I did a quick Google search for "kiba dock," having previously been unfamiliar with it, and my first result was this link to ubuntuforums.
There is a big chunk of red text at the top of the page, that says "May Currently Be Broken."
From what you're describing, it sounds like it may indeed be broken. I'd still recommend retrying the installation process by removing it completely and following the steps they describe (or, as closely as possible, depending on your distro).
Barring that, my only remaining suggestion is Google (or Yahoo or Live or Ask or whatever). Cheers
