Bug Description

[enhancemnent, wish]

It would be great if CD could read and store the rendering mode (GL / Cairo) in the configuration file.

Prompt the user which rendering mode to use only when the config file does not tell (eg. at first run), then store the value in the config file, and tell the user he/she can change the value in there.

Thank you for this idea!
Which version of Cairo-Dock do you use? Because this option should already be integrated into the latest beta release (we have a weekly ppa if you want or you can also compile this beta version => )

I'm using: deb stable cairo-dock
It's on a Debian lenny (with bpo).

Granted, I did not try the weekily ppa for stability reasons. I'll try it and report back if it works here.

( Thanks for that fast answer! :-) )

It works as you said with: deb hardy main
You can close this issue, sorry for the noise... :-(

Thank you for your great work! :-)
