Any suggestions on a good dock to replace the taskbar? Something that can be translucent at bottom of screen?
Thanks

Use the taskbar, horizontal, unlock it in preferences, drag it to bottom then lock it. Using appearance drag the Alpha arrow to the left (0)
Things can be a simple as you want them.

Many might prefer to use MX Tweak to move the taskbar, though.

Depends upon how many apps you want to open. Whatever floats your boat.

Are asking about the XFCE panel? It's not called taskbar? The panel can be translucent at the bottom.
