How to Install Docky in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick)


What Is Docky?
Docky is an advanced shortcut bar that sits at the bottom, top, and/or sides of your screen. It provides easy access to some of the files, folders, and applications on your computer, displays which applications are currently running, holds windows in their minimised state, and more.

To install Docky from a terminal, use the commands below

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:docky-core/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docky

Docky will be added under Accessories in the Applications menu.

When you first launch Docky you will get a pretty simple dock on the bottom of your screen. You can drag and drop your application icons to rearrange them, and drag applications from the applications menu to Docky to add them. Pull an icon from Docky out and it will disappear in a puff of smoke.
Click on the blue Docky logo to open the configuration window. While this window is open, you can click and drag to reposition the dock. You can manage multiple docks with the “New Dock” and “Delete Dock” buttons. Click a dock to select and configure it, the current dock will glow blue.
You can choose between themes and hiding modes, as well as change the icon and zoom sizes. Be sure to check out the 3D background mode, which can also be combined with any theme for a different look. Also, the intellihide hiding mode only hides the dock when the current window would be obscured by the dock.

Hi,

Thanks for sharing but it's better to put things like this in the Linux Tutorials section or on the LQ Wiki, not in a forum in my opinion. Off the Zero Reply List.

Kind regards,

Eric
