How to test docky?

Asked by The Fiddler on 2009-11-27

Ok, I've downloaded the code, compiled it and I'm now trying to run it in MonoDevelop. Unfortunately, this yields the following error, which I assume is a configuration issue ("/Docky/ItemProvider" doesn't really look like a valid path...)

Unhandled Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: Extension node not found in path: /Docky/ItemProvider

What can I do to fix this?

I assume you ran './autogen.sh' once before opening/compiling in MonoDevelop? If not, that is your problem.

The Fiddler (stapostol) said : #2

Yes, but the issue persists.

I've filed a bug report here (and the solution) here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/docky/+bug/492804

Can you help with this problem?
