Dock Gnome Extension on Bottom (Gnome 3.4) by xeXpanderx Dock Gnome Extension on Bottom (Gnome 3.4) by xeXpanderx
A new modified version of the dock gnome extension by gcampax [link] The dock is now set on bottom as default, which was the purpose of the modification, i.e. I modified it to get it on bottom and nothing else. Hope you find it as useful as I do!

It works on Gnome 3.4.x. Tested on Fedora 17.

-- How to change the icon size --
If you need to change the size of your icons, you use gsettings tool. For example, if you want to change to size 42 you type this in terminal:

gsettings --schemadir $HOME/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/dock@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com/schemas set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dock size 42

For the record: apparently, it is possible to turn autohide on/off through gsettings.

gsettings --schemadir $HOME/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/dock@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com/schemas set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dock autohide false

Just what I was looking for, thanks a bunch!


(I still have to tweak it, so it won't autohide :) )

Thanks a lot! :)

There is a file called "stylesheet.css" located at ~/.local/extensions/dock@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com/stylesheet.css. There you can change the css-style of your extension. Here is an example where the background and the border is transparent:

#dock {
border-radius: 9px;
background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.4);
border-width: 2px;
border-color: rgba(39,82,102,0.8)
}

.dock-menu {
font-size: 12px
}

You change the transparent by changing the last number in the rgba function. In this example the background has 0.4 and the border 0.8.

Hey, nice work, however I'm having an issue with it just spawning on top, gnome-shell-extensions-prefs doesn't pick it up, and the USER SECTION is gone so I can't edit it to spawn on bottom (currently spawns on top)
Any ideas?

This is nice. Tested and works on Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome Shell 3.4.1.

Do you know how i can make the icons bigger? It's quite small on my 42 inch screen :(

Hi, launch a terminal and type this:

gsettings --schemadir $HOME/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/dock@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com/schemas set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dock size YOURSIZE

So, for example, if you need size 42:

gsettings --schemadir $HOME/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/dock@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com/schemas set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dock size 42
