Many of you will have a dock installed on your desktop, many others will be wondering what it is or how I can put ‘that‘On my desk. Well, today I bring you a manual on how to install DockBarX on your Xubuntu or Xfce desktop, For those who do not use Xubuntu.
DockBarX is a dock that we already discussed in this blog that looks similar to the Windows 7 startup bar. What’s more, many use this dock to give it a more similar appearance Windows 7.
A version for Xfce of this dock, With which we can have a custom dock and easy to use for ours Xubuntu.
How to Install DockBarX on Xfce
DockBarX is not in the official repositories so we will have to use our friend the terminal, open it and write:
its add-apt-ppa repositories: nilarimogard / webupd8-i
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install – no-install-recommends xfce4-dockbarx-plugin-i
After that the installation and configuration of ours will begin DockBarX, Now we only have to restart our session or our computer, either of the two options, as this will restart all the options and settings of our desktop giving a better and greater functionality to our DockBarX next our Xfce. Some users do not see the dock after installation and reboot, for this all we have to do is go to “configuration“In the Menu and look for the Panel option. In the window that pages us this option is activated we will have to choose the option”add“And we will add one DockBarX panel with which the dock will already appear to us. The issue is very simple, many docks are basic desktop panels that are modified to give a dock appearance, this allows for greater lightness to the dock and the system. DockBarX is one of them, though so is the dock carrying Xubuntu or Xfce.
If after handling this dock, you feel like something is missing, I recommend you add extras, especially to improve the look of usability. To install it, we opened the terminal and wrote:
sudo apt-get install dockbarx-themes-extra
sudo apt-get install zeitgeist dockmanager dockmanager-daemon libdesktop-Agnostic-cfg-gconf libdesktop-Agnostic-vfs-legi
Remember, for those you don’t use Xfce that there is also a version for Ubuntu that we discussed some time ago in this blog.
