Last week I installed the beautiful Ubuntu based Linux distribution Elementary OS Luna. Since I am a long time Ubuntu user, the experience was a bit different from Unity. Luna comes with a dock with a default set of programs. This dock is like Unity launcher that gives quick access to different applications and programs.
In this quick tip, I’ll show you how to add a new program in dock in Elementary OS Luna for quick and easy access.
