Cairo-Dock Version: 2.2.0-0beta4
OS: LinuxMint9 (lucid-based)
Kernel: 2.6.32-21
OpenGL: yes
Window Manager: Compiz w/emerald
Desktop: Gnome 2.30.2

Not a bug, but a feature request: I prefer using the digital clock, and the only issue I have with its appearance is that the date and time run together, such as Mon 23 Aug09:37:26 AM. While I would much prefer the date and time be on separate lines, if you could at least inject a space between the two I would appreciate it.

Otherwise I'm enjoying using the dock!

Thanks.

the date and time will automatically adjust depending on the size of the applet
if it's a desklet, you can resize it easily with alt + middle click

After further experimentation, I discovered that the date and time only run together on a single line if the clock configuration option "Ratio to apply on text" is at 1.00. If I drop it don even to 0.996, then the date and time are on separate lines; if the ratio is set to 1.00, it runs together on one line.

Is it possible to have an option to force the date/Time to be on a single line ? (because sometimes it appears on 2 lines at startup)

what's the size of your desklet (or your icon if you're in dock mode) ? and the font used for the text ?
maybe you could just stretch it a little, it's probably very close to the limit.

Of course it's close to the limit... But it's strange to have this difference on startup.

it's because the size of the text can change with the content
to avoid changes during a session, the applet calculates the width once and for all on startup (and on reload) with the current time and date.

just to argue : it's too bad to not have the correct display (1 line instead of 2) just because it's monday "in french" (lun.) (which is shorter than "mer." ) and 11:11 (which is shorter than "23:32") !!! I don't want to wait 1 hour and a minute just to have "12:12" to be enough large to restart my dock with the right display !

Ok for a simple option in the config ?

yep, but I'd like to keep the automatic layout, so maybe a "force 1 line" parameter, false = current behavior, true = 1 line whatever
