Just noticed that changing the indicators to "dots" from "default" fixes the issue.

Nobody else noticing the little dots that represent open windows are now slightly upwards and within the applications icon since the patch has been removed?

Annoying on apps with white icons, like Slack.

whats difference between installing extensions from the aur and installing extensions from

pdimh commented on 2022-08-29 20:26 (UTC)

is that patch needed? The latest version worked fine here without the patch, but looks a bit off when the patch is applied.

@daniruiz, your patch is now applied

Hey all, I have some issues with the extension.

I have tested the ubuntu-dock branch (what this package currently installs), and I've also tried the master branch with the following PRs merged: (from @daniruiz)

The following two issues are present on both:

The first is blurry edges around icon highlights, which I found an issue was submitted for already on Github:

The second issue is that certain applications take a long time to show up in the dock after I've launched them. I've found several reports of this issue (or similar ones?), but none of the fixes I found work for me. One app that I'm having this problem with for example is Google Chrome ( On Wayland, when I launch Chrome for the first time after login, the icon pretty consistently takes 15-16 seconds to show up. After that, if I close up Chrome, then reopen it, it takes around 2 seconds to show up every time. Other apps, like GNOME apps (calculator, extensions, etc.) or VLC will show up instantly. If I use Xorg, Chrome takes 2 secs to show up every time, so basically the same as on Wayland, minus that 15 second first time wait. I've had this issue for a long time on Manjaro, but I never really bothered to look much into it, figured it was some misconfiguration issue. Now I'm running a fresh Arch install, and the issue remains.

Does someone by chance know a solution to these issues?

@vagelis, there is some activity upstream, once this PR is merged

I think we can go back to the main branch and hopefully they make a new version

vagelis commented on 2022-05-02 19:13 (UTC)

@drakkan how can this be fixed?

"It is really unfortunate that this package is not well maintained upstream and we have to use a different branch (with a different naming scheme) every time"

I've made a PR to fix the stylesheet for GNOME 42, in case you want to use the patch for this package It fixes some issues with the spacings and margins that weren't properly fixed in the ubuntu-dock branch.

  • Use similar spacings to the original gnome dock
  • Fixed the difference in the vertical and horizontal padding in the dock
  • Add bottom gap
  • Fix position of running dot
  • Fix position of labels
  • Better shrinked panel design

You can find the patch file in the link below, as it's a patch I made for the dash-to-dock package in Kali Linux
