    Ubuntu 12.04 and Cairo-dock

    On a login screen there is:
    * Cairo-Dock (GNOME+Effect)
    * Cairo-Dock (GNOME+No Effect)
    * Cairo-Dock (with Unity Panel)
    Three option to choose.
    But no matter what I choose (exclude GNOME+No Effect)
    I still able to see the hidden Unity.
    Is it normal? How can I turn-off the Unity?
    Please guide me.

    IMO Unity on 12.04 does not work well with any dock including Cairo. If you auto hide Unity, it pops open all the time with any desktop object movement. For this reason, I switched to the gnome 3 shell. But, 12.10 behavior of Unity is better and should work with Cairo much better.

    It is a bug somehow, because my Cairo Dock installation works fine, with no Unity bar. If possible, try disabling Unity in compizconfig-settings-manager

    OK! Thank you very much for the guidance.
    Previously, when I first install Cairo-dock, in default mode, when I minimized the opened windows, it will be minimized to dock with the same apps icon. Now, since I modified the theme, the minimized windows will be minimized to Unity, instead on dock. How can make the minimized windows back to dock? What setting that I should set?
    Please do a favor by guiding me how to do that.
    Thank you.

    it sounds like you have logged into * Cairo-Dock (with Unity Panel). As was alrady mentioned I would not run cairo and unity I don't think they play nicely together. I would either run Cairo as the session manager (one of the first two selections) or as I do with gnome-shell where it works guite nicely

    Yup! I wish to do that.
    But after I do that, I unable to recognized which is IS.
    Example: Firefox, I opened 3-windows ... main, library, and download windows.
    In default settings, I will had 3 firefox icon on dock.
    But now, in dock I had 1 icon only not three (default).
    So I wish to set current theme to default settings.
    But I don't know how to do that.

    So, now, the question is not anymore how to disable Unity in the Cairo-Dock sessions, but how to get Cairo-Dock to behave like what you say is the default, right?
