My cairo-dock stopped working after ubuntu updates were applied.

I get the following error when trying to fetch new updates for cairo dock.

Fetched 4104B in 7s (585B/s)
W: GPG error: http://repository.cairo-dock.org jaunty Release: The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2
W: Failed to fetch http://repository.cairo-dock.org/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/cairo-dock/binary-i386/Packages.bz2 Sub-process bzip2 returned an error code (2)

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?


However before you post a message on the forum and to speed up things, don't forget to include as much informations as you can (if it's posible ):
    • My version of Cairo-Dock 2.14
    • Im running ubuntu - jaunty
    • OpenGL version
    • My Window manager is Compiz
    • My desktop is Gnome
    • I got the problem after a recent update of ubuntu
    • After I launch from terminal, I get the following:

I get the following error when trying to fetch new updates for cairo dock.
We had some problem with our registrar, so we had to change domain name :
The domain name cairo-dock.org is out ! : Welcome on glx-dock.org !
(about the repository, simply replace 'cairo-dock.org' by 'glx-dock.org')
So simply edit your sources.list or :
sudo sed -i 's/cairo-dock.org/glx-dock.org/g' /etc/apt/sources.list


But about your bug, I'm uploading a new version for this 'Weekly ppa'. Should not be available before 3 or 4 hours

You ve got the same error
cairo-dock: symbol lookup error: cairo-dock: undefined symbol: gdk_x11_window_get_drawable_impl

It would be interesting to know which updates you ve done in ubuntu?

maybe you should do a backup of your current-theme in ./config/cairo-dock by just renaming differently like current-theme-backup and try a restart

It seems that you use our 'weekly ppa' (should be updated soon).
If you want to use the latest stable release, open 'Software properties' : Press Alt+F2 and use this command
gksu software-properties-gtk
and in 'third-party' tab (I think) you can disable our Cairo-Dock PPA weekly...
After that, reinstall CD and its plug-ins
