Had my dock on bottom (+autohide) in Ubuntu 19.04. After upgrade to Ubuntu 19.10 it disappeared and can be found now only in Activities overview.

I can start apps from there and it has all apps that I have added there but can't get it to be in the original place and on desktop, not in Activities.

Tried Settings -> Dock and none of the 3 settings (Auto hide, Icon size, Position) have any effect.

Output $apt policy gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock

gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock:

Installed: 67ubuntu19.10.1

Candidate: 67ubuntu19.10.1

Version table:

*** 67ubuntu19.10.1 500

500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu eoan/main amd64 Packages

500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu eoan/main i386 Packages

100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Restarting desktop with "r" does not correct the proble, Dock still in Activities.

    According to a comment by user paravane on gnome extensions site, "To everyone getting errors after upgrading to 19.10 ALT+F2 type "r" then press enter. (without the quotes) This will restart your shell and your dock will appear at the bottom." – Jeff Beagley Oct 23 '19 at 15:04

I had the same problem. I uninstalled dash to dock extension and execute this

dconf reset -f /org/gnome/shell/extensions/dash-to-dock/ 

then reboot.

    This is not dash-to-dock, this is ubuntu-dock. – Alexey Jun 13 '20 at 17:21

Try activating Ubuntu dock under the Extensions tab of the GNOME tweak tools.

sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock
sudo mv ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ubuntu-dock@ubuntu.com /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
  • Then Press F2 and type r

The workaround is to reboot the Gnome shell by following the protocols presented below. 1.Press ALT + F2. 2.In the pop-up terminal, type r and press Enter.

The Gnome shell will restart without breaking the existing processes.
