The Cairo-Dock is showing only on the first workspace. How can I enable it in other worksapces?

Check if you're switching between workspaces or desktops? It's different and if you're using Compiz, you should only use one desktop with several workspaces. (you can change these settings by opening the Compiz Config Settings Manager in the General section

enter image description here

set number of Desktops to 1.

checkout launchpad and install a stable version perhaps. I'll get back to you soon. – Olu Feb 15 '14 at 9:14
