    Cairo-Dock won't appear

    Hi. I have tried the terminal command to purge cairo dock, restarting, then going to terminal and entering the install command. I have also tried to go to other panels with the Mate Tweak utility and typing from the menu cairo-dock, but the dock still does not appear. I have also tried going to Synaptic.

    Am I confused? Or do you have this thread marked as "Solved"? I don't see your solution...

    Re: Cairo-Dock won't appear

    Hi. I solved the Cairo dock myself after reading about the options to launch the program with. In the terminal, I entered "cairo-dock -f" to start safe mode, and then the dock appeared. After the dock was visible, I went to "Themes" and chose another theme that I had saved. After these steps, I no longer had a problem with Cairo dock not appearing--whatever theme I happened to click on earlier (that was mine) had an error. Yeah, there are a lot of options to start the program with. https://www.huge-man-linux.net/man1/cairo-dock.html Sorry for the confusion.

    Now I am not confused. That was actually a very helpful solution for other's to find to help them with their similar problems. Thank you for sharing that.
