Description:

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.




Changelog:

0.3.1:
- 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.

0.3:
- Update plugin to work with newest DBX.
- Get rid of a lot of super-hacky crap.

0.2.1:
- 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!

0.2:
- 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.

0.1:
- Initial version with all significant functionality implemented.
- This is an obsolete version that floated around the internet for some time.

I don't really know slackware, but the same steps should work for it as for any other distro.

Make sure DockbarX and the xfce4-panel development files are installed... oh! And Vala. I forgot about that. You need to have Vala to build this. And you need checkinstall in order to make a slackware package.

Then cd to where the source is and:

./waf configure --prefix=/usr
./waf build
sudo ./waf checkinstall

I can install the plugin, but dockbarx not, :(

Can you make something more native for xfce?, like http://git.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfce4-taskbar-plugin/, but that is too old, and have millions of bugs.

If that were feasible, it's what I would have done. For example, I have a port of namebar that I will be releasing soon. It's fully implemented in Vala, no sockets or plugs. But DockbarX has a huge slew of features and complexities. With my job and school, it would just take too much to fully port DBX to xfce.

Here is dockbarx's page:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=101604

M7S might be able to help you get DBX installed.

Hi TiZ, great work, thanks!

However I can't get it work...DockbarX is installed and working and I successfully installed the plugin with the waf script, I can select and add it to the panel too...but it shows nothing...

Any idea?

There are two ways to check the logs to see what's happening. You can either remove and re-add the plugin and tail -40 ~/.xsession-errors, or xfce-panel -q and then run xfce4-panel in a terminal. Look for something that seems like it might be relevant to this, then reply with it.

Thanks a lot, I was trying a way to debug the problem.

With both methods, I can see this message: ** (wrapper:3803): CRITICAL **: file src/dockbarx.c: line 484: uncaught error: Esecuzione del processo figlio "xfce4-dockbarx-plug" non riuscita (File o directory non esistente) (g-exec-error-quark, 8)


Sorry for the Italian, I don't know how to do to have and English output.

ps. My system is Debian wheezy 32 bit.

That looks like it's saying xfce4-dockbarx-plug doesn't exist. That shouldn't be true. Did you checkinstall this, or just install it? If you checkinstalled it, do dpkg -L xfce4-dockbarx-plugin.

http://pastebin.com/RSL93hRk

This is the list of files that should be in the package. More specifically, you should be looking for /usr/bin/xfce4-dockbarx-plug. If anything is missing at all, you'll have to do:

sudo ./waf uninstall
sudo ./waf checkinstall

First of all, thanks for your patience.

I tried both method, and the result was the same.
I just double check and that file exists

locate /usr/bin/xfce4-dockbarx-plug
/usr/bin/xfce4-dockbarx-plug

No problem, man.

It kind of sounds like something's wrong with your PATH variable. Please do echo $PATH in a terminal and make sure /usr/bin is there. If it's not there, we'll have to look into how to fix that. Although I wonder how a system could function without /usr/bin in the PATH.

If it is there, I'm actually going to ask you to edit the source for me. On line 127 of src/dockbarx.vala, change xfce4-dockbarx-plug to /usr/bin/xfce4-dockbarx-plug. Then rebuild, uninstall, install. We'll see if giving it the full path makes a difference.

Thanks again!

Well, $PATH is ok.

I rebuild with /usr/bin/xfce4-dockbarx-plug but no luck...same error.

This time I notice a warning during the build:

[2/5] subst: data/dockbarx.desktop.in -> build/data/dockbarx.desktop
/mnt/data/DATA/Scaricati/xfce4-dockbarx-plugin-0.2/src/dockbarx.vala:125.13-125.75: warning: unhandled error `GLib.SpawnError'

maybe it is related?

No, that warning is normal. It appears because I don't account for the possibility that the plug could fail to start. Which is something I clearly need to start doing. Try checking the permissions on /usr/bin/xfce4-dockbarx-plug. Make sure it's executable.

 how do you build from source?

"The plugin may not work if you're using the Xfce 4.10 PPA in Xubuntu 12.04 (in that case you may need to build the package from source)"

I'm running xfce 4.10 in Linux Mint 13 (12.04 based). How would I go about building from source? Is it in a readme or something? I'd like to add thi sinto my panel but it obviously just crashes when trying to add it b/c of me being on 4.10 in 12.04

Er, well ya I'm an idiot & just read the INSTALL file (duhhh, lol).

I am having a problem though: I keep getting configure erroring on this check:

libxfce4panel

Checking for 'libxfce4panel-1.0' >= 4.8
['/usr/bin/pkg-config', '--atleast-version=4.8', 'libxfce4panel-1.0']
not found


No big deal, I go into package manager BUT nothing shows up for libxfce4panel* . Wonder why that is?

I pass other checks

 Panel Auto-Hide Problem

 
 by jesusmccloud on: Apr 14 2013
 
Score 50%

Hi!
First of all: great work!

I did however notice a minor glitch that results in a huge usability problem:
When the panel where the plugin is added to is set to auto-hide, hovering the mouse over a window-preview does not prevent auto-hide. This results in a usability problem: When I click on a window-preview to focus an application window and the panel is hidden the preview loses focus.
Expected behaviour: focus the window corresponding to the preview.
I currently work around this by setting the auto-hide delay to a very high value.

Would it be possible to prevent auto-hide while hovering the preview or figure out a way for the preview not to lose focus when the panel is hidden (personally I'm fine either way)

I use Arch Linux with Compiz 0.8.8

I have the same problem when auto-hiding of the xfce-panel is activated.

This also affects any right-click action. When I right-click on an icon in the dockbar, the context menu pops up. Then I move the mouse to the context menu and the xfce-panel will auto-hide. After that selecting anything in the context menu has no effect. For example: I cant close any windows with the context menu because the panel will auto-hide and selecting "close application" in the context menu will not work.

Maybe you can think of a solution for this problem.

Thank you.
