chloes_email.desktop      coolmath.desktop    up_to_ten.desktop
clementine7ALN4W.desktop  storybooks.desktop

Ok should I uninstall Docky before I install the .deb or would it be better to use the PPA ?

Sorry Mark that didn't work either, I also tried completely uninstalling as per post #11 and installing the .deb but still no joy :(

Nothing I'm aware of, I tried completely rebooting but that made no difference, is there perhaps another lightweight dock you know of I could use other than Cairo dock ?

I only have it installed on Chloes PC, I use Cairo Dock on my PC and there's no dock on my wifes PC, anyway I've given up on Docky and tried Cairo Dock on Chloes PC which is fine except it will only recognise and dock one SSB icon ie she has 4 SSB icons uptoten. coolmath, chloes email & story books, but it doesn't matter what SSB icon I drag into the dock it will only dock it as coolmath, I've also tried dragging from ~/.local/applications and it makes no difference.

sometimes there's just no winning

I'd be interested to know if docky works on your other PC's

If it doesn't it's liable to be something I have installed that you don't

if it does .. then we can look into why Chcloes is different

I'lll try it on a couple of other machines here too tomorrow.

OK I installed Docky on my PC (PM4) and it's doing exactly the same thing

Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C display
No mad rush tonight .. but post them when you can.
