latte dock on lxqt dont work as it works on plasma. when i asked on forums to the dev of latte they said lxqt devs and latte dock devs need to work together to solve issues with latte dock on lxqt.
Check out all the options available in lxqt-panel: autohide, icons only, transparency, width and position and so on: you can transform it in a nice dock. Afaik latte dock is built on plasma-framework which are not used at all in LXQt and I don’t think this will change.
I completely agree with @stefonarch on using an instance of LXQt panel like an auto-hiding dock:
i know we can almost use lxqt-panel as dock and the biggest problem why its not a dock is because of quick launch and taskbar are seperate. and we have discussed about it.
anyways - plank work just fine for LXQt - so there are a lot of choices in the wild
Which most users consider good.
I used Plank 3-4 (?) years ago. It had a minor bug that I reported but it wasn’t fixed (for a long time – I don’t know how it is now). Then, I thought about animation and @palinek and I implemented it. Since then, I only use LXQt panel as an auto-hiding dock and I’m very satisfied with it
BTW, 2 days ago, I was logged in KDE and had to install Latte dock to check something with it. Unfortunately, it had bad bugs, which I didn’t report because I didn’t use it. Understandably, we don’t want to introduce bugs into LXQt.
If Latte dock works well under LXQt at some point – as Plank does – it’ll be good. If not, we couldn’t do anything about it.
