gnome-do without docky ?

Dear community,

I was wondering if anybody could help me i had just installed opensuse 11.4 and i like it :slight_smile:
To the point now i was looking for the theme docky in gnome-do so that i could use the docky for my desktop to my surprise this wasn’t standing in the dropdown menu in themes in preferences in gnome-do so hereby my question how do i get the docky theme in gnome-do?

Thanks in advance.


I think you are mixing things here : gnome-do is not a docky. If you want a docky, you have Cairo-dock, AWN, docky.

I know gnome-do is not a docky but as the wiki from gnome-do tells me the theme docky would be available in the gnome-do appearance tab as mentioned here: Docky - GNOME Do Wiki

But it isn’t that’s where my question comes from.

Ok so i am 1 step further now i have followed the guide: Installing - Docky

when i do ./ in terminal i get an error containing

checking for DBUS_SHARP_10… no
configure: error: Package requirements (dbus-sharp-1.0 >= 0.7) were not met:

No package ‘dbus-sharp-1.0’ found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables DBUS_SHARP_10_CFLAGS
and DBUS_SHARP_10_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

And since i only can find dbus-sharp-0.7 and can’t find dbus-sharp-1.0 anywhere i am stuck here can anyone of you help me out here? I would be so gratefull cause i see no workaround to this problem atm.

P.S. i am kinda new on linux.

It’s already available in the Mono:Community:Do repository Search Results

Since your new, have a read here, especially about repositories: New User How To/FAQ (read only)

I got the following message, when I tried to install Docky from that source

docky-2.1.0-3.1.i586 requires mono(dbus-sharp-glib) =, but this requirement cannot be provided

some help please? :slight_smile:

Sorry for this message, I figured that was enough to install dbus-sharp-glib the version provided and edited by openSUSE, just search package with that name
