WM Confusion


Ok, I'm trying to find some way of running docker apps in KDE, and I've found a program called 'docker' that I have compiled and installed (after having to upgrade many libs ) but, it dosnt seem to be working and crashes with the error ....

Code:
/usr/local/bin/docker: error while loading shared libraries: libglib-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I am pretty sure that libglib-2.0.so.0 exists and is living in /usr/local/lib I'm wondering whether I have to change wm's, but this is where I get a little confused I was sure you could change window managers from within Gnome (enlightenment etc.), but I thought Gnome WAS a window manager ? and also cannot find out how to do it from within KDE ? either that or could someone tell me how to dock LICQ in the kde system tray

cheers

ps. sorry if this post is really confusing

Alright, you know that libglib.so.0 exists in /usr/local/lib
First, make sure that this file is actually a file and not a link. Using ls -l should reveal this.
Another thing: if a program tries to load a certain libraries, it searches a few known directories, i.e. /lib and /usr/lib. May be, /usr/local/lib doesn't get searched and therefore, the library cannot be found. To fix this, you should edit your /etc/ld.so.conf. This file contains pathes to libraries, so put in /usr/local/lib, and then rerun ldconfig. After this, your program should work
Good luck

cheers the path was present in the conf but I ran ldconfig and it after that it seemed to work

one other quick question, is there any way of running a program (docker in this case ) without showing it in the taskbar ? (ie. so I can run Licq with JUST the dock app in docker and not shown in the taskbar)

Well, I cannot give you a straight answer. If this would be possibel, it should be a feature of kde, so check out the doc of kde and walk through all the config dialogs. May be you can find a clue over there. If you still cannot figure, you could post to one of the kde mailinglists/newsgroups, whatever they are using.
Good luck
