what are you asking? Can you install the that spaceship icon on Mint? Yes you can just add the the icon to your mint system (usr/share/pixelmaps) then click on the panel>Add to Panel>Create Cutsom Launcher.
The whole desktop environment looks like the Gnome Shell DE. You can find it in the repositories. Just search synaptic for 'gnome-shell'. You can then add the dock to the bottom with docky or something similar. You will have to select gnome-shell on login to use it.
That spaceship icon is the default icon for a new application launcher (i think). You can choose a unique icon for whatever application you want.
Don't install gnome-shell. Pear Linux uses Wingpanel, an old version of Slingshot and some other elements from elementaryOS' Pantheon Shell. It's not GNOME Shell. I don't think you can get that in Cinnamon.
Thank you "TheDynamicHamza21" I wasn't asking about the icon but asking about the possibility of having an icon on the dock that you can access all of your application through it. I think "bigj231" and "abnvolk" answered it. Thank you all.
