I installed cairo-dock 3.4.0 in ubuntu 14.04, but is not loading when you restart.
How can I fix?

Hi!
Do you get any messages when you run cairo-dock from a terminal? Open a terminal, type "cairo-dock" (without the quotes) and see if you get any error messages.

You mean the dock don't start with your session ?

(have you tried the menu entry that provide this feature ? (use only once))

Found my problem. In /usr/share/xsessions, I had three files:

ubuntu.desktop - working

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Ubuntu
Comment=This session logs you into Ubuntu
Exec=gnome-session --session=ubuntu
TryExec=unity
Icon=
Type=Application
DesktopNames=Unity
X-LightDM-DesktopName=Unity
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-session-3.0

gnome-desktop - not working

[Desktop Entry]
Name=GNOME
Comment=This session logs you into GNOME
Exec=gnome-session --session=gnome
TryExec=gnome-shell
Icon=
Type=Application
DesktopNames=GNOME
X-LightDM-DesktopName=GNOME
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-session-3.0

cairo-dock.desktop - not working

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Cairo-Dock (GNOME)
Comment=This session logs you into GNOME with Cairo-Dock
Exec=gnome-session --session=cairo-dock
TryExec=gnome-session
Icon=
Type=Application
DesktopNames=Unity

Since the Exec= line was using the same binary in all cases but TryExec was not, I created

cairo-gnome-unity.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Cairo Unity
Comment=This session logs you into Unity with Cairo Dock
Exec=gnome-session --session=cairo-dock
TryExec=unity
Icon=
Type=Application
DesktopNames=Unity
X-LightDM-DesktopName=Unity
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-session-3.0

and the problem is solved.

Hope this is helpful to someone.

[Desktop Entry]
Name=GNOME SHELL Caro
Comment=This session logs you into GNOME with Cairo Dock
Exec=gnome-session --session=cairo-dock
TryExec=unity
Icon=
Type=Application

X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-session-3.0

Very strange!
