dock for #! statler

hey guys.

i'd like to use a dock, like docky, awn, or cairo dock.
but what i want even more is a fast and light weight OS.

now, i installed docky, cause that seemed to fit my needs. but it says it needs a composite manager...
if i want to install awn, it takes a lot of dependencies with it, even nautilus is there.... !

so, what can i do to get a dock AND keep the system light weight ?
if possible, i'd like to use docky...

#! has a composite manager installed - xcompmgr, it won't use up much resources. You should be able to turn it on and off via the menu.

I think many use xcompmgr as composite manager, though I do not use any. There is also another one, damn I cannot figure out the name, someone else sure will do.

If you still want AWN what indeed is a bit more heavy maybe try to install it this way:

apt-get --no-install-recommends install <package> 

That will assure to not pull all recommended packages you might not need but still I would go rather with a lighter dock and install a composite manager.

There is also Cairo compmgr, which has a few more fancy effects.
