BOBAH13

Recommended Posts

1. No, not updated yet & therefore not working.

2. hihi, yes, we all have this problem... Bobah isn't very detailed in version-history. Usually the File from the first Post in this thread is the current version, no matter what the text says (the text is outdated, usually). Currently its 5.2.1

So would it make sense to download it-is it a security update Just wondering and thanks in advance for your reply

No, there are lots of new features/fixes, it's absolutely worth downloading! But you should install into a new folder (therefore loose your settings). And you will have to download new skins, because they are not compatible. But thats no problem, because all the skins have been updated, too.

Win+M is working fine for me... (XP SP3). Sure it has nothing to do with another app? Did you try a windows-restart without the programs you are usually running in the background?

I'm running Vista SP1. May be due to this. I will check it without everything in a second.

@BlaZeOSX: Ah, vista! Actually there have been some issues reported by Vista-Users... I guess Bobah does not test the dock on Vista at all. Did you try the compatibilty mode with XP or something? (Sorry, i never tried vista, so i can't really help you).

After restarting the pc it works...well...at least without an address violation :P Now after a while it stops minimizing windows to the dock and fades them out to the taskbar like normal Vista.

And if I press Win+M the windows just disappear in the taskbar but they were not minimized to the dock. This behaviour occurs continuosly, no connection to the problem above.

Restarting the dock solves this problem.

I will try the compatibility mode for XP now.

Edit: Changing the mode to XP resulted in the adress violation -.-

I have made a video screen shot of the bug error "CreateFileMapping" returned NULL!", look here please:

http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/showthread.php?t=50659

Perhaps I have finally understood thing it is that it causes the error to xwindowsdock, it is the program "Power Translator Pro" (http://www.lec.com/listProductFamily.asp?p...-Translator-Pro) It also integrates a toolbar in IE Explorer for this when I open Internet Explorer goes out the error. Is the question now why "Power Translator Pro" produces conflict with "XWindowsDock"? with RocketDock I don't have this problem.

I know this has been asked before, but I still cannot figure out how to turn a .smxd file into a usable skin. Could anyone help please?

Just place it into the "XWindowsDock/Skins/ folder. No unpack needed. But it has to be a smxd which is updated to work with 5.2.1.!

(Phoshi was faster... :P)

@ atreiu:

Hey ! Thanks for the new version of Xmail! it's really good (no bugs so far and working smoother, even in ctrl-click)..

One little (?) request: can you make it so a simple left clicking will open Gmail? (or any other url ?) instead of running an .exe file, I mean.

thanks!

Open Letter to this Community

So, after 1 day of cooling down, I'm back to this thread for contributing with help and support, a commitment I have with BOBAH13 himself and his wonderful piece of art called XWindows Dock.

But before anything else, I'd like to turn 'Crystal Clear' some points that seems to be forgotten from time to time:

- I'm doing this as a good will, free will and for free basis, so I expect some acknowledgment and respect (no, I'm not asking for 'Thank you' messages from you guys) not only for my efforts, but also for all contributors' efforts. besides, you don't have to like me, but you should at least respect me as an individual;

- No rude, pseudo-intimidating, menacing personal messages will be be treated privately or with kindness; they'll be made public by me! The only ones who can actually ban me are moderators and admins, and I'm sure they don't send childish messages to anyone. Look, I'm 49yo and I do not have much pacience with childish behavior; even my two teenage kids behave better than some I've seen over the 'net. Spare me and yourselves of this shame; and no, I cannot understand and will not condone the so-called "artist's mood changes", OK? ;)

- The only person that will make me stop doing the kind of support I've being doing is BOBAH13 himself, and we have a wide open channel for communicating with each other, so no third person's note on behalf of him will be seriously considered; he has already publicly expressed his acknowledgment and thankfulness for my efforts and this is what matters after all;

- Some posters seem to forget this site has it's rules and punishments and keep posting what they think is 'funny' at the wrong places; I won't reply to you guys, but I have a word of advice: read the site rules and behave, kids...

Having all of this being said, I'm slowly coming back as my mood improves over time...

You can do this yourself by entering the right command line parameters. Do you use Firefox? Then enter something like this in the "Run on Click"-Field:

C:Program FilesMozilla Firefoxfirefox.exe /URL http://mail.google.com

How do we know this won't be stopped by Apple as Y'z Dock was? If this project dies I'll die too T_T

I really hope so, too. Do you have any details, why Y'z dock was stopped, at docks like object dock, rocketdock etc. not? I couldn't find anything reliable about it on the net...

@godiex: no problem ;) So many things can be done by command-line, but only a few people know about that :)

excellent! I should know about these things.

one bug found though: it returns the number of unread email - (minus) 1. ¿? weird.

Oh yeah, that's weird! On your gmail account? What's the name of the IMAP-Folder you are watching? Nested? How many mails (read & unread) are in the folder, for real? You did a correct reinstall, right? You did delete your Docklets/XMail-Folder before updating?

Hope BOBAH13 found that post where matonga talks about the frames per second /zoom of the this dock, cause the smoothness of rocketdock is hard to leave.

Here's why i choose rocketdock

Rocketdock with smooth animations + stacks (plus reflection if u make icons reflective)

or

X Windows Dock with stacks and reflection

So with my equation (pretty intense one )rocket dock has 2.5 things i can have (.5 cause reflection is not automatic) while XWD has only 2 .

therefore Rocketdock>XWD XWD is greater then Rocketdock once it has smooth magnification.

I know i mentioned magnification alot and this will be my last time. Hope it gets fixed and thanks for the great work!!!!!!

Panta, you've way overreacted.

All he said was that perhaps you should leave questions to someone who knows the answer, when you only have a vague sense of it. Makes sense to me, no?

So stop whining, and get back to doing awesome things, k?

I consider this subject closed, I'm over it now, but you're entitled to have your own opinion... while I'm keeping mine! ;):)

This could keep going and going but I'm done with it.

This can not work, siik, because this posts by you, explaining where to post anything, will be overseen, as soon as they are one page behind or new people join. My 50 Cent. A subforum with stickys would do the job...
