It's NOT a bug in Docky or Lubuntu, that is caused by standard LXDE (and therefore Lubuntu) not having a compositor by default .. it's one of the reasons we moved to the xfwm4 window manager in Peppermint 4

Peppermint 5 (like Peppermint 4) will have a compositor by default, so Docky and Cairo-dock should "just work".

This is a great example of how different Peppermint is from Lubuntu though.  We've got spoiled using Peppermint's spin of LXDE   ;).

I tell everybody Peppermint (and Ubuntu Unity -- if you have a sufficiently powerful computer for it, and you take that new Amazon feature out of Ubuntu Unity too) are the two best Linux distros in existence for out-of-the-box workablity).  I prefer Peppermint, but I like the full, long term support of the Ubuntu distributions.

Ubuntu Unity is like a Rolls Royce, and Peppermint OS is like a Ferrari -- both are gorgeous in their own ways.

I know a lot of people put down Ubuntu, but, really, where would we be in Peppermint without Ubuntu?  It's like it's the father, or grandfather, of Peppermint -- depending on how you look at it.

I went to the Lubuntu forum and I ran a sudo command -- thinking I was composting Lubuntu.  I probably did something wrong.  I was an old highly recommended command, but for an older version of Lubuntu. 

People, my knowledge of Linux s sophomoric at best.  I consider myself a newbie.   I still have an awfully lot to learn yet.  All I know is that I love this stuff.

Thank you for the insight.

PCNetSpec,

Wow!  I can't believe such a link even exists.

I ended up putting Xubuntu on my friend's old XP computer, as a temporary fix, because of this problem.  I made Xubuntu quite workable, but it seems to be using too much memory, in my opinion.  And my friend's old computer doesn't have that much memory to spare. 

I'd prefer to use an L XDE desktop -- Peppermint's preferably, of course!

Thank you very much, PCNetSpec.
