KXDocker is as slower than OSX dock as a MacLaren is slower than a Ferrari :-) (italian pride... isn't it, stefano?)

what did you do? you've made ferrari? or you've made the mac osx docker? if neither, please be more polite.

oh, i do have a mac... with osx as well! It's quite clear that my comment was ironic.
I really think that KXdocker is slow, I tried it and what I said makes sense (maybe, only in my case).
And I'm Italian too, so I can be proud of Ferrari!

Apart that, I wish to tell Stefano to continue his work: all of us (or many of us) are waiting for such a cool app to be available for Linux too! Sorry for my tone (maybe it didn't help stefano), but take it easy next time!

Actually the change log is next to the download link. Anyway, I added the arg for compiler, and it was fast overall, but very slow at restoring the original state.

Also, my X window frooze (kbd, mouse included) when I was just playing around with the zooming effect. Had to hard reboot.

btw, does anyone know of a script or something that will auto-detect if X has frozen, and just kill the X server ?


Overall its a very nice app, heading the right direction, just needs to iron out some minor issues. Thanks!

you can telnet to that machine and terminate the x server.

I can't telnet/ssh to that machine because it is the only home desktop system and is assigned IP address dynamically.

Please at least put some changes here so we can see what has changed. You say "changelog is on my website", but I cannot find it on your website. I am not going to download the source tarball just to get the changelog.

This is common courtesy. You don't have to put the entire changelog here, but at least tell us what has changed since the last version.

No kidding. I've stopped using this app mostly because of this. After the second time, I figured there was no ChangeLog on the website and just stopped caring.

This guy is making something that no-one (to my knowledge) has successfully implemented in linux, and you guys are bitching about changelogs? this is a fantastic piece of work, is a dream to use, and looks good too. As someone who has posted a number of things to kde-look, I can sympathise with Stefano. Maintaining information in a number of places is time consuming. He's provided a changelog, and a link to it. In my view, that is plenty. If you don't use the app because of this, the only loser is you.

however, as the other poster said, 0.5 is awefully slow... 0.3 was a lot better.

The Smooth performance is not so good, for me (unusable).
Had set the speed parameters to 0, no
solution.
Version before 0.3c worked great.

I'm going to try this as soon as I get Fedora v2beta downloaded and installed. I'm an Aqua-Softian over a year now, but I'm bored with Windows. Now I have a whole other OS to emulate to OSX. Great days ahead!

I made a Suse 9.0 rpm for it but its to large to upload on this website! If you could tell me a server that would allow me to use more than 500k I could use that than link to it here on kde-look.

I'm really interested in your Suse 9.0 rpm, but I can't find it on your website... :(

0.3c works after
first: deleting ~/.kde/share/apps/kxdocker dir
second: make install
however, it seems to be a bit slow

Report

ok, for more speed:
set that Sleep Variables to Zero! ("0")
0.3c works great by the way ;-)
