Hi linuxuser2342, that looks splendid.  You know, I can't understand people who moan about the default theming of a distro.  If you don't like it, do something like this and make the distro yours - very well done :D!!

Thanks, I think it's nice to show people, especially newbies, how easy it is to make Peppermint your own.  I encourage everyone to submit their creations.  This way, people can see the endless possibilities and get inspired  ;).

Hi spiegel, welcome to the Peppermint Forum  8).  That looks like the Docky dock.  To install it, open a terminal window with the following keystrokes, Ctrl+Alt+t.  Copy and paste the following command into the terminal:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install docky
Hit enter and follow the on screen instructions.  To launch Docky, navigate to: menu > Accessories > Docky.  You can have Docky autostart by clicking on the anchor icon on the left hand side of Docky and selecting under General Options, Start When User Logs In.  To add items to Docky, just drag and drop the items from the menu or from: ~/.local/share/applications.  That's it - have fun  ;).

Hello spiegel For the dock I am using Plank. You can install it using synaptic or terminal with Sudo apt-get install plank 

*If you want to have it on start up open up default applications and the autostart tab and click add and type in plank and add again.

Sorry about that, they both look so similar, it was a coin toss  :-[.

Hey AndyinMokum no big deal. You are correct it is a toss up. Both great docs though.

Plank is a little bit lighter and really nice on older or lower spec machines.  I use both and you're correct, they're both great docks for sure  ;D.

I agree. I'm going to change the look of mine once every couple of weeks and post on here.
