Brand new fresh install of Deepin 2014.  Using default video driver (nouveau).  Upon fresh boot dock is nowhere to been seen.  If I logout then login, there it is and then works fine.  
It does this every time.

I installed Nvidia and things just got worse..  Blank desktop with just wallpaper.  Hot corners did not work (I read this is a know issue), no dock.  Reverted to Nouveau.
Hope to find a fix for this as it looks to be a very promising distro otherwise.. ;)

Searching the net it seems I am not the only one with this problem (Arch) ... 9#p1421949
@rAX: thank you, it turned out that openGL wans't running.
Though I still can't get dde-dock to work, it's just not visible when booting into DDE (but still running as a process). When I kill it and restart it, it gives me zero terminal output so I've got no idea where to look for problems...
@Archer1X: why are you using compiz-mate? Did you have problems using compiz-ubuntu?

If I cant find a solution I will just remove it (dde-dock) and try Plank dock.. :?

Nvidia  installed in our OS will cause QT5 program errors (Deepin Control Centre), but dock problem maybe be caused by others, please tell us what other steps you did?
