I've always used Cairo dock from Karmic distro onwards; after Unity arrived, I didn't need to use it anymore. That soon changed when Unity seemed to take too much system resource on my Intel Atom netbook, and I found myself stuck with Xubuntu. After noticing the article at WebUpd8, I decided to give Cairo another try, and noticed that it now supported an alternative session for its own dock and Unity API.
But the problem is, I don't intend to install Gnome / Unity on my netbook, and Cairo session doesn't load without it. I could use Cairo directly on XFCE, but I don't intend to lose my panels either (I prefer these modified panels as "safe mode").
Is it possible to have a separate Cairo session depending on XFCE instead? If so, how do I do that?
