Onboard doesn't respect launcher icon size

Bug Description

Onboard positions itself nicely to keep the launcher visible. However when you change the launcher icon size from the default (System Settings>Appearance>Launcher icon size) it doesn't adjust it's size and overlaps when using 64 pixel icons.

This is because the size of the onboard at the start is hard-coded to work with the default launcher, though a dynamic resize based on launcher size would be nice.

Because of comment #2 are we doing anything more with this bug? should it be triaged and/or closed?

Chris, the snapshot in the Nexus 7 PPA should be able to do dynamic resizing already. You can turn it on in preferences (onboard-settings) -> Window -> Dock to screen edge. Onboard then acts as a panel and horizontally expands to the size of the workarea. This version was a just a rough first sketch, but it should mostly work. Trunk does it a bit more reliably now, with smoother transitions and slide-in animation.

I'll keep the status at confirmed for Onboard, as there are still some pieces missing before the docking mode can become default (mainly resizing and auto-show repositioning).

still and issue in Raring 13.04.

Marmuta, I couldn't find the "Dock to screen edge" option under Preferences. Is that still bundled in 0.98.2-0buntu1 ?

Sean, Raring still has the old 0.98.2 release without docking and without the touch enhancements. We're close to releasing a fresh (alpha) version with improved docking. I'm busily ironing out some last minute bugs.
