Is There A Means Or A Way To Move Linux Ubuntu's New Unity GUI's 'The Launcher' From The Default Left Edge Of The Desktop Monitor Screen And Position It To The BOTTOM Of The Desktop/Monitor Screen?
Posted on 2012-03-30
Hello. I have a question regarding Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit operating system.
Regarding the new Unity GUI desktop screen since the inception of Ubuntu v.11.04, there is now a left side screen dock for application shortcuts called the "Launcher". I see the Launcher dock is visible when active by input device interaction and 'appears' to be permanently placed or mounted to the left edge of the desktop/ monitor screen.
My thread question is:
Is there a means or a way to move the Launcher from the default left edge of the desktop/monitor screen and position it to the BOTTOM of the desktop/ monitor screen with the same visible when active interaction?
If it is possible, how what I perform this task?
Please answer all these applicable specific questions too:
(a) Is there some Ubuntu inherent setting that allows for repositioning the Launcher dock and mounting it to another edge of the desktop or monitor screen I need to know about lke being user customizable? Please explain.
(b) Is there some Terminal command line script I need to enter to move the Launcher dock? Please explain.
(c) If you know of the Terminal command line script, could you also let me know of the antidote like another Terminal command line script or the way to restore the Launcher dock back to its original left edge of the desktop or monitor screen as well if I ever wished too? Please explain.
