I installed slingscold and plank by typing the following in terminal:

sudo su
add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/macbuntu
apt update
apt install slingscold
apt install plank
apt install macbuntu-os-plank-theme-lts-v7

Now I am able to launch slingscold and plank. However I cannot figure out how to put the slingscold icon on plank. Usual methods don't seem to work in case of slingscold.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

in alternative you may open the folder below

/usr/share/applications

where are all the application launchers, search for the Slingcold icon and drag&drop it on plank. It works fine for me and I think it is quite simplier
