For 64 bits processor

Here is a copy paste from a forum user (Ravan) who fought hard to make it work on his AMD64

Yes, it works perfectly now (as far as I tested ) but for the dependencies, I could have gone a simpler route... It turns out that the great AMD64 dependency solver tool (when running 32bit apps) called Getlibs does it all in one go.

So here is a short How-To for Cairo-Dock on Ubuntu Gutsy AMD64:

1. Install Getlibs following instructions on Automatically solves dependencies for 32-bit programs on 64-bit

2. Download the latest cairo-dock 32bit debs (both cairo-dock and plugins) to your home folder

3. Open a terminal screen and run:
~$ sudo dpkg –force-all -i cairo-dock*.deb
~$ sudo getlibs /usr/bin/cairo-dock
~$ sudo apt-get -f install

4. Try Cairo-Dock by giving the command cairo-dock in the same terminal screen and see if there are any dependency errors left. If so, use the 'manual 32bit libs installation' described on the getlibs page above to get them. If not, cairo-dock should run and open itself on your screen

5. If all is well, add cairo-dock to the Sessions list to make it start up at login...
