Author Topic: Cairo-Dock more than once!! (SOLVED)  (Read 2230 times)

Another issue with my fresh installation of VL7.0.....

After starting up and getting to the Desktop (XFCE), Cairo-Dock seems to be starting twice.  When I move my mouse to the Dock and the icons grow as I move across them, I can see another instance of the Dock right behind the one with the bouncing icons.  It is as if the Dock is starting twice and laying one instance directly on top of the other.

What's my step(s) to solving?

Thanks. Smiley

:::EDIT:::  I opened HTOP and Cairo is there FOUR times!   The first time it is listed is with "-c" added but the other instances don't have any CL switches.
I also checked 'Session and Startup/Application Autostart' and Cairo is there just once.

:::FIXED?:::  I opened HTOP again and killed every instance of Cairo that was listed, closed HTOP, saved the session (with no Cairo-Dock running), rebooted and now there's only one instance.
I'm guessing that somehow, each session was being saved to include Cairo-Dock and with it also in 'Application Autostart', that was resulting in multiple Docks. (Yes?  No?)

Anyway, it appears to be normal now.

OK, here is the deal with cairo doc.
This application will be started each boot because it is set in Menu --> Settings --> Sessions and Startup

The trouble is it is also an application that is saved to start when you have save session checkmarked in your log out box.

So one of those must go.
If you keep Save Session close all of the extra cairo-docs save one.
