? Errors, unable to account for variation in distros?

Hello... In version 0.28, there are problems with transparent themes and changeing desktops, if hiding the bar is disabled... it worked fine on previous versions...

I tried e-mailing but am not sure if it htit your spamfilter or you haven't had time to answer. Anyway please let me know if you got one or two e-mails last saturday signed g.d.
Meanwhile I have been testing 0.26 and the matchtasks is no longer working. What settings do I need to change to get this functionality back ?
Thanks for the great program and I will try and make some themes for you shortly.

Great app but the site really detracts and distracts. Nothing is dated. Suggest you follow the Source Forge format. It's not terribly pretty but it is easy to separate primary source from addons plugins and docs and then to appreciate the chronology.

Keep it simple.

Just my 3c

Hello, I've installed kxdocker-0.24 and it is all done except for a problem of visualization : when I execute application it remains on top for few seconds and then there isn't in the screen! Just the configuration tool in the kicker bar I can use but I cannot use the kxdocker bar..so what's the problem? I'm on kde 3.3.1
tnx

hi ... very good...

I love it its perfect...
however,... few comments

1 - i use xinerama, its really annoying in the middle of my two screen. please make an option to show on a single screen or something
2 - config dialog needs to be rethink
3 - right click configure should not be available, make it a kcontrol panel, like in OSX
4 - systray icon should not be there... i dont know what it is for
5 - i try to change the settings but it keeps getting hiding... I hate that... I want it always shown. which is a simple option on MAC
6 - right click on icon is SO confusion... reduce that, make it like MAC
