Cairo-Dock is an animated application launch bar for the desktop, comparable to the dock in Mac OS X or Rocket Dock (for Windows). Now, you can use Cairo-Dock with OpenGL (to use your graphic card!).
It is compatible with Compiz-Fusion, Beryl, Compiz and Xcompmgr, but it can also run without a composite manager (using fake transparency). Cairo-Dock can run under GNOME, KDE and XFCE.

Install Cairo-Dock in debian

First you need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list file

#vi /etc/apt/sources.list

add the following line

deb http://repository.cairo-dock.org/debian stable cairo-dock

Save and exit the file

Now install GPG key

#wget -q http://repository.cairo-dock.org/cairo-dock.gpg -O- | apt-key add --

Update source list

#apt-get update

Install Cairo-Dock

#apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins

Now you can launch cairo-dock from Applications ---> System tools---> cairo-Dock
