[Locked] 3d plane not appears correctly

Hi!
I've got a problem with the last Cairo-Dock version: it seems that the 3d view (osx like... i dont'know what's the correct name in english, sorry!) not appears correctly.

The icons are not over the mirror plane, and they are not correctly activated by the mouse over.

I dont'know if this is a know bug, but I found nothing on the web about this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Look at the screen bottom.

I'm running Cairo as session with effects on ubuntu 12.04 lts.

Running Cairo with

cairo-dock -d ~/test


shows the same problems.

It seems that your video card or its drivers don't support well the OpenGL backend.
Do you've this bug if you launch the dock with this command?
cairo-dock -c
To not use the OpenGL backend by default, you can launch this command:
cairo-dock -A

Well... a little order

1) I've got an hybrid video card (intel/geforce) and I use bumblebee (optirun) to launch programs using intel or nvidia video card
2) with cairo-dock -c is ok
3) I'm using at login cairo-dock session with effects. How can I "run" cairo-dock -A at startup of this session in manner that I can select no opengl?
3/bis) Running cairo-dock with opengl with optirun (bumblebee) will solve the problem? (now I do a little test...)

2) with cairo-dock -c is ok
It confirms that it's a bug with your Intel drivers. It's maybe related to this bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55036#c0 (if yes, feel free to confirm it )

3) I'm using at login cairo-dock session with effects. How can I "run" cairo-dock -A at startup of this session in manner that I can select no opengl?
Simply launch the dock (version 3.1) with this command (cairo-dock -A), select 'Remember this choice' and then select 'No'.

3/bis) Running cairo-dock with opengl with optirun (bumblebee) will solve the problem? (now I do a little test...)
Yes but I think it's not a solution because Cairo-Dock doesn't need a lot of GPU resources and you can temporally use it without the OpenGL backend (if you enable the Nvidia card, your computer will consume more power...)

Yes, the bug is correct

I tried to launch cairo-dock -A and remember to use no opengl but how to fix it for the next restart? I terminate my session but nothing change the next time....

Well, yes... bumblebee is not a solution... maybe it's better to launch it without opengl... if i'll find a manner to do what you say with cairo-dock -A also for other sessions

Guest, Thursday 25 October 2012 à 22:28

STOOOOOOOOOOP!

Resolved with cairo-dock -A and selecting no opengl support.

I've launched this command from terminal, then close my session without closing terminal and okay, in the next session all feel okay!!!

Thank you soooo much!!!!!!

I'm looking now how developing some more widget for cairo !!!!

Ciao!

I'm running ver 3.1 with a CI7-3770 and have the same problem. Running without opengl works fine and isn't a real load on the processor.
Thanks
