HiQDock ... New Dock coming soon


#41

Thanks for the error message, i will take a look at the evening.


#42

Thre is a ticket in Trac for that already. It is a recent regression.


#43

Great work so far. I was able to download it from Haiku Depot and get it running on x86_gcc2 without any issues. Still some graphical glitches here and there but overall the look is very slick. Thank you to all that made this happen! Been waiting a long time for this one.


#44

It seems, your repo is not source of problems. I just added other repos and I had same crashes by just selecting.


#45

I know this problem. I have the same here on my system. You need to wait till all packages are loaded (he refresh in the middle).


#46

@hey68you, I’m available for testing on R1B1, baremetal.


#47

Would also like to try this dock. Couldn’t add repository, got a bad data response. Waiting patiently.


#48

Hey @lelldorin if you need help getting this up and running on x86_64 let me know. I couldn’t find the recipe for some reason… If you let me know where I can get the sources and recipe, then I’ll take a look this weekend.


#49

We does mit the developer, watch out for hey68you in the forum now


#50

Afaik it is closed source freeware. Better to say hey68you had problems updating it to qt5 in the las 4-5 years, but never published any code to get help, so i assume it is closed source.


#51

Yes for now HiQDock it’s still closed source - I will have to try to recompile on a x86_64…


#52

Sooooo… Anyone up for creating this from scratch as an open source project? :wink:


#53

I plan to open it in the near future ---- I was hoping that Haiku would first add window transparency (but doesn’t look that’s on anyone’s radar as of now) first which would then require a really big change in my dock code.


#54

Try the LaunchBar it have nice “hidden” features, and it is opensource, and included in Haiku.


#55

You mean “LaunchBox”? That’s quite a different kind of app, innit?


#56

Thats what i mean :slight_smile:


#57

If you open it now people can lend you a hand :wink:


#58

Thanks to help from Stefano on the haiku-development freelist, my HiQDock is now compiling and running on x86_64… HOWEVER, the fake transparent background (i.e. screen shot ) is not working yet. I’m investigating now…


#59

Thank the Good Lord Above - COMPILING and WORKING fine now on x86_64 beta1 !!!

Who wants to take my binary and do the packaging stuff :slight_smile: ?


#60

Send it to me :slight_smile:
