Ubuntu – Dock disappeared after upgrade to Ubuntu 19.10, only visible in Activities overview


Had my dock on bottom (+autohide) in Ubuntu 19.04. After upgrade to Ubuntu 19.10 it disappeared and can be found now only in Activities overview.

I can start apps from there and it has all apps that I have added there but can't get it to be in the original place and on desktop, not in Activities.

Tried Settings -> Dock and none of the 3 settings (Auto hide, Icon size, Position) have any effect.

$apt policy gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock


Installed: 67ubuntu19.10.1

Candidate: 67ubuntu19.10.1

Restarting desktop with "r" does not correct the proble, Dock still in Activities.

I had the same problem. I uninstalled dash to dock extension and execute this

dconf reset -f /org/gnome/shell/extensions/dash-to-dock/ 

then reboot.
