Bug Description

After latest update (3.4.0) the zoom on hovering the mouse over an icon doesn't work. Tried to reset zoom effect values to default, tried GLX and non GLX-Version on two different systems (Intel Graphics card and nvidia GTX 650 ti)

System is: Fedora 20 x86_64, KDE desktop, Kwin window manager, nouveau driver

Solved:
I found out that this problem is fedora related. They removed the zoom effect from cairo-dock rpm package due to copyright issues. So it won't be available in fedora package anymore. Who wants this effect can install cairo-dock-freeworld from rpmfusion repo instead, otherwise the only solution is to live with it.

Yes, it's the reason. Thanks to Apple ;-)

Yes. Maybe we should add a message... Hard to know what we can do in this patents (troll?) world :-)

No problem, found out what's the matter, problem is solved for me.

That would be a good idea, maybe replace the zoom settings section with a message, that this option isn't available in this version.

Yes that's apple, taking without giving back. Sometimes they forget where they would be today without FreeBSD, OpenGL and other open source projects.

Yes, we should do that.

And then you can listen some people saying: "But their products are so cuuuuute, I looove them, my Mac (yes, it's not a basic computer) is so much better compared to my very old and cheap computer!" :-)
