I have been using Cairo-dock in other distros, mainly Gnome2/3 and some are friendlier than others, though this is the first time I have used it outside of the Gnome environment.Sometimes I have had to fiddle a bit to get it working.
In LXLE I had an initial problem partly solved by Mr. Wisir who kindly, and promptly, responded to my email request. The first problem was with adding Launchers to the panel. I was used to just dragging ICons to the panel . I was advised to right-click , which I did but wasn't immediately aware this opened a dialog to configure/add each app to a menu.Most other distros I have used ( after right-clicking) open the menu with Icons already in it and then you simply select.
Nonetheless, after some trial and error I got there in the end. Replacing Compton with Compiz didn't work but I didn't really expect it to so the final solution was to remove both compositing-managers via Synaptic, and enable transparency in the system-settings of Cairo-dock itself.The simple solution was the easiest but I hadn't thought of doing it before as this is the first time in three years of using Cairo-dock that I have ever needed to.
I thought I would post this just in case other people were having a similar issue.
