Description:

Latte Dock, amazing piece of software very customizable.
With the possibility of creating both, a top panel and dock, with everything you need to work.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

The new version of macOS, macOS Big Sur, is just around the corner, and it is loaded with many new features; And many of us in the Linux Community want to experience an interface similar to that of macOS Big Sur. With that in mind I have decided to make a Layout for Latte Dock to bring a bit of what's new in macOS BS.
I hope you like it and enjoy it };-]

First of all, you need to install Latte Dock and a few Widgets or Plasmoids, to make it work properly.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Installing Latte Dock

Warning: The version needed for these layouts to work properly is the Git version of Latte Doc; This Git version brings extra functions that the normal version does not have, such as floating dock, rounded corners, the Sidebar Widget, etc ...
So in the normal versions of the repositories, non-Git version, these functions will have no effect and the Layout will not work correctly, for this reason it is necessary to install the Git version of Latte Dock.


After researching a few ways to make it easier for you to install the Git version of Latte Dock, I have found some ways, but not for all distros, for example: The Manjaro community has in its AUR repositories a packaged version of the version Git de Latte, in OpenSUSE I have found a package of the Git version of Latte, not so for KDE Neon or Kubuntu, I mean, yes, I have found a package version in ".deb" of the Git version of Latte in Launchpad. net, but it is necessary to install dependencies, which makes the compilation process the most recommended option for the installation of Latte Dock Git Version.

So I will leave instructions for installation in Manjaro KDE and OpensSUSE KDE, and for installation in Kubuntu and KDE Neon I will leave the link for the Latte Dock repository on GitHub where the compilation instructions are.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Installation of Latte Dock Git Version in Manjaro
There are two ways to install the Git version of Latte Dock in Manjaro.

1. Doing a search on "Pamac"

Open "Pamac" and do a search for "latte dock git", the results will be two versions, one to install and another to compile, so, choose the version to install, since the compilation way takes a little more time, and it is the second form of installation.

2. Doing a Compilation.
There are two ways to compile install the Git version of Latte Dock.

2.1 Open "Pamac" and do a search for "latte dock git", in the results you will find the option "Build" that will compile the version automatically, which will save you from doing the whole process.

2.2 Go to the GitHub repository of Latte Dock and go to the file "INSTALATION.md" there you will find the necessary dependencies that you must install before starting the compilation process.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Installation of the Latte Dock Version Git in OpenSUSE KDE.

I have found a packaged version in a ".rpm" file ready to install just by running a command.

Packaged Latte Dock Git Version for OpenSUSE

Installing ".rpm" files
sudo zypper install name-of-latte-package.rpm

On this page there is also the alternative of adding a repository and installing directly from this added repository, so you can choose what way to use to install Latte Dock git version.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> For installation on Kubuntu and KDE Neon

In these distros the best way to install Latte Dock is to follow the instructions for compilation and installation of the official Latte Dock repository on GitHub, so, go to the link at the bottom and inside the repository look for the file "INSTALLATION.md" and follow the dependency installation and build instructions.

Latte Dock GitHub Repository

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Importing Themes

To import the themes into Latte Dock you must run Latte Dock and then right click on any part of the Dock, then "Layouts" and "Manage Layouts", when the window opens look for "Import" click and Search where you have saved your downloaded theme file; now double click on the "In Menu" part, so you have access from the menu without opening the "Manage Layouts" window at any time, and that's all. Now you can enjoy any theme you like.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Widgets or Plasmoids NEDDED!!

For mcOS BS Layout to work properly, you need to install these Widgets.
So right click on Plasma desktop and go to "Add Widgets", then "Get New Widgets" and then "Download New Plasma Widgets" and search for the next Widgets:

List of Widgets from left to right and Need to install

Left
  • Kpple Menu
  • Application Title

Thanks for your prompt reply.
I am using the latest GitHub version of Latte Dock. My distribution is Manjaro KDE, with all updates installed. I have all requested widgets installed, as well.
If you need, I can send you screenshots and short videos of the issues I mentioned.
Keep up the good work!

@nunonun, I have already updated the layouts, try the new update and if you still have bugs, then it would be great to see a video or screenshot of the errors that are presented to you, because I am also in Manjaro KDE, and I test in KDE Neon, OpensSUSE KDE, and in virtual machines with Kubuntu and I have no failures;
so I have done it again from scratch and taking care in every aspect and so it works on each distro, I also test on different screens and that's why I upload two versions, because the version for large screens often fails due to the dimensions of small screens. So try the update and then tell me if you find errors.

And again, thank you very much for your support };-]

8 Great job!
The only problem found so far is with the "Launchpad Plasma" icon. When changing it from the default apple to something else, it becomes white, no matter icon we choose (system or custom, svg, or png). It also happens with the custom suggested icon.

In the next update it will be solved, but you can fix it so that this annoying error does not appear.
First enter the Latte Dock configuration with a right click on the Dock, then click on "Rearrange and configure your widgets", go to the "Launchpad" icon and deactivate the "Enable Painting for this applet" option.
In the next update the problem will be solved, thanks for reporting it, friend, Thans for your support };-]

Well, the truth is I have not tested in the Cinnmon environment, only on distros with KDE desktop.
You see, the problem of trying to install Latte Dock on other distros that do not have a KDE Plasma desktop is that you need many dependencies belonging to Plasmashell, I mean, you can install Latte Dock and it can work, but only the Dock, when there is a Dock with a Panel that brings many widgets the thing becomes difficult, since the widgets are necessary for the Panel and the Layout in general to work correctly. The problem is that these widgets are part of Plasmashell, which makes installing a complete Layout on a distro that does not have the KDE desktop can break the desktop.

What I recommend to you, if you cannot access the Cinnamon desktop, is to press the keys "ctrl + alt + f1", once the terminal appears, enter with the credentials of your user, user and password, then uninstall Latte Dock with the command : "sudo apt remove latte-dock", then run the command: "sudo reboot" and wait for the restart of the OS.
I hope this can help you in case you haven't solved the problem yet.

In this update:

Hi ! Great layout ! I don't know why though, but the icon of the pamac-manager is a bit pixelated. Do you know a way to fix this ? https://imgur.com/M9OZaPZ I've just tried reinstalling but the issue is still occuring (on KDE). Also, the icon is not pixelated with Plasma layout for instance.
