xfce4-dockbarx-plugin + Mouse DBX Theme

This is not a port of DockbarX to Xfce; this plugin embeds the already-made DockbarX into xfce4-panel using a python program to play go-between.

To install, please see the INSTALL file. On systems that use Debian, RPM, or Slackware packages, it can automatically create and install a package for the package manager if you have checkinstall installed; make sure to configure with --prefix=/usr if you go this route.

You will need to have Vala and the development files for xfce4-panel installed to build this. (On Ubuntu 12.10, the package names are valac and xfce4-panel-dev.) You also need to have DockbarX installed as well, obviously.

This also includes a DockbarX theme called Mouse. It was created for xfce4-panel, but should look good on any other panel. You can download Mouse separately if you're just here for the theme.


- Fixed bug where DBX disappears after changing theme.
- Fixed bug where DBX restricts itself to an arbitrary size by exposing the max_size property and setting it absurdly high by default. (Setting it to 0 in the config dialog makes it use the absurdly high value.)
- Add MouseNeo themes, with -4 and -6 variants. This version has the highlight background visible on every open group button, to allow you to see open windows easier on noisy wallpapers. The highlight color and opacity can be configured. However there is no launch highlight or hover highlight anymore.

- Update plugin to work with newest DBX.
- Get rid of a lot of super-hacky crap.

- Adds a one-second delay to the start of the python plug. This fixes some issues with it looking weird when it starts. I'm guessing it's because it allows config files to settle.
- Move the plug program out of $PREFIX/bin because there's no point letting users start it outside of the plugin. On the downside... the path to that program is hardcoded, and will only go into /usr/share/xfce4/panel/plugins. I could never figure out how to get Vala defines to work in waf.
- Now on github! Yay!

- True version that doesn't do everything in the most terrible way possible. "If you can't determine it gracefully, ask the user." That is a good programming rule.
- The DBX plug reads all configuration info from the RC file as opposed to having it communicated over the command line.
- Presents the configuration dialog at first run to allow the user to configure background styling.
- Automatically detects orientation and screen position, and communicates them to the DBX plug.
- Still just rudely kills off the plug whenever a configuration change occurs, but it works so I'm not gonna fix it.

- Initial version with all significant functionality implemented.
- This is an obsolete version that floated around the internet for some time.

  didn't show up after reboot

On my SolydX 64, it successfully compiled and run perfectly but after reboot it didn't show up. If i remove it from xfce panel and add again then it appears as expected.
It is driving me nuts, as dockbarx is the only applet (that i know) can close programs by middle-clicking their button.
thanks, and sorry for my english.

It sounds like a problem I've had before where it just straight up forgets all of its pinned launchers (presumably because of some gconf awkwardness). Do any applications appear at all in the plugin, like, say if you just open up a terminal?

No, nothing appeared in the panel. If i remove and re-add the plugin then the icons appear again.
