[SOLVED] Adding apps to dock

Post by kawika555 » Mon Feb 25, 2019 12:00 am

I'm using Xfce desktop and I have been looking for a way to add more programs to the dock. I thought that once you open a program it adds an icon to the dock and then you right click and select add to dock. but it doens't do that. How is this done. Thanks

Did a search in forum and nothing came up.

Run an application and the icon comes in plank.
Right mouse click and the icon can be fixed to plank.

If that is the dock we are speaking of.

Make sure we are talking about the same "dock"
Which application do you want to pin there?

It's the dock/plank that comes with the new version 19.1 with Xfce. When opening programs they weren't showing up on the dock so you couldn't right click to keep on dock. Maybe its a buggy dock?

Nothing buggy.

Tell me what app you are launching.

After booting up again the dock is adding apps to it once they open. Then I can Keep in Dock. It was hung up before and wasn't working properly. Now it is.

Arco Linux is quite impressive overall. I've use many distros and this one rocks! :)

I guess it is solved then.

If you do SKEL you will also change your plank to the original settings!!
