You can change the Cairo-dock configuration to match your need. I like the default display but may be you don’t. Configuration menu can be accessed by doing right click on the Cairo dock then select ‘Configure’ menu.
PART 1. SYSTEM
Configuration 1: Position on Screen
The default is bottom. You may change to Right, Left or Top. I’ve tried to change it to right, but it’s didn’t work. It moved to right but I can’t access it. May be, it’s be caused my screen resolution.
Configuration 3. TaskBar
When you enable it, it will show the current application (running) in the dock. You can go directly to your application when you click the current application icons. It will help you when you open few applications. But for me, I prefer to disable it.
Configuration 4. Accessories.
There are 5 accessories that you can choose. Weather, Cairo-Penguin, Wife, Terminal and Power Manager. If you don’t need, don’t use it. Because it will consume your memory.
Configuration 5: Functions
There are 11 functions that you can use. These are Shortcut, rendering, Log out, systray, gnome integration old, dust bin, dbus, compiz-icon, Show desklets, Show desktop and Xgamma. Like I said, if you don’t need it, don’t use it.
