I didn't notice these messages, doesn't mean they weren't there.
*EDIT* SlackBuilds has "libdbusmenu" do you think this might help? Should it possibly be listed as a dep?

I have no idea about modifying the script to fix this. I am pretty clueless with scripts, something I need to learn.

Thank you for your efforts in getting this figured out...

Try and build the plugins from source. You already have the plugins tarball. Extract it to a directory and follow the instructions here:
http://www.glx-dock.org/ww_page.php?...piling&lang=en

Remember to uninstall the plugins package before running the make install command.

The Slackbuilds are for cairo-dock 2.3.0~2.1 and plugins 2.3.0~2
I'm going to try updating to the latest stable cairo-dock 2.4.0~2 and plugins 2.4.0~2.1
I'll see how that goes....

I guess the slackbuild script should be modified to include this.
I built my own package for cairo-dock-2.4.0~2.1 a while ago. If I remember correctly I was having similar problems with some applets not working as expected. That was solved by installing gvfs-1.6.7 from SBo. Something about gio-2.0 modules in the compilation messages gave me some clues about it. Currently I have it up and running and the trash applet works as expected, can drag files to it and middle click to remove them.

You might want to install gvfs from SBo first and then try compiling cairo-dock and cairo-dock-plugins again. Maybe worth a try.

Add a custom launcher in cairo-dock, right click on it and choose Modify this launcher. In the field Command to run on click, type xfdesktop --menu. That will bring up the same menu you get when you right click on the desktop, with the applications menu and other options.

I will give these suggestions a try when I get home tonight...

Installing gvfs from slackbuilds solved the problem.

It worked until the system was re-started then it was back to the N/A across the icon and no functionality.
I went to glx-dock.org and I think I got the solution.

Is better if you force to load the xfce integration plug-in
Code:
cairo-dock -e xfce
This seems to have fixed the issue.

The problem is back. I've tried a few things, and they work temporarily.
It was suggested that gvfs is starting after the dock.
If this is true that would explain it.
How would you make sure gvfs starts first?
