cairo-dock trash question
 
I'm running Slackware 13.37 64bit using Xfce. I installed cairo-dock, and for the most part I have it setup as I wish. There are a couple things I can't figure out.

First is the trash bin. I would like to put it on the dock so I can remove it from the desktop. I enabled it in cairo-dock configuration and it shows up on the dock, but it does nothing. How does one configure this applet?

Second, if possible, I would like to have the xfce popup menu on the dock so I can get rid of the xfce panel. Is this possible?

To configure the dustbin, right-click on it and select 'Configure this applet'. This takes you to the configure screen.

What the issue is the "Dust Bin" doesn't work. I drag a file to it and nothing happens, the file stays where it was and the "Dust Bin" stays empty.
I have gone through the right-click>>Configure this applet and I don't see where this could be corrected. Is there a config file that can be edited to make it work?

I just checked and it works perfectly for me. I'm using a custom built version 2.4.0-2 on Debian Squeeze. I'm not 100% sure, but it might have to do with integration with XFCE4. Do you have an XFCE integration option in the System configuration screen? If not, you may need to install the XFCE integration plugin. This may also help with integrating XFCE's menu into the dock.

The config files are in ~/.config/cairo-dock/extras/dustbin, but the files there are mainly for the icons.

A quick search for cairo-dock XFCE integration for slackware returned this link:
http://pkgs.org/slackware-13.1/slack...6-1sl.txz.html

An XFCE integration plugin is included in the package.

Yes, I have the option and it is checked.

Do you have the DBus plugin installed and selected?

Yes, I have that installed and checked as well.

Well now I'm all out of ideas except to say you might want to check the forums on glx-dock.org. Probably they may have the answer.

I'll try this on one of my XFCE4 install later today and see what happens.

ceh383 04-08-2012 11:49 AM

Thanks for the help, I'll give glx-dock.org a try...

I found the config file for the "DustBin"
There is a place to add a trash directory. What directory does Slackware use for the trash?

*EDIT* Found it, but it didn't help.

Just installed Cairo-Dock 2.4 on Debian Wheezy with XFCE4. At first, the dustbin showed N/A and did not show any trash.
After installing the XFCE integration plugin, it worked perfectly.

Could be you're missing some dependency. Because you must manually satisfy all dependencies in Slackware, I would suggest to re-check your cairo-dock installation and ensure you did not miss any of the dependency packages.

ceh383 04-08-2012 01:54 PM

I installed from SlackBuilds, the only dep shown is for gtkglext which I installed.
I also installed the cairo-dock plugins from SlackBuilds which showed no deps, other than cairo-dock.

Not sure what I could be missing....

Just about finish installing this on my Slackware 13.37 XFCE install. Will check and post back.

towheedm 04-08-2012 02:25 PM

Launched the dock and I am getting the same N/A text on the dustbin although XFCE integration is enabled. This means the dustbin icon will not function. Are you getting the same N/A text on the dustbin icon?

The following messages were shown during the build of cairo-dock-plugins:
Code:

-- checking for module 'dbusmenu-glib'
--    package 'dbusmenu-glib not found
-- checking for module 'dbusmenu-gtk'
--    package 'dbusmenu-gtk' not found

But I think the real problem is this:
Code:

-- GVFS found: source file applet-thunar-vfs.c NOT included for compilation
I guess the slackbuild script should be modified to include this.
