I can use Cairo Dock just fine. All apps can be launched by dragging and dropping their respective .desktop file to Cairo Dock. However, of all those apps, only KDE system settings fail to execute. No error message whatsoever, simply nothing is executed.

From -l debug, I can see this message:
debug : (/build/cairo-dock/src/cairo-dock-3.3.2/src/gldit/cairo-dock-utils.c:cairo_dock_launch_command_full:269)
cairo_dock_launch_command_full (systemsettings -caption System Settings , (null))
message : (/build/cairo-dock/src/cairo-dock-3.3.2/src/gldit/cairo-dock-animations.c:gldi_icon_start_animation:243)
gldi_icon_start_animation (System Settings, 2)
systemsettings: Unexpected argument 'Settings'.
systemsettings: Use --help to get a list of available command line options.

Seems like it needs proper quoting. Cairo Dock version 3.3.2-2 from Manjaro official repository.

I guess it's the .desktop file to blame, so I change the command to remove %c and %i. Now it works as intended.

Sorry for the delay in response, everyone is quite busy right now. That information is good to know, thank you for the answer.

Hello and thank you for this bug report! (and sorry for the delay)

Is it maybe possible to give us the full command of your .desktop file?

not directly related, but I complained a lot about those magic launchers that give no informations. They strike once more.

Here's how I fixed that in my config (for now, this could be improved, but it at least provides what I needed, and I learned about that multiple file option in the meantime )

And you can also see that new launchers are translated, but subdocks aren't

Yes, it's a good idea. It's not so easy to change the "Default" value but adding an extra frame can help fixing this problem
