I need some help with Plank dock

I’d like to add the KDE “application menu” to it,
and also a shut down/restart/sleep icons(or an all inclusive widget for power/session)or maybe the “Leave”(ctrl+alt+del) button.

this is how a “Docklet” file(plain text doc.) looks like:
name of file : firefox.dockitem
inside the file:


i didn’t manage to find where the files i needed are located.
i found something in /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.lock_logout/
and in /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.appmenu/
but didn’t manage to make it work.

you can use the latte dock wherein you can use the application dashboard widget.

i already tried Latte,but i have an issue with it where if i add the power/session buttons to the favorites,it doesn’t stay there after a reboot,and also i find Plank more pleasing to the eyes.

add kde tag to your post too

i found this tutorial for xfce,but i don’t know where to find the exec= in KDE.
i think that i need the one for plasma-applet-org.kde.plasma.simplemenu

nvm,i went back to Latte dock.
