Bug Description

Hello,

The Cairo-Dock team proposes a new "bugs fixed" version of their Cairo-Dock packages.

This is the Upstream ChangeLog:
   - Updated translations
   - Themes: Renamed the default theme and move it to the new 'themes' directory
   - Included here our default-panel theme from our server in order to use this
      theme without an Internet connexion
      (this theme is highly recommended for the Cairo-Dock' session)
   - Moved 'battery' to cairo-dock-plug-ins
   - Theme manager: fixed the preview made when the current theme is saved
   - Fixed a bug with icons that are always visible
      (their alpha was not reseted correctly)
   - Fixed a bug that prevented the dock from hiding when leaving
      and re-entering quickly
   - Containers: set opacity to 0 on creation, so that we don't get grey
      rectangles on loading (before we receive the first X Expose event)
      + increase the size of default windows to avoid invisible icons LP: #960282
   - When destroying a flying container, don't forget to detach the icon
   - Removed prints
   - Pango: only used the logical rectangle in order to avoid any deplacements
   - Draw: Icons always visible: limit the background margin to 1px, avoid
      icons to stick togather
   - Menu: disabled the Quit menu entry for all Cairo-Dock sessions
      (not only 'cairo-dock')
   - cairo-dock-session: only modify Compiz settings if '--replace' paramater
      is given
   - don't launch 'cairo-dock' if Cairo-Dock is already use only by current user
   - Session: Used shorter names
      (was too long for DM and we were not able to read the full name)
   - Used IsRunnableHelper to check if compiz can be launched or we have to
      use metacity (on Ubuntu)
   - The latest version of unity-2d-panel is now supported
      (it's no longer needed to modify config file with root rights or to kill
      a processus to have unity-2d-panel and Cairo-Dock)
   - cairo-dock.conf: fixed a typo (a wrong icon name)
   - initial-setup: no longer modify gconf keys of gnome settings (LP: #981092)
   - cairo-dock.c: initialised gettext before getopt in order to translate
      the output of 'cairo-dock -h'
   - Used the new name of the default theme
   - fixed the retrieval of the desktop background (was broken since the switch
      to GTK3)
   - Use the right web address of the themes' directory on our server.
   - Help.conf: removed lines which only contain 'TODO' and bump Help's version
   - fixed the drawing of multi-lines dialogs (sometime the text was invisible)
   - X manager: when receiving a NetDesktopGeometry signal from X
      notify everybody every time, and also update the number of viewports
   - Welcome message: replaced 'Cairo-Dock2' by 'Cairo-Dock'

This bzr branch has been linked to this bug report: lp:~cairo-dock-team/ubuntu/precise/cairo-dock/3.0.0.1
This branch should be ready to be pushed on lp:ubuntu/cairo-dock (except the UNRELEASED version in debian/changelog)

@ubuntu-release team: This is a "bugs fixed" version of the previous RC and the diff is huge mainly because of the update of po files and also because we have renamed default theme, included 'Default-Panel' theme from our servers for those without an Internet connexion and moved gauges themes to 'cairo-dock-plug-ins'
Changes are detailed here and the reason to upload this version on Precise is simply to fix all these bugs and UI details :)
It only impacts Cairo-Dock packages so it's not a problem for other Ubuntu packages ;)
Also, I've compiled these packages on my pc with pbuilder and this version is also available on this public ppa: ppa:cairo-dock-team/ppa
https://launchpad.net/~cairo-dock-team/+archive/ppa/+packages

Thank you for your help! ;)

PS: Don't forget our plug-ins ! ( LP: #983289 )
