Cairo Dock issues


I’m running OpenSUSE 11 (GNOME) and I just enabled Compiz-Fusion and installed Cairo Dock (this is a fresh install). I also run Ubuntu 8.04 with both Compiz and the Cairo Dock and it installed and runs flawlessly.

The issue I’m having in SUSE is when I click on an application launcher on the dock it wont open and does nothing. If I right click on the launcher and choose “Modify this launcher” and click “Open” under “Image’s name or path” I get the following error

**the folder contents could not be displayed**
Error stating file '/home/steve/terminal': No such file or directory

It looks like it’s looking the my home directory for these applications, any idea why or how to fixy?

TY in advance <:-)

malcolmlewis brought up a good question in another thread regarding the fact that I’m running Cairo Dock using SU. This was the issue here and running it as myself is now working again.

I have a new issue though, I can’t change themes without running the dock as root - now sure why?

All issues were resolved with malcolmlewis answer in this thread
