> Installing Latte Dock
Warning: The version needed for these layouts to work properly is the Git version of Latte Doc; This Git version brings extra functions that the normal version does not have, such as floating dock, rounded corners, the Sidebar Widget, etc ...
So in the normal versions of the repositories, non-Git version, these functions will have no effect and the Layout will not work correctly, for this reason it is necessary to install the Git version of Latte Dock.

So I will leave instructions for installation in Manjaro KDE and OpensSUSE KDE, and for installation in Kubuntu and KDE Neon I will leave the link for the Latte Dock repository on GitHub where the compilation instructions are.
