The shipped dash-to-dock gnome extension for RHEL7.5 doesn't work in RHEL7.5

Solution Verified - Updated -


When installed and loaded, we experience the following (all these are problematic and didn't happen in RHEL7.4 with the previous version of dash-to-dock):

  • The the dock is active, switching to the activities view also shows the dash, doubling up on the dash/dock (and one over the top of the other)
  • When dash-to-dock is activated, loading gnome-tweak-tool shows a warning sign next to the extension and hovering over this shows "Error loading extension"
  • After the dock has been activated, we expect to be able to disable it again. Due to the above, we don't see to be able to
  • The Waffle button on the dock does not open the Activities view as it should (although right click to alter the settings does work)
