How to install DockbarX Version 0.91 On Ubuntu 14.04 Linux Mint 17










DockBarX is lightweight dock/taskbar/panel replacement for Linux desktop which works as stand-alone dock (called DockX), as an Avant Window Navigator applet, as a Xfce4 panel applet, as a matepanel applet or as a legacy Gnome2 panel applet. DockbarX is a fork of dockbar made by Aleksey Shaferov and the DockbarX branch is developed by Matias Särs. DockBarX is free software and is licensed under GPL3.
It has features like autohide, dodge windowsm dodge the active window, Unity progress bars and badges support as well as dynamic quicklists.
Dockbar has a launchpad page. If you want to report bugs, translate DockbarX into your language or request features, you should do it there, if possible. It's still OK to report bugs and request features here as well, if you don't want to register a launchpad account. The launchpad page is for both vanilla Dockbar and DockbarX, so make sure to tag any requests or bug reports directed to DockbarX with "dockbarx".


  • DockX showed arrows instead of adjusting its width or height.
  • DockbarX should now be able to handle situations where there are too many open applications to show them all in dockbarx.
  • Battery applet added for DockX.
  • DockbarX no longer freeze when there are more windows open than can fit into the window list.
  • A graphical glitch fixed. Icons no longer has junk pixels around them.
  • Code cleanups and possibly also some speedups.
  • Volume-control was not installed with the rest of the applets.
  • A small bug stopped volume-controll from starting on a fresh setup.
  • Other small fixes.

To install DockbarX run the following commands via Terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dockbar-main/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dockbarx dockbarx-themes-extra

 If you are using Xfce, you need to install Xfce Plugin for Xfce Panel:

 sudo apt-get install xfce4-dockbarx-plugin
