cairo-dock - A dock to launch your programs easily.


cairo-dock [options]


Cairo-Dock is a pretty, light and convenient interface to your desktop, able to replace
advantageously your system panel!

It features multi-docks, taskbar, launchers and a lot of useful applets.
Applets can be detached from the dock to act as desktop widgets.
Numerous ready-to-use themes are downloadable in 1 click, and can be easily customized at
your convenience.
It can use hardware acceleration (OpenGL) to be very fast and low on CPU.

It's recommended to install the PLUG-INS package ( cairo-dock-plug-ins ) to have access to
more views, dialogues and many plug-ins and applets.

Some screenshots are available :
