Ubuntu – Can you change the orientation of the Unity launcher


I was looking at 11.04 pre-Alpha and wondering if I can change the dock orientation. Does the pre-Alpha have this function? Is the idea being implemented as we speak? If not where can I propose this idea?

Best Answer

This feature request was reported as a bug recently, but the request was declined.

Mark Shuttleworth answered:

I'm afraid that won't work with our broader design goals, so we won't implement that. We want the launcher always close to the Ubuntu button.
