However, there is no easy way to move the Show Applications icon (shown on the right) to the left of the Dock. There is no such setting in GNOME Control Center. There is already a bug filed, but does anybody know any workaround until it gets fixed by Ubuntu Dock developers?
The following command will work for the current user:
gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock show-apps-at-top true
Is the command-line equivalent to dconf-editor GUI.
To make it persistent system-wide, run these commands as root:
echo "show-apps-at-top=true" >> /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/10_ubuntu-dock.gschema.override glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
There is a way but the dock will be like in middle.
- Download and install gnome-tweaks.
- Go to any browser and go to extensions.gnome.org
- Click on click here to install browser extension.
- Go ahead and install it.
- After it's done again go to extensions.gnome.org
- Search for dash to dock.
- Click it and toggle its ON position.
- Go to tweaks app (search for it in app menu)
- Go to extensions tab.
- Go to dash to dock.
- Toggle it on (if not already on).
- Click the Gear icon on the right side dash to dock option. Then there will be option for changing the place of launcher in LAUNCHERS tab
