[SOLVED] Docky creates an annoying transparent line in Xfce4

I installed and configured Docky in Xfce4, but I get a light, transparent line when running it.
How can I remove it?

Ok, I found out that I had to disable dock shadows in the compositor settings...

Re: [SOLVED] Docky creates an annoying transparent line in Xfce4

I know this is old but I've been trying to find a solution to this problem without disabling the other dock shadows so I'm going to ad my .02

Install wmctrl

     # pacman -S wmctrl

Create a script. (I created docky.sh in ~/.bin but the script can really be anywhere you want)

     #!/bin/bash
     sh -c "sleep 3 && command"
     wmctrl -r docky -b toggle,below
     sleep .5
     xfwm4 --daemon --replace

Make scrip executable.

     # chmod x+ ~/.bin/docky.sh

Then add script to start.

The xfwm4 --daemon --replace will cause the screen to flicker at login due to the refresh but it will get rid of the docky shadow.

I added sleep commands because I was using a SSD and start timings are quick but you might be able to remove them or tweak them to get it correct.
