Did you know that very recently Docky added the option to remove the Anchor icon from the dock? Oh yes!
OMG! reader kiwisoup e-mailed me over some instructions that I thought i’d paste here: –
- Press ALT + F2
- Type command “gconf-editor” and hit enter/return
- Navigate to “apps/docky-2/docky/items/DockyItem” in the gconf-editor
- Uncheck “ShowDockyItem”
- Restart Docky
Et voilà! Anchor free Docky!
If you’re lazy and want to do this via the terminal you can do so using the following commands. (Thanks to commenter dRewsus)
This command will turn the icon off:
gconftool-2 --type Boolean --set /apps/docky-2/Docky/Items/DockyItem/ShowDockyItem False
And this one back on:
gconftool-2 --type Boolean --set /apps/docky-2/Docky/Items/DockyItem/ShowDockyItem True
Remember that you will need to restart Docky to see the changes take effect.
