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.
Funktional & Simpel.
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
Has a bug that after initial load up, when log out, log back in lose functionality in mint 19.
Simple, convenient and inherits best macOS dock features! Way to go!
No settings and doesn't uninstall properly, was still running after removing, still have a defunct process running from it.
Отличная штука, не представляю рабочего стола без нее
Simple et efficace
Two issues: 1. Can't drag and drop a project folder on apps, say, Atom. 2. On Cinnamon, terminal launched using universal keyboard shortcut is shown separate from the one pinned on the dock. On the plus side, really clean and lightweight. IntelliHide is a great behavioral feature.
