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


Installed: 67ubuntu19.10.1

Candidate: 67ubuntu19.10.1

Version table:

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/ 

and reboot.


I had the same problem and this worked for me I reinstalled 'dash to dock' by using this command:

    sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock

check for docks in settings after the installation
