Is there any way to have the MATE panel applet?

Thanks. That did the trick.

Also can be fixed by changing line "s = im.tostring('raw', 'BGRA')" to "s = im.tobytes('raw', 'BGRA')" in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dockbarx/ That's dirty fix, I know.

Won't load after python2-pillow upgrade:
python2-pillow (2.9.0-2 -> 3.0.0-1)
Downgrade fixes for now.

I read about graphical issues with transparent icons. I have the same issue. How can it be fixed? Should I really switch to python2-imaging? Any help would be appreciated.

NOTE regarding PKGBUILD 0.91-1:

DockbarX v0.91 uses /usr/bin/python2 to interpret it's files by default. This change is rendering the sed substitution changing the interpreter for dockx, dockbarx_factory and dbx_preference in package() obsolete as it changes the interpreter from /usr/bin/python2 to /usr/bin/python22 which is not what you want.

I also encounter @hthntts's error, but only when running dockx as a regular user. Root can run it just fine.

Currently for me there's graphical issues with icons that have transparency unless i use python2-imaging rather than python2-pillow

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/dockx", line 36, in <module>
from Xlib import display
ImportError: No module named Xlib

And I have python2-xlib installed.

I've created a patch and updated the PKGBUILD, also made a src.tar.gz from both.

You can grab the src.tar.gz from

It contains the patch image_pillow.patch and new PKGBUILD.

For all xfce4-dockbarx-plugin users. You need to reload the panel after patching the dockbarx. Just reboot or perform
