I use Docky. I want Cardapio to open when I click Docky's anchor icon. Can I do that?

Please note that using this integration requires Docky in version higher than the one available in Maverick's repos.You can install latest Docky from their Development PPA available at https://launchpad.net/~docky-core/+archive/ppa

1) First, install Cardapio https://answers.launchpad.net/cardapio/+faq/1188
(at least v0.9.157)

2) Then install cardapio-docky package:
sudo apt-get install cardapio-docky

3) Now restart Docky and go to it's Settings / Helpers tab. Find Cardapio there and activate it.

From now on, clicking the anchor icon should show / hide Cardapio's window near the dock. Give it a try: click Docky's anchor icon and see what happens!


Other Tips

To avoid overlapping of Docky's anchor icon's tooltip with Cardapio, you might want to run this from terminal:
gconftool -t string -s /apps/docky-2/Docky/Items/DockyItem/HoverText ''

The tooltip won't be there anymore.
