    Question Cairo Dock themes

    Cairo dock is unable to resolve host address "themes.cairo-dock.org"
    resulting in not being able to change themes and images like dustbin not loading.

    i have no proxy's and can connect to the host using firefox any idea's?

    Re: Cairo Dock themes

    can you try to do
    wget http://themes.cairo-dock.org/liste.txt
    in a terminal ?
    this is roughly the command used by the dock.

    also, what if you start the dock manually ? maybe the connection is not established immediately on startup. In this case, you can start the dock with a delay, with a command like
    sleep 10 && cairo-dock -o
    or
    sleep 10 && cairo-dock -c

    that command line worked but still no themes. also i've noticed that it says that it cannot connect to the internet when trying to load other icon packages and the weather.

    I just did a fresh install of karmic 9.10.

    Re: Cairo Dock themes

    Terminal connects and gets file just fine, but still nothing on the dock. i was able to solve a few issues by manuly downloading and adding the the theme to /home/username/.config/cairo-dock/themes but that dosn't fix the script issues like dustbin and weather apps that it pulls from the site.

    I also just did a fresh install of karmic

    edit.

    i ran cair-dock -l debug instead of cairo-dock -l debug > debug.txt and found this is the following when opening theme manager.
    Code:
    (cairo-dock-themes-manager.c:cairo_dock_list_net_themes:362)

    ok, there is a bug in the latest wget (don't know if it's a package problem or a real bug inside wget).
    anyway, Cairo-Dock now uses curl to download the themes, it's currently available on bzr and soon on our PPA and our repository.

    Hello,
    It's fixed on our repository but in fact the timeout is just longer. But try to force the use of IPv4 in order to start your download faster.
