cairo-dock - An light eye-candy fully themable animated dock for any Linux desktop SYNOPSYS
cairo-dock Description An light eye-candy fully themable animated dock for any Linux desktop This has a family-likeness with OSX dock, but with more options. Uses cairo to render nice graphics, and Glitz to use hardware acceleration. It's fully configurable and can be a taskbar too. You can easily plug applets into it. Usage % cairo-dock [OPTION...] Options Help Options: -h, --help Show help options Application Options: -l, --log log verbosity (debug,message,warning,critical,error) default is warning -c, --cairo use Cairo backend -o, --opengl use OpenGL backend -O, --indirect-opengl use OpenGL backend and toggle On/Off indirect rendering. Use this instead of -o if you have some drawing artifacts, like invisible icons. -i, --indirect deprecated - see -O -a, --keep-above keep the dock above other windows whatever -p, --no-skip-pager show the dock in pager -b, --no-skip-taskbar show the dock in taskbar -s, --no-sticky don't make the dock appear on all desktops -t, --toolbar-hint force the window manager to consider cairo-dock as a toolbar instead of a dock -n, --normal-hint force the window manager to consider cairo-dock as a normal appli instead of a dock -e, --env force the dock to consider this environnement - it may crash the dock if not set properly. -d, --dir force the dock to load this directory, instead of ~/.config/cairo-dock. -m, --maintenance allow to edit the config before the dock is started and show the config panel on start -x, --exclude exclude a given plug-in from activating (it is still loaded though) -f, --safe-mode don't load any plug-ins -C, --capuccino -X, --expresso -L, --cafe-latte Cairo-Dock makes anything, including coffee ! -v, --version print version and quit. -M, --modules-dir ask the dock to load additionnal modules contained in this directory (though it is unsafe for your dock to load unnofficial mod- ules). -T, --testing for debugging purpose only. The crash manager will not be started to hunt down the bugs. -E, --easter-eggs for debugging purpose only. Some hidden and still unstable options will be activated. -S, --server address of a server containing additional themes. This will overwrite the default server address. -k, --locked lock the dock so that any modification is impossible for users. AUTHOR

asclock - the AfterStep clock SYNOPSIS
asclock [ -help] [-12 | -24] [-shape] [-position [+|-]x[+|-]y] [-exe program] [-theme dir] [-led color] [-noblink] [-dock] [-version] DESCRIPTION
The asclock is a clock written to emulate the date/time application on the NEXTSTEP(tm) operating system. asclock supports multiple lan- guages, military and AM/PM time formats, program execution, and the shape extension to X-Windows. CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
-help prints the usage message: usage: asclock [-options ...] where options include: -12 12 hour format -24 24 hour format -exe <program> program to start on click -led <color> color of the led -position [+|-]x[+|-]y position of asclock -shape without groundplate -theme <dir> theme directory -noblink don't blink -dock without window decorations -version show version information -12 or -24 sets the desired time format to either twelve hour with AM/PM ( -12 ) or military time ( -24 ). If no option is given military time is used. -shape turn on shaped window support for asclock. When this is turned on the asclock windows will only appear to be the led and date pad. By default shaped windows are turned off and the clock will appear on a 64 pixel by 64 pixel base. -led <color> specifies the color of the led. To find out what colors are available, try showrgb(1) (part of X11). -position [+|-]x[+|-]y specifies the starting position of asclock. The [+|-] works like the standard X-Windows x/y geometry option. -exe <program> specifies the application to start when the pointer is activated over asclock. To invoke applications with parameters, you have to set quotes around the command. See example below... -noblink specifies if asclock should blink. -theme <dir> specifies the theme to used. A theme consists of a directory containing 8 xpms and a position file called 'config'. Read the Themes section. -dock tells the window manager not to put window decorations arround asclock, useful for docking with Window Maker. Note that in several window managers this causes asclock to ignore the position specified with -position (if present). INVOCATION
asclock can be called from one of many ways. The most common invocation is the command line: [user@host] ~% asclock -12 -exe 'xlock -mode hop' & Another way to call asclock is from the window manager: *Wharf - - MaxSwallow "asclock" asclock -theme shape -12& This line, when placed in the .steprc file in the users home directory will cause asclock to use the shape extensions so that it will be a button on the Wharf(1) button bar under the afterstep(1) window manager. THEMES
A theme consists of a directory containing 8 xpms and a position file called 'config'. All tiles within the same xpm must have the same width or height, except the colon which has half the width of the other digits. The pixmaps are called: clock.xpm, date.xpm, led.xpm, month.xpm, weekday.xpm, hour.xpm, minute.xpm, second.xpm. For a full description of the format, take a look at README.THEMES. BUGS
