    How to make 2nd side panel in Unity?

    Hey guys!
    So I have 12.04LTS with left panel which is auto-hiding. I want one more panel on bottom which shouldn't auto-hide and thus i could place all my usable shortcuts there while running programs would show in the left one

    Is there a way?
    Some program, maybe?

    It works but the other way than i want :C
    It adds a bottom panel which looks like Start in windows and shows opened windows. i want the panel pinned to desktop which wouldnt hide and show me just shortcuts

    i just installed cairo-dock (its in the repos) and that seems to work pretty well with unity.

    The Plank dock works well on Ubuntu and can be positioned to any side of the screen.

    You could look at tint2 panel as well, it's in the repositories. I use it in conjunction with gnome-shell, I find it better for switching between windows and apps than gnome-shell's native method. It works with unity too I believe. You need to configure it via a hidden .config file. I remove the clock for instance.

    Just use gnome-panel.
    Use Super+alt+Right-click for customizing.

    Super+alt+Right-click on panel and create new panel at the bottom if one is not shown.
    Remove the top panel.
    Remove unwanted items from the panel.
    Drag n drop shortcuts from the dash to the panel.
