I have been trying to replace Unity with Cairo Dock, and I am almost there! The only question I have is how can I turn off the Cairo Dock Auto Hide, so as to fix it in place no matter what?

I may be preaching to the converted but here goes:

Right click on Cairo, select Cairo Dock > Configure

On the Configuration>Behaviour tab:

  • Visibility: Keep the dock below
  • Visibility: Appear on mouseover.
  • Behaviour of Taskbar: integrated or separated depending on what you prefer.

Click apply and close.

Click the Applications menu, find Startup Applications.
