Plank 0.11.0... How to restore Plank's preferences

Brief introduction...

       Plank, its a lightweight dock developed and maintained by the same team of " Docky". On the latest release of Plank, preference settings are not displayed by default. On this article, I'm going to show how to restore the preference settings.

We made a small video tutorial, showing how to restore Plank preferences
Feel free to comment and subscribe our channel.

So, how we do it...
  • Open your terminal, then copy and paste the follow command line
    • plank --preferences
       ... now, you have two options. You can use this command line, every time you want to change the look and feel of Plank, or lock-down the icon of "preference settings" on the dock.
       For that, just follow the next steps. ( work best on XFCE and Mate )

    • Click on the right mouse button, and choose " Create Launcher... "
    • Give it a name, ex. " Plank Preferences "
    • On the " Command " area, enter the command line:  plank --preferences
    • Click create.
    • Marck the launcher as: " Executable "
    • Click on the icon, and press it, then move it to the dock.

And, that's it!
