I am want to install Cairo-dock in this ubuntu but when I start to install:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/cairo-dock_1.6.3.1_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/share/cairo-dock/default-indicator.png', which is also in package cairo-dock-data

A "png" file is an image. I would not be too concerned and allow the over write.

package conflict.
remove the packages from Ubuntu, re-install from the official repository.

You have installed Cairo-Dock previously and you are now attempting to install it again over top of the already installed version.

You need to remove & purge the old version first, then proceed to install the newer version.

Open up the synaptic package manager under System>Administration and completly remove (including configuration files)your currently installed version.

Once the old version is cleaned out, the new version should install without any problem.

Install will not complete until he purges the old version. Ignoring the png file won't help. In my experience, it must be removed to continue.
