Package is updated to the new python3 / GTK3 port. Please read the configuration migration instructions to migrate your settings from 0.93 (from the README at

Window previews work on all display managers now, not just compiz.

If you are using dockbarx as an xfce4-panel plugin, be sure to update xfce4-dockbarx-plugin as well.

Why i cant modify the source code, i mean, i download the package by typing makepkg -o to add new themes to the package but i don't see it the theme list, or if i modify the to decrease the icon size it seams to have no effect when i run the program.

in the git version i can do it, but not in this one

Got an error importing imp module after system update on Manjaro. Seems that it's a standard module which was removed in python 3.12 (at least I see it in the docs for 3.11 and prior versions and don't see for 3.12).

dockbarx-git package runs fine on python 3.12.

If you completely remove dockbarx and other dockbarx stuff like dockbarx-xfce4 than reinstall it after letting python-polib rebuilt than reinstall dockbarx it will all work again but still really inconvenient and annoying.

Completely broke after the latest update and won't build either.

When you try and run it, you get this error.

@kzoli429: my guess is you updated to python 3.9 that was just added to extra but have a python-polib installed on your system that was built against python 3.8 so the module is not being found. Rebuild and reinstall python-polib and try again.

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.8 to see what packages need to be rebuilt.

@kzoli429 I had the same issue, install python polib module and use "" repo - worked for me.

dockbarx disappeared from xfce panel and cannot be reinstalled after the latest (python?) update, i.e. python 3.9.0-1: ==> Starting package()... Traceback (most recent call last): File "/tmp/makepkg/dockbarx/src/dockbarx/", line 26, in <module> import polib ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'polib' ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... error making: dockbarx
