Bug Description

Hi, I'm pretty new to Linux. A month ago I installed Linux Mint Katya 11, and found the Cairo-Dock. This is a great addition to Linux Mint. Unfortunately, whenever I boot my computer, running cairo-dock with the mail applet and my computer is automatically connected to the Internet, starts cairo-dock in the maintenance-mode.

Perhaps could also the e-mail applet be expanded, so that not only the number of e-mails would be shown, but perhaps also a list of headlines, with additional option, to delete the e-mail immediately from the server without starting the e-mail utility.

Thank you for the great utility,

best regards,

Hello Dimrim and thank you for this bug report.

Is it possible to compile the dock in order to have a backtrace of the error? Simply have a look to this wiki page (it's easy, there is a script):

If you only have this bug at start up, can you do that:
 * create this file in your home directory: gdbinit
 * can you write this 3 lines in this file:
 * then open this window: System / Preferences / Applications at start up
 * edit the cairo-dock launcher and replace the command by this one: sh -c "gdb -x $USER/gdbinit cairo-dock > $USER/gdb_cairo-dock"
If you have a crash at start up, cairo-dock will not run and this file in your home directory will be interesting: gdb_cairo-dock

After having reproduce the crash, you can uninstall this version of cairo-dock and reinstall it just as before. Also, don't forget to use the previous command to launch Cairo-Dock at start up (cairo-dock -o (or -c)).
