Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Docky is an application launcher similar to the one on Mac OS X. Also, it provides a bunch of docklets for displaying the weather report, clock and CPU usage, somehow similar to AWN and cairo-dock.
The latest version available is Docky 3.0, which has been recently released, coming with changes and features.
In this article I will show you how to install Docky 3.0 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Docky 3.0 on Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 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 docky package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz/docky
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install docky
Optional, to remove docky, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove docky
