When I turned on my computer plank was duplicated. I have no idea why. I have moved the second plank to the side of the screen to show them both using: plank --preferences.

The left plank is the real plank and it is the only one that I can control. the bottom one is stuck there but the apps on it change according to the 'main' one

Please tell me how to fix this

You can remove the docks you don't want any more from net.launchpad.plank enabled-docks :

gsettings reset net.launchpad.plank enabled-docks

via the command line or by the dconf Editor.

  • thanks for the answer but I worked it out by doing multiplank -d as I had installed i earlier Apr 19, 2017 at 20:01
