Show Desktop Applet only works one time

My problem is with the Show Desktop applet. I am on Ubuntu 14.04 with Compiz and using Cairo-Dock 3.3.99.beta1 (I was using the latest non-beta release before and had the same issue). I am using Open GL.

The problem is that the Show Desktop applet works only once. That is, you click it and it shows the desktop only once. After that, the icon for Show Desktop changes from a purple desktop screen with a few documents on it to a blue empty screen. When you click it, nothing happens. I assumed that this was a setting, but I can't figure out how to change/fix it.

I saw one post where a similar, but different, issue was blamed on Compiz. But Show Desktop works fine in Ubuntu using Compiz, including using the switcher.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know? I love Cairo dock, but use the desktop and need the applet to work.

Hello

I saw one post where a similar, but different, issue was blamed on Compiz.
Is it this bug? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cairo-dock-plug-ins/+bug/1311189
Compiz should inform the X server that it is no longer displaying only the desktop without any window on top of it. Due to this bug, our Show Desktop applet is no longer notified when the window manager (here it's Compiz) stops showing only the desktop.

But Show Desktop works fine in Ubuntu using Compiz, including using the switcher.
Is it the Show Desktop plugin in Unity's dock? If yes, Unity is a plugin of Compiz and I think it directly uses informations from Compiz without contacting the X server.

Yes, that appears to be the bug. Damn! Any workaround?

I can use the switcher (ALT-TAB), but I prefer the button. The switcher mus use Compiz not the X server. Any way to make use of that info?

You can maybe use a short key to enable the 'show desktop' feature of Compiz. I think you'll need to install Unity-Tweak-Tool or the CCSM to easily enable/change settings of Compiz

Would it work if I created a small application that shows desktop, then put that in Cairo-Dock?

Guest, Tuesday 17 June 2014 à 02:07 | Quote

Yes, that works. I followed the instructions here. Also pasted below.

Install xdotool
Create a file (not using sudo): gedit ~/.local/share/applications/show-desktop.desktop
Paste the following into that file:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Show Desktop
Exec=xdotool key --delay 150 ctrl+alt+d
Icon=desktop
Terminal=false
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true

Make the file executable:
Right click -> Properties -> Permissions -> Tick ‘Allow executing as a programme’

Drag that new icon in the folder above to your Cairo-Dock

This worked for me. It even made a nice show desktop icon.

Or I think you can just do a right click on the dock / Cairo-Dock / Add / Custom Launcher. Then set <Ctrl><Alt>d as the command
(and just use desktop for the image)

Note: In ubuntu 13.10 or later it's <Ctrl><Super>d.
