movie on Kiba Dock here
Thanks to StevieB and AndersJ we are proud to present Kiba dock for Suse ;-) It is a fun Widget for Gnome. Here is what you should do:
new feb 2007: a new post exist on this blog about kiba on openSUSE - check
1) First you need to install 3 RPM's which can be found here::
If you have SLED 10 you can download them and install them trough the ZEN-Installer one at a time.
2) After the installation you can use some of the current quick launchers you already have. These are stored in "*.desktop" files located in: ~/.gnome2/panel2.d/default/launchers
For more info on .desktop entry files see -> http://www.gnome.org/learn/admin-guide/latest/menustructure-desktopentry.html
The THREE important bits in the file are Exec, Name and icon (ensure they exist and have no spaces in the paths etc etc ... also NAME not NAME_US)
If you have special apps like CrossOverOffice etc I will post a special LAUNCH file for them
3) Once you have your *.desktop files we need to add them to the gconf registry with 2 commands for each desktop file:
a) /opt/gnome/bin/gconftool-2 --set /apps/kiba/launchers/
/opt/gnome/bin/gconftool-2 --set /apps/kiba/launchers/0/file --type string /home/sbroadwell/firefox.desktop
b) The second command is:
/opt/gnome/bin/gconftool-2 --apply-schema /schemas/apps/kiba/launchers/file /apps/kiba/launchers/
Just replace the
4) Launch "dock &" and play about :0) (or store them in your session manager @ startup
The Priest with again; special thanks to StevieB & AndersJ
When you launch dock it initially copies your desktop file to ~/.kiba-dock so be aware this is where the files now are.
Also you can now launch gconf-editor and "apps > kiba > launchers" there is a key for each launcher which should contain exec, file, icon, name and correspond to the .desktop file in ~/.kiba-dock
If you find that you have segmentation faults when launching dock then the chances are there is an issue with the syntax in the .desktop file and / or the gconf key ...... basically remove spaces and quotes and make it simple ... I found pointing the execs to scripts worked best for me.
