There are instructions how to do it previous versions of elementary OS but not for Loki. There is no setting file in the /home/.config/dock1 folder to edit. My monitors are not mirrored, they are extended. I want taskbar on both monitors.

Please help :)


Setting is now done via gsettings. Install dconf-editor an go to net > launchpad > plank and change enabled-docks from ['dock1'] to ['dock1', 'dock2'] and run

 cp ~/.config/plank/dock1 ~/.config/plank/dock2

Now restart plank. If you change your docked apps often you might want to look into syncing two folders You could come up with a command that syncs the folders and have it run on every reboot.

  • Thanks for your answer. What if I link the dock1 items to dock2? Would that work? Nov 9 '16 at 10:04
  • I haven't tried, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. To create a symbolic link so the computer sees dock1 when pointed at dock2, delete the dock2 folder and run: ln -s ~./config/plank/dock1 ~./config/plank/dock2 Nov 9 '16 at 16:36
