Install ‘Docky’ on Ubuntu 20.04+

Docky is a Linux application that provides a dock for applications you’d frequently use. It’s no longer in the default repositories. This is how you install Docky on newer versions of Ubuntu. 

First, open your terminal.

[code]cd Downloads && mkdir tmp && cd tmp[/code]

Next, you’ll need Docky’s dependencies:

[code]wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/gnome-sharp2/libgconf2.0-cil_2.24.2-4_all.deb
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/glibc/multiarch-support_2.27-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/libg/libgnome-keyring/libgnome-keyring-common_3.12.0-1build1_all.deb
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/libg/libgnome-keyring/libgnome-keyring0_3.12.0-1build1_amd64.deb
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/gnome-keyring-sharp/libgnome-keyring1.0-cil_1.0.0-5_amd64.deb[/code]

Now, let’s install them all at once:

[code]sudo apt-get install ./*.deb[/code]

Alright, you’ve now taken care of the dependencies. Let’s grab the Docky .deb:

[code]wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/d/docky/docky_2.2.1.1-1_all.deb[/code]

And, of course, you can now install it:

[code]sudo apt-get install ./docky_2.2.1.1-1_all.deb[/code]

There. You now have a running/working Docky and you can customize it and use it just like you did on older versions of Ubuntu. This should, of course, work with all official flavors of Ubuntu and with those distros that base themselves on Ubuntu’s 20.04+ version.
