  12. Hi,
    I use openSUSE 11.2 and Cairo Dock 2.1.1-2. It’s installed correctly and works good. There is one problem. It runs twice! The second run of C-D always asks if user wants to run it with OpenGL or not. No matter what I click there are always two docks in the same place. How to solve it?

  13. Hi
    Can someone help me to configure the Cairo Dock on Suse linux enterprise Desktop 11..Tried using the repositories etc..lots of dependency resolution ..

    Appreciate if some one can help early

  14. I installed cairo-dock in my 64-bit opensuse linux. After installation, as I entered cairo-dock& the application compiled as reported that no plugins found and so it did quit. Please advise me. Thanks

  15. @Anubisg1 Seems like we are missing cairo-dock-plugins package on packman repository for openSUSE 12.1 🙂
