GConf Settings

You can tweak a number of settings by using gconf-editor. This page will try and document what those settings are and their purpose.

Unless otherwise noted, all keys assume Docky version 2.0.0 or newer.

A little heads-up on the possible values. They can be true/false, numbers or strings. It should be pretty self explanatory which is for each setting. Strings are usually usernames or file paths to launchers/folders/files that are on your dock(s).

To start tweaking the settings press ALT+F2 and type gconf-editor. Navigate to /apps/docky-2 - note that Docky should not be running (or it may override your changes) and that any changes made require a restart of Docky.
