Has anyone set up Cairo Dock in this manner in #! Wally OB?

Hi there folks,

Allow me to direct your attention to this:

I'm talking about the app scroller on the side and not the bar on top.  Has anyone done this?  More importantly, could someone maybe explain to me how to do this? smile

I'd love, love, love to have this feature as my desktop is laid out in a manner that I could squeeze that between my app window and Conky.

Thanks for any thoughts or help you can provide!

^ that is a theme or theme/setting for Cairo-Dock that is easy to create.   You could even get that config from whoever created it if they will send it to you

I have setup and used Cairo-Dock but got rid of it due to mass memory leak issues that never seemed to get corrected

Thanks a bunch, VastOne.  I did post a comment, but since the vid is from 2011, I don't have very high hopes of getting it.

I'll try it on a clone of my VM before I commit to anything and will watch for the memory issue.

Thanks a bunch for your time!

I use docky exactly like that. (depends on mono though, and needs a compositor (compiz for me) i think compton might work.
not sure how to get all the icons like that. change them in /usr/whatever...
and it hides intelligently (like the OSX dock)
a lightweight version would be xfce panel not so impressive though.

Hi there wux and thanks very much for your post.  I am trying docky but it looks like it's bound to a screen edge which won't work for me.  I was hoping to have it sandwiched between the app windows and conky.

Maybe I'll give Cairo a shot and see if I can pull it off that way.

sorry didn't read your post correctly.

Hi there again smile

After placing it on the left and setting it to autohide, I'm beginning to really like docky and don't think I'll follow through with my initial plan.  Thanks a bunch for putting me on to it.  It's very smooth, even in a VM.

'tis indeed slick - on intelli-hide i often forget it's there, then end up wading through a bunch of dropdown menus  yikes
as you've probably seen it makes for a reasonable pager/task bar thing as well, with glowing colours for a sort of notification thing.
better make your own video on youtube  smile
