Hi,

There is up to date version of cairo-dock for openSUSE available at http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/etamPL/ https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/home:etamPL with plugins and extras. Feel free to check it out and find openSUSE specific bugs. Any reports, patches, or other contributions are welcome and appreciated.

Soon it will be pushed towards openSUSE:Factory (probably via X11:Utilities).

Hi,

Greate! I just branched it on my build service home folder to allow sending it to the company intranet. Will install it next monday for testing.

Thanks!

Hello,

Thank you for maintaining these packages!

Here is just a few ideas after having quickly read your .spec files:
  • I'm not sure that it's a good idea to create a package for each plugin. This behaviour has also been chosen by Debian maintainers but we think that it's not a good idea:
    • There are a lot of plugins: it's not so easy to maintain all this list (there are a few problems with Debian packages and we saw that it's hard to maintain, e.g. with data files that can be shared between plugins or missing in some packages)
    • When installing the dock, users want to test plugins, they also want to have a nice default theme (if many plugins are missing, it will be strange).
    • Some plugins are important (e.g. DBus), some of them are used by many people. If a plugin is not enabled in the config panel, it will not be launched by the dock.
    • It's possible that plugins will be renamed/remove/added in the future, some data are shared between plugins or installed not only in this dir: %{_datadir}/cairo-dock/plug-ins/DIR (e.g. python's scripts for some applets)
    • For Ubuntu, there are 7 packages for the plugins:
      • cairo-dock-plug-ins => with all libcd-*.so files (but it can be interesting to split packages that have extras/exotic dependences, e.g. mail, weblets, etc. but we try to reduce to number of packages). When installing this package (which is automatically installed when installing 'cairo-dock' meta-package), it will also install -data, -integration and -dbus-interface-python.
      • cairo-dock-plug-ins-data => data + scripts
      • cairo-dock-plug-ins-integration => all libcd_*-integration.so files: these plugins don't need any dependences, they are automatically enabled if some programs are running
      • cairo-dock-plug-ins-dbus-interface-python => this package should be installed by default (needed for most third-party applets)
      • cairo-dock-plug-ins-dbus-interface-mono => these packages need many other dependences and it's maybe better to not install them by default
      • cairo-dock-plug-ins-dbus-interface-ruby
      • cairo-dock-plug-ins-dbus-interface-vala
    • (please read the cairo-dock-core/INSTALL file for more details about that )
  • (and the Help plugin should always be installed when installing the dock, it's maybe better to not split it into a new package)
  • The description of the Help plugin is Cairo Dock drop_indicator Plugin
  • Is it possible to remove these words in the description: "doclet like Mac" (I'm not sure that Apple layers will like that )
  • For the description, you can find another one there: debian/control

Cairo-Dock is a pretty, light and convenient interface to your desktop,
able to replace advantageously your system panel!
It features multi-docks, taskbar, launchers and a lot of useful applets.
Applets can be detached from the dock to act as desktop widgets.
Numerous ready-to-use themes are downloadable in 1 click, and can be easily
customized at your convenience.
It can use hardware acceleration to be very fast and low on CPU.
