docker - System tray for KDE3/GNOME2 docklet applications


docker [options]


This manual page documents briefly the docker command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

docker is a docking application (WindowMaker dock app) which acts as a system tray for KDE3 and GNOME2. It can be used to replace the panel in either environment, allowing you to have a system tray without running the KDE/GNOME panel.

Docker was written and designed to work with Openbox 2, but it should work fine in any window manager that supports WindowMaker dock apps.
