Docky 2 Package by Kshegzyaj Docky 2 Package by Kshegzyaj
English
Some Docky 2 features such as theming are really good things, but it really needs Gnome-Do compatibility !
Here are some themes I made while playing aroud with Docky 2...Also included replacement icons, they're not very different from the original ones, I just wanted them to be a bit smooth.

Attention :
PlasticGlass has to be used in 3D background mode ! Please choose the correct dock size.
Inlaid looks better when using the panel mode !

Install script is provided, only double click it, and confirm if asked (make sure it is executable).

Any suggestion is welcome. Feedbacks are appreciated.

Certaines options de Docky 2 sont vraiment de bonnes choses, mais il manque quand même la ré-intégration de Gnome-Do !
Voilà quelques thèmes que j'ai obtenus en m'amusant un peu avec Docky 2...Egalement inclus des icones de remplacement, elles sont pas très différentes de l'originales, je voulais juste les rendre un peu plus douces.

Attention :
PlasticGlass doit être utilisé en mode 3D background ! Choisissez la bonne taille de dock.
Inlaid est plus joli en mode panel.

Script d'installation inclus, il suffit de le double-cliquer, et confirmer.

Toute suggestion est la bienvenue. Commentaires appréciés.



Changelog
v0.2 - December 31th 2009 :
- menu background fixed (Inlaid)
- install script fixed
v0.1 - December 27th 2009 :
- first release

As far as I remember, the color depends on your GTK+ theme of choice.

Well, I currently am not able to do so. But .svg files can easily be converted to .png files :
- Inkscape provides a bitmap export feature (here, bitmap means raster picture, not .bmp filetype)
- Gimp can render .svg files to raster pictures (and you then can save to any filetype)
- if imagemagick is installed, you can batch convert .svg files by typing in a console 'convert -background non *.svg *.png'

Sorry for not being able to convert them by myself. I can't use my own computer - its motherboard is dead - and I can't install programms on my sister's computer without her approval.

I don't know if Photoshop can read .svg files, Illustrator is supposed to be able to do so. But I've been told Illustrator sucks in .svg rendering (don't know wich version it was, perhaps the last version works fine with .svg). I'll buy a new computer, but I need to earn some more money and/or stumble upon attractive ads...

I don't know, maybe someone did a stacks plugin, you should have a look at some un-official extensions :)

i have no clue where to find them lol, i do have AWN just because i know how to do alot to it, but i have docky aswell, i cant figure out how to change icons in it, if u had a port of your theme for AWN i would gladly use it :)

Well, it's been a while - almost 2 years :o - since the last time I used AWN...I've been running a dock-free desktop for a while in the meantime.
About the icons, Docky actually uses the system icon theme.

ok i did that and added it, but it says its docky, not docky 2, and how do i add your theme???

Actually, "Docky" was first a theme of "Gnome-Do", but it was more than a theme and it became so popular that it's been decided to separate "Docky" from "Gnome-Do". But "Gnome-D"o kept providing its "Docky" theme, so the new fork became "Docky 2". But now, Gnome-Do doesn't feature its Docky theme.

To install the themes, run the provided script. Then launch Docky and go to the preferences dialog (click the anchor) and select the theme you want to use.

To install the themes manually, copy and paste the themes folders to ~/.local/share/docky/themes/
To have them installed for any user, you'll have to copy and paste the themes to /usr/share/docky/themes

how do you get docky 2

:iconkshegzyaj:
Kshegzyaj Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2010  Student Interface Designer
The easiest way probably is to use its launchpad repository.
This should work :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:docky-core/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docky

Check the Wiki for further informations.

Those replacement icons, are they meant for the anchor icon on the dock itself or for the application icon?

I've been trying to change the icon Docky uses for the anchor icon because it's very ugly when you want to change all yours icons to text-based and you have this one nasty anchor icon throwing off the flow. :la:

My purpose was to replace the application icons. But ~0rAX0 did find a way to replace the icon in Docky itself (check Hybrid Docky)...but it was a while ago, there already have been lots of updates since then :p Ask him, his method may still work (also could you tell me, I don't remember how he did, and I would really enjoy to know :D)

Finally figured out how to change the icon. It's not like ~0rAX0 has it, but at least I got rid of that ugly blue anchor once and for all. :la:

Did you use the provided script to install them ?

Make sure the themes are copied in
~/.local/share/docky/themes
Then relaunch docky, and go to the properties, the themes should be available in the list.

Yeah, I've been told illustrator is a noob in SVG, even though SVG is supposed to be web standard, and even though Adobe is said to have participated in SVG creation...
I guess, you'll have to install Inkscape and then export to png. Don't worry, Inkscape is free ;)

Thanks for this report. Actually, I already noticed this little bug, it seems as if Docky doesn't support correctly the gradients, for the menu. For now, the only solution I found was not to use gradients in this part of the theme.
I thought I already replaced this one, I do apologize, I'm currently using PlasticGlass so I didn't notice I left this menu background.
If you know how to use Inkscape, you can edit this picture by yourself and set the background to a black/grey variation, if you don't want to wait for the update. If you prefer using transparency, you can also take the backgrounds from HUD (found in '/usr/share/docky/themes/HUD' or something like that)

Nice skin. Do you use new Docky? I'm afraid to install it, cause it's just in a development stage as I know. I have Ubuntu 9.10. So, does it work well for you? :)
