Je savais pas où poster ça, c'est plus une demande de truc et astuce.
Voilà, j'aimerais avoir une icone dans cairo dock (un launcher) qui fait s'afficher la widget layer de compiz (un peu comme l'icone de dashboard sur Mac OS ;))

Quelqu'un aurait une idée de comment faire ca?
(on pourrait le rajouter dans les trucs et astuces ensuite)

Merci!

Sorry for my broken english post.

I'd like to know, too.

I have just replied to almost the same question in the Ubuntu forum. Please check this thread.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=744668

The bash script file to toggle WidgetLayer can be run from a launcher of AWN (command : /fullpath/to/xxx.sh) , but not from a launcher of Cairo-Dock. ( I had installed AWN just only for posting replies to ubuntu forum. )

I also moved the file to /usr/local/bin , and specified the filename in a command entry box of a launcher on cairo-dock.
but not succeed to run it.

I try to summarize the problem :
you have a script (/path/to/script.sh), that is "chmod +x" and is working fine.
you create a launcher in the dock from scratch.
in the "Command" entry box, you write /path/to/script.sh, and the apply.
and then clicking on the launcher dosesn't launch the script ?

kawaji, thank you for the link to the Ubuntu forum topic!
I'll try as well tonight and I'll let you know whether it works or not.

ok, i tried, same problem here.
the script works fine when launched from a terminal.
creating a launcher in cairo-dock does nothing when launched.
same problem though with a launcher created on the desktop by the right click -> create new launcher command...
so maybe it's not a cairo dock issue, but rather a general launcher issue with scripts, or maybe only sh scripts, i haven't tried other kind of scripts...
(thought: the svn update script works in a launcher, right?)

so I've tried the method :

I make the script cairo-dock/compiz-expo.sh :
#!/bin/sh
dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=org.freedesktop.compiz /org/freedesktop/compiz/expo/allscreens/expo org.freedesktop.compiz.activate string:'root' int32:`xwininfo -root | grep id: | awk '{ print $4 }'`


chmod +x on it, then I create a launcher in the dock, specify /opt/cairo-dock/trunk/compiz-expo.sh (its path), set any icon and any name, validate. At last i click on the launcher -> works perfectly !

fabounet, did you try to make the script for widget layer taking what is presented in the link kawaji provided?
(I copied/pasted blindly what was said there, it didn't work.. I'll try your command line for expo tonight)

Merci pour vos infos,

@glattering
Sur mon desktop gnome, WidgetLayer est affichée en cliquant sur une icone.

....Anyway,

I've found script files, even in other directories, can be excuted from cairo-dock launchers.
You have to create script launchers from scratch like fabounet said in the above post.
Select ' Add a new launcher ' from cairo-dock menu -> Click ' New ' button to close a file browse window -> Edit name, command & icon name in ' new launcher ' properties window.

New launchers do not work if they are created by drag & drop script files or selecting files in the file browse window.
Strange files seems to be generated to /.cairo-dock/current_theme/launchers , which cairo-dock can not correctly read.

I think it would be nice if launchers for script files created by such ways also work well in newer cairo-dock.

Kawaji do you speak some french ?
I'll try to modify existing launcher (that is, change the command to a script's path), logically it should work.
Anyway this is a great trick for Compiz users, it should be on the wikis !

c'est au cas ou Tdey lirait ce thread....

Je suis pour l'apprentissage par le grand plongeon....

If only coz_ and Anubis could start posting in Italian

Anyway I tried that trick and it has been said the launcher has to be created from scratch. If you drop the script from Nautilus the command start with file:// so I guess it is not consider as a script but rather a file!

I also decided to try something else and it has a weird behaviour....I will also post in the compiz applet section

Anyway I tried to create a launcher from scratch from the dock that is coming with the compiz-icon applets and instead of activating the Expo mode it just launches CCSM

Even more strange. It actually execute the program to the left of my launcher...so i I move the launcher between th Emerald icon and the restart WM then it will start the emerald manager!!

Why?
