To my dismay, after installing Fedora 12, I soon realized that the famous “Docky” theme for Gnome-Do did not come stock. After some poking around their forums I saw that there was some legal issue between Gnome-Do and Apple. Blah blah blah, I have no time for Apple’s whining and pouting. They’re interfering with my FOSS-time. One person made it clear that even though this feature has been removed from the Fedora repos, you can always install Gnome-Do from source. Ha! What a noble idea, I thought to myself. I’ve gotten so used to repos and RPMs that I haven’t had to install anything from source in quite some time. Well- that alternative install method works and I jotted it down for ya’.
Quickly; just wanted to help promote this blog post. If you have Gnome and you’re running Compiz and you’ve notice a very weird graphical glitch when running Virtualbox in Seamless mode, then here’s the workaround for you! The blog post is by Rick Fleming.
I tried it and it works. It wasn’t extremely easy to understand though. At first, I didn’t know where the .exe file was. You can find the executable file in “VBoxWorkaround\obj\Release\VBoxWorkaround.exe”. Create a shortcut and put it in your “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup” folder.
