Working on my Sardi Icons I missed the little program Plank from Rico Tzschichholz at


Code to install is :

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz
 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get install plank


Plank theme from Numix

If you have installed Numix themes already, you can install the extra numix plank theme.


sudo apt-get install numix-plank-theme


Plank theme from Ken Harkey
Works only for Linux Mint 17 NOT 18

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:justsomedood/justsomeelementary
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install plank-theme-*

Since Ken has made 12 themes we install all of them using an “*” as wild card or you choose which one you want on his website.

They can be set in the preferences of the plank. Right mouse click on the plank.


Examples of all 12 and the standard ones as well

Plank theme location

Normal installation with ppa then your files will be located in


You can also copy/paste themes from the net in this location. They will pop-up in your theme drop-down.


Personalize the plank

You can actually change the settings, it is not that difficult to read.

I changed the roundness.
