Nobody's going to be able to answer this unless you mention which dock you're using (Peppermint doesn't come with a dock by default). :)

Hi iamesperambient, the quick answer is no.  There is a bug that is stopping it from working .  I thought it was fixed about a week ago but it proved to be still not working.  It worked find in PM4.  Lets hope one of the updates fixes it because it is really useful.  I hope this helps  ;).

to my computer on the top panel and than other applications like gimp, recording stuff, corrent client, vlc etc kind of stuff
on my dock. its just how i want to organize it no worries hopefuly it gets fixed though in time.

Do you mean the icon on your dock launches the same app as if you go to

menu > Accessories > Search for Files...

?



If so, add an "Application Launcher Bar" panel applet to your top panel .. then add "Search for Files..." to the Application Launcher Bar panel applet.

it *IS* in the list.

Right-click the top panel .. select "Panel Settings" .. select the "Panel Applets" (tab) .. highlight the "Application Launch Bar" plugin, and click the "Edit" button.

In the right-hand list of apps, clicl the little triangle next to "Accessories" .. click the "Search for Files..." app .. click the "Add" button.

Hi iamesperambient, I've just had another look at the panel applet, Directory Menu and it is working again.  My "fix in update wish" must have come true  8).  If you are still interested.  Right click on the panel you wish the applet to appear in.  Select Panel Settings.  Click on +Add and select, Directory Menu.  Use the Up and Down buttons in the right hand panel of the Panel Preferences window to place the applet.  Click on Close when finished. This has pleased me because I find this applet really useful.  I hope this helps  ;)!
