Cairo Dock Theme issues


hello, i am running fedora 12 and having issues changing my theme on Cairo Dock... basically, everywhere i look says something about a theme manager, but when i look for this so called theme manager, i get nothing. On another note, i would also like cairo dock to be enabled to start upon start-up. if it makes a difference, i am using openGL and am on the latest release of Cairo Dock... i am semi-familiar with terminal so a list of commands would be great! (i used to run DOS computers when i was a kid...) thanks in advance for your help!

Right click on the Cairo dock bar which should bring up a menu. Go to Cairo-Dock>Manage themes or, alternatively, go to Cairo-Dock>Configure and click the Themes tab.

Have you installed the plugins ?

Try disabling the Gnome desktop effects from System > Preferences before you right click the Dock to find the theme manager.

You can add the dock to System > Preferences > Start up applications.
