Issues that prevent docky from being supported in Fedora

Asked by vamega on 2010-08-16


I use fedora for quite a bit of my work and I was wondering what are the issues that prevent Docky from Functioning in Fedora. I know that it's something to do with incorrect implementations of the FreeDesktop standards, and something to do with sub-par mono support, but I'd like to get some specifics if someone would provide me with them.

Most of the reason why we don't support fedora is because none of the developers use fedora. The other reasons are those which you already stated. I don't use fedora, though I have made a fedora VM, and have gotten docky to compile on fedora in the past. I think you should just try to install docky on fedora and see what happens. If something doesn't work on fedora I'm not opposed to fixing it. It's just a little hard because I don't have fedora installed on any of my machines.

There are fedora instructions on our wiki: but I think it's been at least 6 months since I've tried to build docky on fedora. Let me know what troubles you have on fedora.
