Installing OS Elementary Features on another distro

If you would like to have the “plank” version of Docky on your DIstro, here are some ideas on how you can go about it:

To build Plank, you will need to install the following packages:

intltool (>= 0.35)
valac (>= 0.14.1)
libbamf3-dev (>= 0.2.94)
libdbusmenu-gtk3-dev (>= 0.6.2) (optional)
libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev (>= 2.26.0)
libgee-dev (>= 0.5.2)
libglib2.0-dev (>= 2.32.0)
libgtk-3-dev (>= 3.0.0)

Use the Synaptic Package manager to find out if you have these.
