Once I'm adding application launcher onto unity dock I expect it will be there as long as I want, but after the system restarted they're just disappeared.

What may cause the problem or what should I do to achieve my launchers to be in there?

Have you right-clicked on the launcher and ticked "keep in dock"? – N.N. Jun 15 '11 at 14:08
@N.N. Yes I did, but the same happens – sultan Jun 15 '11 at 14:19
I also want to get rid off LibreOffice launchers and they return back on restart – sultan Jun 15 '11 at 14:21
Maybe you have this problem?… – Jorge Castro Jun 15 '11 at 14:33

How do you add a launcher! Run a application and right click on icon and select keep in launcher. If you are doing right but getting problem then

unity --reset

Now add launcher according above process, restart and check.
