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