Put yourself down somewhere, as stiff as a plank, and film yourself doing that--a.k.a. "planking"--is the hot thing to do on Youtube right now. So I thought this was a joke post. Planking on Linux! :lol:

Actually a very good an to the point tutorial of a beautiful dock.

Nice. However - when I go through the installing sequence until I get to:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install plank


Then I get the following:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install plank
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package plank


Not sure what I do wrong - everything else looks normal. Have the same problem with xnoise .... I have installed quite a few packages like that - first time this happens. What do I do wrong?

Code: Select all
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ricotz/docky
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/wuala-keyring.gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 38AE4F60E356CE050312FA1775CFD31C9E5DB0C8

I see - thanks for clearing this up. That's my work machine and I prefer the LTS on that. I have a LMDE version as well - any chance to get it run on that (... I know - I'm sliding off topic fast .... ) :?
