i have installed cairo-dock on my system, but there is no dock when i launch it. Only the workspace switcher appears. I am using Arch Linux with Gnome 3.22.1 (gnome-shell). I am using X not Wayland.

It works fine in a KDE session.

Here is the output when I start from a terminal:
warning : (/build/cairo-dock/src/cairo-dock-core-3.4.1/src/implementations/cairo-dock-egl.c:gldi_register_egl_backend:232)
Cairo-Dock was not built with EGL support

couldn't find an appropriate visual, trying to get one without Stencil buffer
(it may cause some little deterioration in the rendering) ...

By the way, I tried both opengl and cairo options for drawing with no difference.

I also tried adjusting preferences, make always on top, reserve space etc. A space is reserved but it just shows the desktop behind.
