The theme has a small bug.
It misses a "shadow-center" element. Without this element plasma framework does not indicate that there is a full shadow element in the svgs.

1. This is the reason you do not see the shadow in plasma system settings.
2. This is the reason Latte Dock can not draw this theme shadow properly for its docks. For its panels there is no problem because kwin uses a different way to draw them. - Sep 01 2018

Thank you so much!!! Latte Dock will now support properly different panel backgrounds found in plasma themes based on the edge the docks or panels are present!!! - Aug 27 2018
I am sorry but how did you manage to have a whitish top panel and a darkish left panel? Is that supported from the Nilium plasma theme? - Aug 27 2018

please use https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=latte-dock for bugs/features. You may try to increase animations speed from Appearance page. If this isnt the thing then open a new bug report and attach also a video demonstrating the issue (e.g. from google drive) - Aug 20 2018
or you can just live with it... - Jul 29 2018
That separator is important part of Latte and that is why it is distributed with it.
You can remove the separator you have installed and afterwards install Latte, it will work just fine...

bug reports at: https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=latte-dock but sounds more as a kubuntu packaging issue, it might be better to contact the packager - Jul 27 2018
yep, that is... the way to do this is the same as in plasma panels in order for the plasma users to not change their workflow. - May 16 2018

thanks a lot!! :) thank you for your icons and graphics !!! :) - Apr 05 2018
In most distrubutions you should be able to install it also from Discover application - Apr 05 2018
Probably you are using a different kde frameworks version than the one the package you installed was built. - Apr 04 2018
You dont have to disable the "Behave as normal dock window" option. You can just disable all touch gestures from plasma systemsettings, more info at: https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/wiki/F.A.Q.#q-my-left-dock-behaves-strangely-from-plasma-510-and-beyond-can-i-fix-this - Dec 01 2017

https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/402 - Oct 18 2017
in next version you will be able to enable/disable the panel shadows, change the transparency of the panel background and alter the widgets shadows(color, size, transparency)

there are no plans for supporting independent themes or 3D version, only what we get from the plasma theme

there are many launchpad like launchers that you can find as widgets to add them in Latte such as:
https://store.kde.org/p/1169537/
or from default plasma: fullscreen app launcher - Jul 28 2017
Unfortunately "Windows Go Over" isnt in the decisions of Latte dev team... - Jul 28 2017
We found a solution for (1) and it is already added in our master branch...
it will land in 0.7 version...
all applets that have set fillWidth or fillHeight are respected and fill the remaining space... the calculations take into account the multiple use of them of course.. I tested it with three different active window plasmoids placed around and it worked really good... - Apr 08 2017
the crash you sent there is a chance that has been fixed in our branch of v0.6 at github...

you can always report it at: https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues
and guide you from there how to try the new commits and check if this is fixed...

- Apr 07 2017
Please report any issues or requests in out github page, it's only way to keep track what to implement and when... and provide an organized discussion per issue - Apr 07 2017
Sorry no alternative solution for fiilWidth yet... feel free to open a feature request at our github page or provide patches... - Apr 07 2017
this is the Latte plasmoid and not the Latte app...

go to terminal and run latte-dock, what is happening?
error messages?
nothing happens?

but from the screenshot I think that Latte is not installed correctly... - Apr 06 2017
any screenshot?

what is happening if you run the command latte-dock? - Apr 06 2017
1. the only way I managed to reproduce what you are describing in by having enabled for Active Window plasmoid the "Fill Width" option... this option must unchecked in order for fixed width of Active Window to work correctly... - Apr 05 2017
For more help in order to achieve what you want, open an issue at:https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/ - Apr 05 2017
1. the only way to maximize the panel is with Justified mode. I use a similar layout with yours, if you want to disable the automatic shrinking you can got at Setting->Tweaks->(uncheck) Shrink applets when it is needed. In that way I am also using the Active Window applet with fixed width with no issues...

