    cairo-dock issue (Arch)

    I just finished installing the cairo dock for Arch and i went to run it from the command line and receive this error:

    Code:
    (cairo-dock:17889): GTK_WARNING **: cannot open display:
    I'm assuming this is because GTK doesn't know where to find the x server??

    Solved it. I searched cairo under applications and clicked on GLX-DOCK and enabled OPENGL and that fixed the display issue I was having.

    UPDATE: Oops, Never mind. The dock comes up and displays a message saying no plug-ins were found and will close now.

    You can see the error above the dock.

    if not, then:
    Code:
    No plug-in were found.
    Plug-ins provide most of the functionnalities of Cairo-Dock (annimations, applets, views, etc).
    See http://glx-dock.org for more information.
    Since there is almost no meaning in running the dock without them the application will quit now.
    I am going to hit google and see what I can come up with. Hopefully find a solution tonight.

    Man This made the installation a breeze. Only took 2 minutes too. The dock is looking sweet!
