Add bottom menu on Debian Linux

  • by

Recently I installed a fresh Debian 12 on my PC. Once the installation was finished and I logged in for the first time, I was waiting for some menu bar or application bar to show. But nothing came. Turns out the gnome desktop is a clean as it can get by default. See image below

So how do you get a nice menu bar at the top or at the bottom of the homescreen?

First open Firefox and brows to https://extensions.gnome.org. Install the Gnome Shell Browser Extension.

After that is done, search for “Dash to Panel” and switch it on. And voila, there you have a nice menu bar on the bottom.

To change the settings right-click on the taskbar and choose “Dash to Panel Settings”.

See you next time!
