I just upgraded from Ubuntu 19.04 to 19.10 (fresh installation). In 19.04, I installed an application from Ubuntu Software called dash to panel or dash to dock (it was one of these 2- which one? I don't remember).

It removed the top bar and merged the clock and battery etc. in my dock as:

enter image description here

After switching to 19.10, I tried installing this, because I prefer to have larger "work" area. I searched for both of these in Ubuntu Software, but apparently, I didn't get any search results for these. I'm not sure have it works in Ubuntu- are these extensions not up for 19.10 yet? If yes, are there any alternatives for it? If no, what am I doing wrong? I'm 99.99% sure that it is one of these 2!

    Are you running a Gnome Shell? If so have you installed gnome-tweaks? – Paul Benson Oct 18 '19 at 20:24

    It's Dash to Panel, install it from here: extensions.gnome.org/extension/1160/dash-to-panel – Logix Oct 18 '19 at 21:05
  • @Logix I see this message when I go to this link: "We cannot detect a running copy of GNOME on this system, so some parts of the interface may be disabled. See our troubleshooting entry for more information." – Ankit Kumar Oct 19 '19 at 5:06
  • @PaulBenson yes I am runnung Gnome: GNOME Shell 3.34.1. Yes I have installed gnome-tweaks, but it's extension option doesn't show me the required stuff (attached screenshot for the same) – Ankit Kumar Oct 19 '19 at 5:09

    @Logix that linked helped. I don't know why it shows that message, but I was certainly able to get it now. Thanks a lot! – Ankit Kumar Oct 19 '19 at 5:15

I just upgraded to 19.10 myself from 19.04. Dash to Dock seems to have stopped working. I just installed Dash to panel and that seems to work. You can position it on either the top or bottom. And I do like the extra space it provides.

For me I installed it as a gnome extension from the website. https://extensions.gnome.org/

You will need to make sure to have the Gnome Integration Add-on installed in Firefox if it isn't installed already. If it is installed you will see a black foot print towards the top right of the Firefox browser for the Gnome Integration add-on and that can take you to the website.

I hope this helps you out.

  • I installed this from Ubuntu Software. Thanks anyway :) – Ankit Kumar Oct 23 '19 at 14:24
  • It does not work. In ubuntu software center, it's enabled, but nothing happened. Already the top bar is here... – skonsoft Oct 25 '19 at 9:04
  • I also have upgraded from 19.04 and Dash to Panel stopped working. I solved it by removing and reinstalling it. – BiNZGi Nov 4 '19 at 16:29
