Hi guys, How are you?

I think title is self explanatory: if I choose Rainbow view for main dock or for subdocks, icons are shown without labels. I found an old unanswered thread on ubuntu forum with the same problem. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1656871

I use cairo-dock 3.2.1 in OpenGL, on an Arch Linux system, with openbox and cairo-compmgr. Graphics powered by Ati open source driver.

Hi

Fine and you?

I think title is self explanatory: if I choose Rainbow view for main dock or for subdocks, icons are shown without labels. I found an old unanswered thread on ubuntu forum with the same problem.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to correctly display labels with this view but you should have labels (but they are almost fully transparency). Can you check with the subdock of Shortcuts applet? (it's working for me but I'm using the development version)

I'm fine too, thanks.
Shortcuts is exactly the subdock that I would to visualize in rainbow view. But this is the result:

Labels are drawn but they are almost transparent.

On your screenshot, we can see one label on the middle but it's maybe the label of the main icon. Maybe do you use a low "label's visibility threshold"? (Advanced mode of the config panel / Labels module)

Yes, the label you see is part of the generic shortcut Icon on the main dock (curve view), Scorciatoie is the italian translation of the word Shortcuts. If I set the plugin to display volumes, it shows the used space, but for bookmarks (what I need) it doesn't show the name label.
Threshold is set to 50 (maximum).

Is it better with the default value (10) or lower?

You're right! Setting a lower value increase opacity, as the popup tooltip say
Now, at 0, labels are visible, but about 50% transparent. Anyway, better than before.
Could you answer another question?
Why radius and icons are cut both orizontally both vertically? You can clearly see this strange behaviour in my previously uploaded screenshot.

Yes, it seems the window created for this subdock is a bit too small

I'm going to add a task for that
