Subject description: OSX like taskbar/launcher Eye Candy
 

Cairo-Dock is an animated launch bar similar to SimDock or AWN.

Home page:
http://cairo-dock.org/

Project page:
http://developer.berlios.de/projects/cairo-dock/

After trying precompiled versions of Cairo Dock on Lighthouse I decided to have a go at compiling the latest stable release for LHP5.00D and here it is:

Cairo-Dock 2.1.3 & Plugins: 7mb (Thanks to TazOC for hosting....you're a legend Taz)
SFS:
http://aracnachid.lhpup.org/downloads/cairo-dock-2.1.3-9-i686_495.sfs
MD5:
http://aracnachid.lhpup.org/downloads/cairo-dock-2.1.3-9-i686_495.sfs-md5.txt

I have included the required lib files in the sfs and have tested in LHP5 just use Boot Manager to mount the SFS at boot and run cairo dock with:

cairo-dock

I have also compiled the latest development release for anyone interested, it includes xml menu support and has many new applets. I compiled it using cmake which was a pain but it turned out ok. Was compiled against newer glib files also included in the sfs but it has bumped th size of the sfs up to 15mb.
This version is my personal favorite as it supports KDE4, XFCE and Gnome menus.

Here it is:

Cairo-Dock 2.2.0 & Plugins & Updated Glibs
SFS:
http://aracnachid.lhpup.org/downloads/cairo-dock-2.2.0-1-i686-alpha_495.sfs
MD5:
http://aracnachid.lhpup.org/downloads/cairo-dock-2.2.0-1-i686-alpha_495.sfs-md5.txt

Edit: Also icons can be added into cairo easily from the KDE4 menu just drop and drag.

Please report any bugs on this thread

Enjoy!
