Is it possible to remove the Docky icon from the docky bar? If not, is this something planned? I feel like the customization would be way more better with that ability.

Asked by Joe Elliott on 2012-03-14

The Docky icon sits in the dock for what seems to be ease of configuration. it would be really nice to be able to remove that and force docky administration from the computer preferences area.

This is an amazing application.

The link provided only gives me a list of similar questions with no direct answer.
Is this a feature that is going to be added to the config GUI for simplicity?

No it will not be added to the GUI. And the link gives you the answer, you just didn't bother reading.

The first Solved question for example links to the page which has the setting you want.

The second Solved question also states that we will not be adding it to the GUI.

The third Answered question has a link to a HOWTO on how to remove it, step by step.

I read all of the links but I didnt understand since clearly directly answering the question is hard.

Why can this not be included in the GUI? If it had to stay could it do something else like bring up a dash like unity? accessing the config another way?
