    Cool RocketDock in WINE?

    Hi. I see there are some dock programs for Linux, but they're very different from what I'm used to. So I tried installing RocketDock, which I liked in Windows. It installed ok, but when I ran it I got a little white box in the top left corner of the screen. I can click it, and set RocketDock options, but that's all. I guess it's RocketDock, but far offscreen. I tried setting the screen position and center offset in its options, to no avail. Is there some setting(s) I need to set in the WINE options for it to work? Thanks.

    Hm, is there any way to get RocketDock working in Ubuntu with Compiz?

    Ummm... I'm thinking this is only possible if you have the source code and reprogram it to understand gnome. It is made to be a windows taskbar replacement... doing things the way the windows taskbar does. I don't think WINE is able to make it understand how to do things the gnome way.

    +1 on the Avant-Window-Navigator.... I like it better than RocketDock... it only lacks parabolic zoom... that's all. Other than that... it does the same as RocketDock and more.
