    Angry Cairo-dock script problem

    Been trying to get opensuse 11.1 all set this week and been having a number of problems. Currently working on appearance. Onto cairo dock. I downloaded through YaST and tired to set it up.

    TERMINAL
    -->su....
    #->cairo-dock

    app window opens and i choose theme. window closes but immediately reopens. terminal displays:

    uncompressing theme Aero ...

    gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    warning : (cairo-dock-themes-manager.c:cairo_dock_manage_themes:476)
    Attention : directory /tmp/cairo-dock-net-theme.bW3Pro-data is empty or unreadable


    no idea how to get around this and the only way to kill the script is to relog. any help would be awesome.

    Don't launch this app as root. You should be able to configure as regular user.

    Starting with installed cairo packages - what is output of

    rpm -qa |grep cairo

    I have (for reference):

    linux:/home/dean # rpm -qa |grep cairo
    cairo-dock-themes-1.6.3.1-1.pm.20081207
    python-cairo-1.4.12-19.1
    cairo-1.4.14-32.1
    cairo-dock-1.6.3.1-0.pm.20081207
    cairo-dock-clock-1.6.3.1-3.pm.20081207
    cairomm-1.4.8-16.1

    You package versions may differ if using 11.1, but names still apply.

    What happens when you try another theme? I can't replicate your problem...