2. the size of the panel must be a division of 8 this is why 16,24,32,40,48 it is a smart way to support this way icon sizes that do not blur the icons in normal mode. The global menu layout of Active Window for 24 px. and 32px. I dont like it either but I think this could be also a feature request for its developer. I think that if Latte is used more and more the plasmoid developers will notice their plasmoids behavior and make look and behave more properly... On the other hand if plasmoid developers want something from our side that improves the experience, of course and we are open for suggestions, ideas etc....

3. Thank you very much for this... :) we designed multi-screen support from the ground up and put a lot of love and care in it... :) there is only once small bug in 0.6.0, filter tasks by screen is not working correctly between different screens... of course this has been fixed already and it will land with upcoming 0.6.1 version - Apr 04 2017
you can drag n' move plasma widgets when you are in editing mode (editing mode is when the Latte configuration window is shown) - Apr 04 2017
Flatpack and Snap will fix this situation in the future... but the future is not today... - Apr 02 2017
You can install latte from AUR, and afterwards run latte-dock, right click anywhere in the dock and choose Latte Settings - Apr 02 2017
It isnt installed that way... what distro are you using? - Apr 02 2017
the video of the release: https://psifidotos.blogspot.nl/2017/04/latte-dock-v06-fresh-air.html

demonstrates also adding applets and launchers... - Apr 02 2017
the dock needs to be built and installed... afterwards it runs with just executing 'latte-dock'.... Depending on your distro it may a package for 0.6 is already provided by it... Arch has already included 0.6 version and for openSUSE is just a matter of hours... - Apr 02 2017
drag n' drop from official plasma widgets explorer...

;) thank you!

I hope you found the "distance between icons" feature that is now supported... - Mar 30 2017
if you mean how far will be the icons between them, it doesnt offer this feature yet... - Mar 13 2017

it is a second latte panel... just import the latte layout file in Latte... It should provide you with that exact layout... If you have already tried and you still cant get transparency in Latte docks or panels make sure that compositing is activated... - May 29 2018
import the layout file from layouts editor - May 23 2018

Does Fedora provide a package for it?
If it does you can just right click on the desktop->Panels->Now Dock Default Panel

if it doesnt the only way is to install it from source...

as a notice Now Dock development has been stopped and all development efforts have moved to Latte Dock:
https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/

unfortunately Fedora has a bug for this according to reports from our user base of Latte and needs adjustments after installation... - Mar 13 2017
you need to use the python transparent panel gui to produce a plasma theme that has transparent panel at bottom (south)

https://dl.opendesktop.org/api/files/download/id/1481722071/plasma-transparent-panel.py.v0.2.2.tar.gz - Feb 26 2017
which distro are u using?

I think you need also, extra-cmake-modules - Jan 10 2017
Hello Python,

you can use the following for Feature Requests and Bugs, please report there:

https://github.com/psifidotos/nowdock-plasmoid/issues
https://github.com/psifidotos/nowdock-panel/issues

just try to create different issues for each bug or feature request... some of which you are mentioning are already implemented... for example different launchers per activity or global launchers...

currently I am working on adding some features in the core plasma codepage... I hope that before Plasma 5.9 release I will go for the following:

1. transparent panels independent of theme (this has already been merged in plasma for 5.9)
2. automatic resizing of the panel's height based on the user's choices
(zoom factor and icon size)
3. panel masking (real transparent panels - the mouse events are going to the windows below the panel in the areas that it is transparent) - Nov 13 2016
The plasmoid must be in the panel. What is missing I think is a plasma theme that is going to have that spesific panel transparent. You should use the following python script/gui:
https://dl.opendesktop.org/api/files/download/id/1473029935/plasma-transparent-panel.py.v0.2.2.tar.gz

extract it and click on transparent.sh, it should help you to create that special theme from any of your system's themes.

Important Notice: You must disable the Desktop Effects, Blur and Window Contrast after you enable the specialized theme
