    • The version of Cairo-Dock ('cairo-dock -v' in a terminal).
3.4.99alpha1
    • Your GNU/Linux distribution (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.).
Mint 17.3
    • Or you using OpenGL or not.
No OpenGL
    • Your Window manager (Compiz, Metacity, Kwin, Openbox, etc.).
Xfwm4+compton
    • Your Desktop Environment (Gnome, KDE, XFCE, etc.).

XFCE

I just bought a ThinkServer T140 and installed Mint 17.3. I installed Cairo-Dock and though it works, a large are of the screen is black. I tried using my old .config/cairo-dock and it too lead to the black background but the applets worked. Somewhere I read a suggestion to install compton; did that but still black. My machine being a server did not come with a graphics board but has some motherboard graphics so I assume that OpenGL is not supported. I tried running both with and without OpenGL and got the same result.

Would a graphics card with proprietary driver supporting OpenGL help my situation?

CD is really part of the way I approach my machine and I would really like to have it; it's in my fingers.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in Advance,

Don
