A docker for KDE, GNOME and XFCE4.

After reading dockers for Linux , I felt “kinda” pissed off.

The story is listed in NewsForge.

It is a KDE oriented article about several dockers for the KDE desktop, all great and good.

No problem with that, but not mentioning Alltray makes me feel asif this article is not giving a complete picture.

The fact that Alltray not only works in KDE but also in GNOME and XFCE4 only makes this docker greater, if not the best.

A story about dockers for KDE should be complete, and should also mention dockers like Alltray, even if they are not specifically made for KDE only.


I haven’t read the article correctly and was too hastily in my comment, Alltray is a nice app but has nothing to do with the story I commented on, Thanks Fool for pointing this out in your comment. My bad.



  1. I think you misunderstood. Please go read the other article again.
    It’s not about dockers, it’s about docks.

  3. I’ve been using Alltray for a while and I really like it. I’ve used it in Gnome, XFCE, Compiz, and Fluxbox. I use Alltray with Thunderbird, XMMS, and Xchat.

    It seems to work flawlessly in Gnome (with Metacity). Ie., when alt-tabbing between windows and when using Alltray with an app on desktop startup.

    With Compiz replacing Metacity at Gnome startup, I noticed sometimes Alltray would have some problems “alltraying” an app.

    In Fluxbox, when you “alt-tab” it would also pick up the “alltrayed” apps. Also sometimes the app would fail to “alltray” on startup.

    I noticed with XFCE one minimal problem, but a problem nonetheless. When you clicked on the XMMS Alltray icon and then minimized it agian, alt-tabbing would still find the XMMS windows, even minimized to the tray.

    Indeed, Altray is a great and very useful little app, but still has room to grow and develop some more.
