The Plank Dock - A thin grey line across the screen ...

The Plank Dock - A thin grey line across the screen ... A work around!

Installed the dock - Plank via the MX-Package installer. I had it dock at the bottom of the screen. This caused a thin grey line to show up across the screen. This is very annoying.

I tried to fix it via Plank's settings, but nothing works.

This is a work around:

Menu > Settings > Window Manager Tweaks > Compositor: Uncheck -> Show shadows under
dock windows.

The annoying grey line should be gone.

Hi Minda .. Your Welcome :smile:
That is very nice!

I see you got your menu up on the top left also.
I changed the categories from being on the right,
to being on the left. Although it isn't for everyone,
for me it is easier to slide across and navigate.
I find I don't slide off the scroll bar and end up on
different categories.
