Re: Unity side-launcher: specific case for relocation
I agree that not allowing users to change the position of the launcher is ridiculous. There was a plugin called Unityshell-rotated that would accomplish this, but it does not work for 12.XX. The developer has not released any new updates for this plugin since December of last year, and it is probably safe to say that he either quit developing it or gave up. It's now mid-November.
I am riding out 11.10 until it becomes unsupported. If there is still no bottom launcher workaround for a newer version of Ubuntu by the time this happens, I'm dropping Ubuntu entirely and going with a different flavor of linux. This lack of customization and support for those who want it is completely inexcusable for an operating system that totes itself as being open-source and open to the suggestions of the community. No offense, but it is the truth.
