well... two things i've forget to say:

- i'm on kde 3.3.1 and it's running
- what a pity there isn't a prog to set configuration :S

Hi, I think this is not compatible with kde 3.3 as I could see some main features are not working with kde 3.3 rc2.

I love your dock. I think it's the best effort to create an apple-like dock in KDE. The problem is that I have a dual screen desktop, using xinerama, and when I run your docker, it places itself in the middle of the two screens. I tried going in the configurator, under the window tab and clicking on the "left" option (in order to have it on the left main screen), but it's disabled for some reason. Is there a way that your dock supports xinerama, so that you can place it in the middle of your main scrren? Ksmoothdock does have tha feature and it works quite well, but as I said I like your dock most of all.

Thanks.

Alex

hi! osxbar is quite cool, but I have 1 problem with it -its very slow. as is smoothdock. But - and I really dont understand why - kooldock is much faster, its fast enough to work smooth on my computer. I'm no coder, but maybe someone can have a look at their code (c++ too) to see why its fast?

Have you tried 0.21? It's very fast.

I'll try the latest. lets see how fast it is...

btw ksmoothdock became faster, too - actually its faster than kooldock now, for me... guess there is much left to optimize, if optimizations are done so easilly.

I am having the same problem as the two people mentioned above with 0.20 from source on SuSE 9.0 with KDE 3.2.2 (I realize their are binaries but the host that has them for SuSE seems to be down)

Hope you get net access back soon,

Ciao,

Well after a bunch of googling a found the culprit. These errors are being caused by stale autom4te.cache files in the tarball. So the solution is a simple:
# rm -r autom4te.cache/
in the folder this was unpacked to, followed by another make and you should be set to go.

Cheers, I am off to see how I like this new toy (I last used osXbar 1.0.20)

I think it would be nice to have an option to make the mini-icons in the taskbar the same as the ones in the top-left corner of the window-decoration. Kind of like ksmoothdock does, only with the mini-screenshot of the application too of course.

An easy fix! Install selinux-devel and you should be fine.

A lot of people have run into this error elsewhere on other software programs - especially strange since on none of the installations (including mine) was selinux enabled.

In configure, when checks for libz it says that maybe it had pick an old version installed by XFree86, and I must remove it.
What shall I do?
I have debian, kernel 2.6.4, kde 3.2.2

- check for /usr/X11R6/include/zlib.h
- rename it to e.g. out.zlib.h (you may also delete it, but this is the safe way)
- recompile
