If you are an Linux user and want your desktop looking more like Apple OS X, this post is for you. One of the cool things that Apple’s OS X operating system includes is the dock down at the bottom of the main desktop window. This makes your commonly-used programs easy to get to without having to go through a process of searching for them.

With this in mind, there is an application that you can install on your Linux box that acts a dock for you. This application is called KDocker.

This application is available for the following Linux distributions:

  • Suse
  • Slackware
  • Red Hat
  • Debian
  • Kubuntu

For easy install in Ubuntu/Gnome, you can perform the following syntax in at the command line:

sudo apt-get install kdocker

This application is great for making your Linux GUI’s appearance like Apple OS X! :)
