A dock for the Gnome Shell. This extension moves the dash out of the overview transforming it in a dock for an easier launching of applications and a faster switching between windows and desktops. (by micheleg)

    My guess would be not many... I know for a fact that at least in my workplace, where most/all dev boxes are running some form of Ubuntu LTS, most of my colleagues who run GNOME are either running Ubuntu's standard desktop (which features a custom version of the Dash to Dock extension) or customize it with the Dash to Panel extension, both of which (but specially the latter) completely ditch GNOME's "intended" workflow and replace it with something much closer to the traditional Desktop workflow.
  • Added Bluetooth Quick Toggle Functionality to the quick-settings Extension from Florian Müllner by adding code from the extension gnome-bluetooth-quick-connect from bjarosze. All code is theirs, I just moved stuff around really. Maybe added a line or 2.

    First up, you go and install ubuntu-dock (https://github.com/micheleg/dash-to-dock/tree/ubuntu-dock), just follow the first commands, next up go to extensions and change the dash-to-dock to panel mode, set it to the left side of the screen. Next go to the launchers (still in the dash to dock settings) and set show trashcan off. Next go to appereance (also still in the dash to dock settings). Disable built in theme, enable: shrink the dash, customize the dash color (set it to black) & show overview on startup. Set customize window counters.... to default. Next set customize opacity to fixed, and set the opacity to 70%. That's it for the dock. Now install Blur my shell (https://github.com/aunetx/blur-my-shell), & "AppIndicator and KStatusNotifierItemSupport" (https://github.com/ubuntu/gnome-shell-extension-appindicator), All you need to do is set the background to the default ubuntu wallpaper, change the icon theme and that's it.

    I'm using the dash-to-dock extension. Keep in mind that you have to install it directly from the github page https://github.com/micheleg/dash-to-dock . The version that's on the gnome extensions website is not compatible with Gnome 42.

  • Stop GNOME extension from "updating"
    2 projects | /r/linuxquestions | 11 Jul 2022
    I'm on Fedora 36 with the GNOME 42 DE. For the past few weeks I've been using this dash-to-dock extension that I installed from here https://github.com/micheleg/dash-to-dock. Everything has been running well, up until a few days ago. when I got a notifications that the system has found an update for this extension and the update will be installed on the next log in. Then on the next login the dash-to-dock extension automatically updates and stops working (it says that it is incompatible now?!).
