Dash-to-Plank – Plank Dock integration on Ubuntu 20.04

Do you prefer the Plank Dock Launcher? Dash-to-Plank is a GNOME Shell extension for integration into Ubuntu.

In addition to the Dash-to-Dock and Dash-to-Panel, this is the third “Dash-to” extension I’ve heard.It’s a Gnome Shell integration Board, The simplest dock on the planet.

Why board?

For me, the only reason to use Plank instead of the Ubuntu Dock (Dash-to-Dock) is Board theme It’s available on the web, so you can freely change the look and feel.
