Hi,
I've got a Problem with the default Dock, I've set the margin between Frame and Icon to 4 but it is only applied beneath the icons not above, I've set the dock to stick on the top of my screen, the icons now start at the first pixel on the top and beneath the icons theres a space of 4 pixels I want that space to be used above too like in older versions is this a bug or is it supposed to look like that?

Hi Guest,

Can you give us some informations like your distribution (and version), your desktop environment (gnome, KDE, etc.) your WM (metacity, compiz, etc.) and the version of Cairo-Dock?
Maybe one or two screenshots can also help

µcan you upload your picture on uppix.net or imageshark.us, etc. and post here the link? (you can drag and drop your file into dnd2share applet and paste the link here )

Maybe a problem with compiz or gnome (do you have a gnome panel below/above the dock.

Thanks for the screenshot

I had a panel above the dock but i tried on an diffrent pc without the panel same problem the icons are not centered vertically no space above the icons only beneath.
So your problem is that the icon aren't centered vertically ON the dock ? Can you try with a smaller "reflection" (Icon module in the config panel)

Guest, Sunday 01 November 2009 à 23:00

The reflection property didn't change anything, if i raise the size of the margin between icon and border they still stick to the top of the pannel even tough the dock gets bigger.

Guest, Tuesday 03 November 2009 à 12:04

I played around with the option a little bit more and I discovered if I put the dock to the bottom it centers the icons correctly but as soon as i put it to the top the icons are stuck to the top. This happens for all the dock themes with 2d docks.

Guest, Tuesday 03 November 2009 à 12:10

I tried docking right and left, right looks correct but on the left the icons stick to the very left so, this seems to be a real bug

thanks

I've commited a fix yesterday, so it's available on BZR, and soon on our PPA and repository.
I completely forgot to test it though

Guest, Thursday 05 November 2009 à 08:19

Ahh great, but do you mean the standard ppa or the weekly one? cause I am using the standard one right now.

I think both will be updated (because it also corrects 2 ennoying bugs), but it takes some time (LP is full)

Guest, Sunday 08 November 2009 à 13:29

Got the update today from the weekly ppa, works nicely thanks.
