Alternative to Dash to Dock

Post by Eminent2021 » 2020/04/17 17:56:42

Hi,
Is there any alternative tool or way to Dash to Dock for GNOME DE? I want to pin "Activities" programs to the desktop. I don't want to use Dash to Dock. Thanks

Hello
not entirely sure I get what you mean, but if you enable "window list" in gnome-tweaks you'll have another bar/panel at the bottom of the screen with all the open programs like in the olden days, you'll have to have the panel at the top though as the window list bar can only go at the bottom, you can also enable "frippery panel favorites" which puts your faves in the main panel.
Alternatively install dash-to-panel https://github.com/home-sweet-gnome/dash-to-panel (download https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/ ... -to-panel/) it looks like win10 panel where running apps have a line under them and there is a preview if you hover the mouse over an open app, there are hundreds of configurable options.

I don't know what "GNOME DE" is, but I use Dash to Dock With CentOS 7. To install it I ran this (as root):

Code: Select all

yum install gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock
