My problem is as follows

  1. I use cairo dock as a replacement for the Unity Launcher on Ubuntu
  2. I used chrome desktop shortcuts to make some pseudo desktop apps of some webapps (like outlook exchange)
  3. I want these webapps to pick up the Icon I give them, the Unity launcher picks up the icon I allocate to it, minimizing and clicking on the icon reopens the existing window
  4. But on Cairo dock clicking the icon opens a chrome window and clicking on the icon again opens a new chrome window instead of briging the open one into focus

Can anyone give me some pointers on how to emulate unity launcher's behaviour with cairo dock?

  • I'm running into this same issue. Did you ever find a solution? – Bryan Dec 3 '15 at 1:11
  • Nope, I just ditched cairo-dock – Srini Feb 16 '16 at 23:03
  • What did you use as a replacement that doesn't have the same issue? – Bryan Mar 8 '16 at 23:53
  • The stock unity launcher :( – Srini Mar 11 '16 at 21:02
  • @Bryan have you ever tried JWM? – Aquarius Power Apr 9 '17 at 19:20

you can use an existent icon of the launcher. In example, i used Firefox launcher, right click on icon and changed his settings. I downloaded google chrome icon from internet in PNG format, then i put it into launcher config.
