Cairo-dock is the best GUI for Linux but the GUI is very unusable, it seems the configurator of a nuclear power central.
is possible to do something similar to ccsm (the configurator of Compiz)?

Thanks

indeed Nochka
what makes you say it's so horrible ?
the parameters are clearly separated in distincts and logical groups, aren't they ?

"Horrible" is a bit too much, it's a bit clumsy. I agree that the compiz configurator should be taken as a model, it is also standard on many desktops.

there area a plethora of options but that does give you great ability to tweak and make the dock work exactly the way you want. you could use the basic/simple mode if you don't want the advanced options that i've come to enjoy.

well, if someone makes a nice mockup, I could stick to it to improve the config panel
Necropotame made one once ago, but it didn't integrate all the options, which is redhibitory.

faut avouer qu'avec le plugin greenscreen de compiz (qui permet de rendre certaine couleur transparente) sa ne rend pas très bien avec CD le but étant d'avoir le gui quasi complètement transparent

as you can see, with the greenscreen plugin (compiz), it's not beautiful the goal is to have the gui transparent.

ok ok , I'm fed up to read everywhere that the config of CD is a hell, so I'm planning to do something for the v2

peut etre faire plus de niveaux de hierarchie pour les options et aussi pour les niveaux de détail.
Une recherche pourrait etre pas mal aussi.
Passer la config en xml aussi aussi

C'est des idées en vrac mais je plussoie completement car il m'arrive encore de passer 10 min pour retrouver une option...

moui l'xml ça pourrait être une bonne idée, faut voir car ça complique pas mal tout de même.
+1 pour plus hiérarchiser
la recherche ça a l'air bien, par contre je vois pas trop comment faire.
je me tate à passer à Glade (car après il faudra se taper et maintenir à jour le remplissage de l'IHM et l'inverse)

And (yes at the beginning it was in english ) we should somehow keep a way to have an integration options management for the plugins... Glade wouldn't permit that, isn't it ?
