    Angry Dock problem

    Good morning,


    Does anyone else have a problem where the dock bar in auto-hide mode covers icons at the bottom of the screen when I view files on the desktop?

    You need to tell us what you are using: Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, etc. and which version - 16.04, 18.04, etc

    I've seen that too, even with the dock at the left. It's normal - the dock will avoid covering open windows, but not desktop icons. Just move the icons to the next row above.

    Even if I move icons and delete something from the desktop, my icons travel all over the desktop ... Regardless of how I set the icons, I just do anything and they are there again ...

    Re: Dock problem

    Perhaps you would be better with a a different Desktop Environment / Ubuntu variant (aka flavor) as suggested in your other ranting thread? Or just go back to Windows?

    Let's be real here. Posting an handful "angry-faced" threads in a row, all of them with the same "why doesn't feature X works like in the glorious Windows?", and knowing that a few of them actually work pretty much the same way as I already explained in another thread, frankly, is quite irritating.

    Re: Dock problem

    I don't know what the Desktop Environment means.


    I put angry faces for a reason. I think that after 3 months of work on Ubuntu it is a hopeless system in terms of use. I have many Linux servers for 10 years but I have never worked on them as a base distribution. After 3 months, I find it a nightmare system for masochists.


    Unfortunately, but Windows is light years ahead of the settings panel in Ubuntu ... Have you seen Windows 10? In my opinion, it offers 10x more options than Ubuntu.


    I want to learn the Ubuntu system but it does not make it easy for me every now and again puts a wall that I need to jump over, this system is not suitable for work. It has a lot of bugs and strange things, everything I install from the terminal is not visible in Software Ubuntu and I have to remember 2000 programs that I do something is absurd.


    I don't know how you use a computer but in my experience Ubuntu is hopeless and 20 years old for Windows.

    Synaptic is a popular package manager for installing software.

    Code:
    sudo apt install synaptic

    Re: Dock problem

    I did not know this solution.


    It doesn't change the fact that Ubuntu doesn't have any built-in tools to control everything we install on it.


    Installing everything from the terminal is cumbersome and forces you to remember a lot of things.


    It is a pity that nobody thought about something like the control panel in Windows where updates and packages are separated from the application software and everything can be easily and quickly found.


    For sure, Ubuntu will never be as efficient in management as Windows, and this is its biggest disadvantage from my point of view as a computer operator without the aspiration to write their own software plugins.




    My conclusion is that Linux is not for everyone and is directed only to a small group of specialists and enthusiasts, it is not a system for 99% of humanity.
