Dash to dock & Gnome 40

After the release of Fedora 34, I was pleased to see Gnome 40 and all its new features.

For me there is still something I do not understand:

To access the dock I have to go to the hot corner (top-left part of the screen) to show the dash, then move down to access my favorite applications in the dash…

I was used to have the dash-to-dock extension, and this one is not ready yet for gnome 40. But…

If you want to test it, you can go there https://github.com/ewlsh/dash-to-dock/tree/ewlsh/gnome-40. Ewan is providing his first test for dash-to-dock on gnome 40.

  • download the zip file
  • extract it to a folder
  • go to this folder form a shell
  • type make install
  • activate the extension

Not all settings are working already but it is already enough to be used and enjoy gnome 40!

The design of the GNOME 40 is a complete nonsense. I don’t think any of the GNOME team has an idea and deals professionally with user interfaces.

Without dash-to-dock extension for me personally GNOME is completely unusable. And finally, GNOME 40 is a clear example of how consumer confidence is being lost.

Gnome 40 is very sad. No dock. Have to install extensions out the wazoo. I want Dash to dock. Developers in linux create so many unnecessary features that add no value, and a new program that accomplishes the same exact thing another freeware program already does better. Meanwhile, common sense issues someone would notice within 15 seconds of using the program go unfixed. No wonder why people won’t try linux
