Report a bug

You think you found a bug? May be it has already been fixed in the BZR version, so please check on the BZR section of the forum to be sure it is not already a known problem.

  • If you found it then the next stable version of the dock will fix your problem.

Check that the bug is not already known

  • Read our WIKI : specially the Recurrent Problems section (which can help you to resolve some bug like a black background, messages at startup, etc.)
  • it is recommended to upgrade to the latest stable version of the dock in order to not report a bug which has already been fixed. The latest version of the dock is always reported on the top banner of the cairo-dock website
  • If it's not a recurrent problem you can report the bug.

  • Include also some informations like your distribution (Ubuntu 9.10 32bits, Debian lenny 64bits,...), your Desktop Manager (Gnome, KDE, XFCE,...) your Window Manager (Compiz, Metacity, Kwin, etc.), if you use Cairo-Dock with or without OpenGL, your graphic card and its drivers (nVidia 9300 - drivers 185.18.14, Intel x3100 - xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.8.0-0 , Ati HD 4800 - catalyst 9.8), with which theme, etc.
  • Include the method in order to reproduced the bug
  • Join the output of :
    in a terminal with the bug reproduced (and :
    cairo-dock -l debug
    if you think it can be helpful)
  • You can use grep to restrict the size of this debug : So if for example your problem is on powermanager do something like this:
    cairo-dock -l debug | grep powermanager
  • If you want to join an image to your bug report you can easily upload it to the website via the drop to share applet available in cairo-dock. Just drop the image you want to insert to your bug report on the drop to share applet. The image will be uploaded to a file server. After the upload you can directly copy the link given by the drop to share applet on the website.
