I would like to have icons in the MATE desktop environment panel for all open applications. Found a solution located in the PPA webupd8team/mate called mate-dock-applet. I use 18.04. When trying to add the repo I get an error though:

HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Cannot add PPA: ''This PPA does not support bionic''.

Is there any other way to install mate-dock-applet in 18.04 or is there anything similar?

Currently I'm running Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS. It has this package in the universe repository.

MATE Dock Applet

It is also available in all other Ubuntu versions:

$ rmadison mate-dock-applet
 mate-dock-applet | 0.70-1build1 | xenial/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, powerpc, ppc64el, s390x
 mate-dock-applet | 0.85-1       | bionic/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x
 mate-dock-applet | 0.87-1       | cosmic/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x
 mate-dock-applet | 0.87-1       | disco/universe  | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x

So you do need any PPA to get it working.

Moreover the ppa:webupd8team/mate PPA does not support 18.04 LTS (bionic). Consider to remove it from your sources.list:

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:webupd8team/mate
sudo apt-get update

and then simply install the package with

sudo apt-get install mate-dock-applet
