DEPRECATED: Now Dock is no longer maintained. Future development is focused on Latte Dock, a merge of Now Dock and Candil-Dock projects. Feel free to join us in this new journey!


This is a panel and plasmoid for Plasma 5 which is trying to implement a mac style effect for its applets. It uses the Now Dock plasmoid for its configuration and complements it as one single area for which the user can add its applets. The applets as the user windows are going to create a nice zoom effect on hovering.


  • Notice: First uninstall any locally installed now dock components by using the script

####installation script####

  • sh

Now Dock Panel is now ready to be used from right-click menu in the Desktop
