Daily Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

DockBarX, a taskbar with grouping and group manipulation which works with both the GNOME Panel and Avant Window Navigator, reached version 0.39.4. The new version brings some WINE fixes: better pin and it now recognizes WINE application launchers automatically.

Another change in DockBarX 0.39.4 is the complete redesign of the preferences dialog which now takes less space so it's a lot more usable on a netbook.

Starting with this version, we won't support DockBarX in the WebUpd8 PPA - until now we did this because the official DockBarX PPA didn't package it for Karmic users but unfortunately the latest version doesn't work on Karmic (I have no idea why) thus packaging it ourself became useless.

Install DockBarX 0.39.4 (Ubuntu Lucid only!):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dockbar-main/ppa && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dockbarx


The DockBarX PPA now also provides a package of some amazing extra themes you can install using the following command:
sudo apt-get install dockbarx-themes-extra



To install DockBarX in Avant Window Navigator, see THIS post.
