In this tutorial I will show you, how to install Plank 0.11.4 on Ubuntu server.
As you may know, Plank is the default dock app on Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, but it can be easily installed on other Ubuntu based systems, enabling the users to place their favorite apps in the dock, for an easier usage.
The latest version available is Plank 0.11.4, which has been released a while ago, bringing the below changes:
- Fix underscores not being shown in some menu items (LP: #1662968)
- Make window-manager aware that empty-trash dialog is part of plank (LP: #1652653)
- Fix build with -Werror=pointer-to-int-cast, -Werror=format, -Werror=implicit-function-declaration
- Generate manpage with help2man
- Update appdata
- Update translations
Because it is available via the PPA, installing Plank on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak, Linux Mint 18.x, Linux Mint 17.x and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the plank package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz/docky
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install plank
Optional, to remove plank, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove plank
