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?
I found the following workaround using the command line:
gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock show-apps-at-top true
To make it persistent, 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/
