Not currently. I'm not sure it ever will be possible.

This might be supported at some point, I have thought about it some. It relies on us implementing another feature first though so it will be a long ways out.

There's an "Application Browser" that comes with the Suse-style main menu. Maybe that might help?

In Ubuntu, the package is "gnome-main-menu." To add it to Docky, first add the menu to the gnome panel, open it, click on the "More Applications" and then pin the Application Browser to the dock. Only problem I see is that it doesn't seem to specify an icon, or at least not one that my themes have. If you know how to find and edit .Desktop files you can probably even choose an icon.

Thanks for the reply! I think this is a feature that should be implemented at some point. At the same time some sort of system notification should be added at the same time, then the whole gnome panel could be replaced by this nice docky :-).
Cheers for the good work!
