Default Cairo Dock Plugins
Cairo-Dock-Plugins for Cairo-Dock is a light and eye-candy dock to launch your
programs easily. It uses Cairo / OpenGL to render nice graphics (many in
correlation with Compiz) with hardware acceleration. It's fully configurable
and customizable and can be a taskbar too. You can easily plug applets into it
or in a desklet mode.

A PBI has been created and is currently in testing. It should become available shortly.

I have tested Cairo-Dock 2.1.3-9 (8.x - 32 bit version) and it appears to have a few issues:

1: The non-3D enabled setting does not work at all and it always boots into the 3D enabled version.

2: The configuration utility for the program is broken and fails to open. This prevents the user from being able to change any setting for the program.

3: The program seems to be able to start only about 50% of the other programs I have installed on my system, for the others it seems to have a problem with the retrieving the proper string for the binary.

These appear to be problems with the actual program rather then the PBI module, but I have not verified that. If someone would like to test this and take a shot at fixing them, you can download and intall the current PBI from the FTP server at:

Once these issues have been remedied I would be happy to re-test and approve the PBI.
