Need help removing Cairo-dock message at startup

"A message at startup?

This is because you do not “force” a specific mode (OpenGL or Cairo backend). Then use the command Cairo-dock -c (libcairo2) or Cairo-dock -o (OpenGL)."

As seen above, I couldn’t fix that and make that message go away. Any advice is highly appreciated. Newbie here. thanks!

I’ve been using cairo-dock for years but not sure if i can help, do you have cairo-dock-plug-ins installed ?

Yes, it’s installed. Also, just double checked by doing the following commands:
“sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cairo-dock-team/ppa sudo apt-get update”
“sudo apt-get dist-upgrade”
“sudo apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins”
“sudo -v”
“echo “deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/glxdock/repository/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) cairo-dock ## Cairo-Dock-Stable” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list wget -q http://download.tuxfamily.org/glxdock/repository/cairo-dock.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins # OR if it’s already installed => # sudo apt-get dist-upgrade”
one by one. However, I’m still getting this message at startup–“Use OpenGl in Cairo-dock…”

Edit the desktop file and add a “-c” to the end of the exec= line.

Whoa. Add-apt? PPA? I’m lost.

Also I don’t think Cairo has has an update in forever. I’d go for plank. And from Arch, not debian based stuff.

what distro are you running??

apt and debs don’t work on :enos:

This is an Arch based distro. apt commands are meant for ubuntu based distro’s. :astonished:

Are you using Endeavour OS? apt isn’t the package manager used on Arch Linux distributions, which instead use pacman (although I can see there is the aur/apt package :sweat_smile:).

try to start from terminal . and pass on the command

I think this defeats the purpose of learning pacman commands. :face_with_diagonal_mouth:
