cairo-dock - mac os dock like program

To install:

From the repository (stable)

(only for Hardy Heron 32/64bits and Gutsy Gibbon 32 bits)

Cairo-Dock has its own repository. So, to install it, you just have to edit your sources (sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list) and add the repository:

deb hardy cairo-dock or deb gutsy cairo-dock (if you are under gutsy)

The sign key GPG for identification of the repository is: (enter in shell and you should get OK out of it.)

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

So, type it in a shell. Then, to install cairo-dock, type in a shell:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins

There is no repository available for older distributions such as Feisty. So, if you want Cairo-Dock under Feisty or older, you must compile it, or download the package (see below).

After you install you should see something like this: CLICKY

With the deb package (stable)

If you can't install cairo-dock from the repository, you can download the package from Berlios. But you first need to install the following package:

sudo apt-get install libcairo2 librsvg2-2 libglitz1 libglitz-glx1

Then, download the package:

in a shell, go to the directory where you have dowloaded the .deb (use the command “cd the_directory” example: cd /home/user_dir/Desktop/) and type

sudo dpkg -i xxx.deb

xxx is the name of the package you have downloaded

and, type

sudo apt-get -f install

So, it's finish, you can type “cairo-dock” in a shell to launch it and configure it

== By compiling it (stable)==

You must first install the following packages:

sudo apt-get install build-essential libcairo2-dev libgtk2.0-dev librsvg2-dev libglitz1-dev libcairo2 librsvg2-2 libglitz1 libglitz-glx1 libglitz-glx1-dev m4 autotools-dev pkg-config libtool(the whole thing in one line.)

Then, download the tar.bz2 package here:, and your your shell to the download directory with “cd” and type: (example cd /home/user_dir/Desktop)

autoreconf -isvf

./configure –prefix=/usr


sudo make install

Then, install the SimDock .deb with the following:

2. To start simdock you most indicate where is your wallpaper image like this:
