Cairo-dock has a family-likeness with OS X dock, but with more options. It uses cairo to render nice graphics, and Glitz to use hardware acceleration. It's fully configurable and can be a taskbar too. You can easily plug applets into it.

This is metapackage that provides the components necessary for running Cairo-dock. This installs a cairo-dock-core application and cairo-dock-plugins package easily.

And Cairo-dock installs cairo-dock-core and plugins and makes sense as Cairo-dock.

Just Install it on Linux mint mate environment and it Looks awsome and much better than Docky or Plank. I wonder why it is not included as base package instead any other Panel

A must have as far as I am concerned. All my major applications are available immediately and can be started with one click of the mouse. With the Mint-Y icons it looks really tasty too!

I love this dock, I use it as a hidden shortcut holder to keep my desktop clean of stuff, but it's so full of cool things and gimmicks... I use it on all my Linux machines.

It does not work with 4k monitors. On uninstall it leaves behind tons of plug-ins which must be uninstalled one-by-one.

This is GREAT dock software. Do not believe any of the negative comments. This dock is so much better than any of the others. I use the Alu theme and configure it so it has a Macintosh look and feel. (Like the look of the Mac, hate the macOS software.) Cairo Dock takes a little time to understand, but once you get it, configuration is easy. My recommendation is to have an idea of what you want before you install. Then choose a theme that best matches your idea and configure from there. The best part is, you can use any PNG image file for an icon. Just keep it to nothing more than 512x512 and you'll do fine.

Not good. Yes, there are tons of options if compared to the other, but those options change nothing! In other words, most applets for this thing do NOT WORK! Even the ones downloaded from their own website! HDDTemp? No, it doesn't work. Calendar? Nope. CPUtemp? no! Their own system menu is BROKEN! All you need to break it is click on it, type something so it will search and position itself off and remain that way until you either kill it or log in again. In other words, it's too damn easy to break this dock application, it's ridiculous. Not to mention the notification are is treated like a separate dock and that is not even configurable. Cairo-dock tries to impress you with its little tricks, but in the end you might notice it's just a bugfest masked as a dock application. I like Avant-Window-Navigator better, but until it's available to use on LM19, I'll look for something else.

Not bad. Yet a bit too complicated in configuring with mouse. Also I might br wrong, but I wasn't able to set up launcher icon to be an app icon when certain app is running. E.g. When I use launche to run an app anoher icon appers in dock. Wish it was more macos-like: most of all I lack the 'move icon to pin it' feature:) Thnx for the ffort anyways
