I've used Docky and GLX-Dock (because i want a dock on the bottom, not the side) but I can't figure out how to add the search button to either of them. I'd like either suggestions for dock apps that will enable bottom docks as well as the search app on the bottom of the dock.
I don't know of any with such a search feature.
As a workaround, you can install cairo dock
sudo apt-get install cairo-dock. Launch it, right click on it and choose "Cairo Dock"->"Configure", then activate the following plugins:
- Under "Desktop", activate "Applications menu": This will enable you to launch any installed app in your computer.
- Under "Accessories", activate "Recent Events": This will enable you to open/launch any recent files be it documents, music, folders, etc.
- Under "Files", activate "Folders": You can have your favorite folders in there for a quick access.
Hope I've helped.
