I just installed cairo-dock and was changing some settings. I tried to change the theme to Mac OS X, which I placed in ~/.config/cairo-dock/themes/Mac OS X/ after which my cairo dock doesn't display at all. I have been using it in OpenGL mode, changing it to non-OpenGL doesn't seem to help (same problem). I have tried removing the package configs (using ubuntu tweak) and then reinstalled cairo-dock and cairo-dock-plug-ins, and restarted several times but still, when I start cairo-dock - same problem again. When I start cairo dock, this is what displays on my desktop (instead of showing the dock). How can I make it work?
This is how my dock looks:
Notice the little line inside the red ellipse? That's the dock. No icons or anything. Click also doesn't work.
This is what it shows when I run cairo-dock from terminal. I have removed bunch of Gtk warnings before this verbose for simplicity.

Note: I don't know where that "jared" came from. Thanks in advance!
