Elegant, simple, clean dock
  20 reviews

Plank is a dock enabling you to start applications and manage your windows.

Plank is meant to be the simplest dock on the planet. The goal is to provide just what a dock needs and absolutely nothing more. It is, however, a library which can be extended to create other dock programs with more advanced features.

Really great program, simple dock and smooth performance! I do wish it had a few features like 1. Easily changing dock items icons 2. Having a built in separator widget for organization 3. when I right click the dock anywhere there should be a dock settings option listed, ctrl+right click is ok but not as apparent as right click context menu options. Ctrl+Right click menu suddenly just stopped working, making settings unreachable.

Excelente, apenas o docklet applications deveria reagir ao click com o botão esquerdo e não ao direito, e pra quem não sabe como configurar basta segurar Ctrl e clique com o botão direito para acessar as configurações do plank

Amo essa dock, fácil de customizar e utilizar. Alem de ser leve.

It would've been nice if it didn't mess with my audio :( Otherwise, it looked cool. Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon, 5.11 kernel, AMD Ryzen 5 5500U

It's a couple of years now that I use it and I found it the best: attractive, functional and easy to use. And as a plus no annoing bugs or problems.

I've been a Mint user and lover since about Mint 14, now on 20. From the beginning years ago I used and relied on Cairo. Sadly I found Cairo buggy and hard to set up, not the least bit intuitive. Over time I found a number of bugs, vibrating dock, need for reboots. When I finally and recently downloaded Mint 20 (which I love) I decided it was time to change to a simpler but still attractive dock. Both practical and fun - this would be Plank. I can honestly say after having used Plank for some time now, that I could not be more pleased. Simple, bulletproof, fun and attractive. I love the way programs are automatically added as you use them, to appear on the Plank dock, and allowing me to keep them there permanently. In this way you are creating your own custom dock based on your actual current usage. This is easy, fast and entirely intuitive and effective. Great program, you must try it.

Its simple, but delivers! It's the only one (that i tryed) that worked with Wine Applications (MS WORD, in m y case). Cairo would not fix an icon and Docky fixed an icon, ..., but it didn't work... Plank was the one that worked with Wine and Windows apps.

This apps conflict with nvidia-440, cause after login go to black screen for awhile before load desktop. (Ulyana)

Not as good as Docky (in my opinion), but still fairly capable.

Its the best Dock software for linux, I loved it. Its simple, light weight. Perfect for customizing your desktop. I am using it in Linux Mint 19.3 and everything is working so smooth and till now. I wish if they can allow users to install some themes. That will be like cherry on the top.

Works perfectly on Linux Mint 19.2, looks great, easy to use. Doesnt have many functions, but then again that's what makes it so easy to use.

It only gets 3* because #1 there's no way to add an applet to work as an Applications Launcher/System Menu by myself, I have to rely on other people's themes to do that; #2 intellihide needs a lot of improvement, it keeps on showing up when it shouldn't (ie when using Steam in fullscreen mode and hovering over STORE makes Plank show up); #3 If you're on Linux Mint, try logging out of your account, then log back in. For some reason, Plank takes much longer to show upon logging back in to my session than it does after my machine is done booting up. Devs, please update this application.

Nice, flexible dock. For those having trouble with settings for plank, press CTRL + right click anywhere within the plank.

Nice software; remember that for settings you simply need to execute plank --preferences
