cant access plank settings

Asked by Peter Muss

Hello from Germany and pls pardon my bad english.

Im new to Linux Mint and Plank and run into this problem:

plank dock (latest from github) is up and running. But I cant access the config menu settings.
I try everything to get the mouse cursor "under" the dock symbols and try to right-click.
But the config menu does not show up. Only "Im Dock behalten" and "New Window" is shown up.
What can I do in this case?


Linux Mint 20.2 is running on DELL Latitude E6320 Laptop with Core i5, 8 GB RAM and 120 GB SSD
Graphic is Intel onboard.

Thx for your help and best regards

You can also run "plank --preferences" in the terminal to access the settings page.
