    Re: cairo dock

    To download this dock, visit this site and download “cairo-dock_v1.5.6_i686.deb” and “cairo-dock-plug-ins_v1.5.6_i686.deb“.

    First install the dock, then the plugin package.

    Install them by double-clicking the file.

    You’ll need to enter your password. Then press the big button on the top right.

    After you installed both packages, go to “applications -> system tools -> cairo-dock”.

    You’ll be greeted by a little wizard that will help you select the theme, …

    You can easily change it’s option by right-click the dock, go to “cairo-dock” and press “configure’ or “manage themes”.

    To start the dock when you boot up your pc, go to “system -> preferences -> sessions”, press “add” and in the middle field enter “cairo-dock” (without the ” “). You can make up what you put in the other fields.

    Take a look at this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=535383.

    AWN is better supported and easier to install/configure. But it's not necessarily the better window navigator. You should decide which dock will suit you better.

    Re: cairo dock

    Run 'cairo-dock' on terminal, then run 'top' on another window to check if it's really eating up your ram. btw, what's your ram and your graphics card?
