I use the latest Docky for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise. Sometimes it gives me this error:

enter image description here

I think it happens when I try to edit the Main Menu and use Synaptic. I'm not sure. Docky is set up to be hidden on a window doge.

Please give me a patch or a stable version of Docky. Thanks!

when you do ps -ef | grep docky. Do you see the process still running? – devav2 Oct 10 '12 at 11:57
Well, sometimes it does run, but not visible or it's out of my screen (determined by TOP command). Other times it's not running. I'll hit your command when it happens again. – Naveen Oct 10 '12 at 12:15
This should be reported as a bug. You can make Apport collect and submit the necessary technical information--but still make sure to read the bug reporting documentation first, and describe the problem thoroughly in the bug report you write in the web browser (which will come up automatically after Apport sends the data). – Eliah Kagan Oct 11 '12 at 11:34

The latest stable package of Docky is already available at ppa:docky-core/stable. I'd recommend the following (because, maybe the package was corrupted):

  • Remove existing Docky.
  • Add the stable PPA
  • Update software list
  • Install Docky from the PPA

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:docky-core
    sudo apt-get remove docky
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install docky

Ok.... the PPA thing worked! – Naveen Oct 13 '12 at 4:13
