Docky Integration

Asked by silbermm on 2010-07-12

After installing gnomenu 2.9 I don't have the option to install the gnomeu helper in docky. Is there a way to install the helper manually?

What method did you use to install GnoMenu. If you used a deb or RPM trying doing a manual install and download the tar ball file from here.

To Install GnoMenu unpack the tar ball and the cd into "gnomenu" directory. Use the command "sudo make install" if using Ubuntu otherwise su as root and just run "make install"

Then try the following:

Docky helper / Applet install

1. Just install GnoMenu normally, with sudo make install
2. Activate the GnoMenu helper in Docky menu
3. Restart Docky

I installed it on Ubuntu using the apt repository, I will try to build from source and reply with the result

That did not work. After installing from source I still have no option for gnomenu in the helpers menu of docky.

The files for docky are located here: gnomenu/src/share/dockmanager/scripts/GnoMenu under the extracted GnoMenu directory of the downloaded tar ball. Make sure the files are copied to /usr/share/dockmanager/scripts/GnoMenu and have execute permission for all users. If that doesn't work there is probably an dependency issue that I am unaware of.

The helper show up, and after restarting docky the icon is right here...
... but when I click it, it just bump and nothing happen, the menu does not appear...

I'm running :
Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick 32 bits
GnoMenu installed from bzr today
Docky 2.1.0

I've already checked dependencies given at Question #120631 and everything was already installed...

Can you help with this problem?
