Do you want a “show desktop” button in docky?
If you do, this post is for you!
How do you get one? First this show desktop button ONLY works with compiz (for now at least). Here goes the instructions:
1 – Activate desktop effects aka compiz
2 – Activate the dbus plugin
2 – Download my show_desktop.py python script, save it somewhere safe and make executable.
3 – Create a menu entry for the script in GNOME’s main menu and assign a nice desktop icon from a theme of your choise
4 -Add the menu entry to your docky.
5 – Enjoy your new “show desktop” botton!
Here goes the absolutely necessary screenshot 🙂
