Looking for a decent Dock

Postby symon1980 » Thu Mar 13, 2008 9:24 am

Hi guys.
Was wondering if anybody can recommend a good dock that is easy to install, and works well. I use to use Gdesklets,
and it worked great on ubuntu gnome, i have tried it on mint kde and the desklets work fine, but something is wrong
with the toolbar dock. When i right click on it to add icons, nothing happens... :s anyone have the same problem or know
how to fix this? cause i love Gdesklets.
I have tried quite a few other docks like, A.W.N, Tux bar, KoolDock, and several others, but they seem to be crappy:( some of them don't let you move the
position of the dock so it sits on top of your actual taskbar. I want it to sit just above it. KoolDock was ok, but had that same problem, as well with a.w.n. correct me if
im wrong.
Anyways, thanx :) (im using mint kde)

go back to AWN, you'll find that with enough pratting around and trawling through the wiki on the site you'll be able to make it almost anything you want it to be. Just remember to install AWN extras, otherwise, like you found it'll be boring and plain. Appart from that, I have no suggestions, unless you get rocketdock working, thats nice :-)

is there any chance of getting the AWN extras into the Software Portal? The applets make all the difference
