I want to prevent Docky from hiding but I also want it to dodge windows so Docky is above everything.

Is there a way to do this whether within or out of the application?

I am using 11.04 classic desktop.


Unfortunately there is no option in the Settings to achieve this. But I know a workaround:

1.Right click on the Docky icon in the dock and go to Settings. In Settings, choose Windows Dodge under Dock Configuration. Check Fade on Hide too.

2.Now Hit Alt+F2 , and open gconf-editor.

Navigate to /apps/docky-2/Docky/Interface/DockPreferences/Dock1/ and chnage the value of FadeOpacity to 1.

enter image description here

3.Restart Docky.
