Hi,

this would only work as an option, because it conflicts with click-to-view-subdocks:

the idea is to open the home folder by clicking on the shortcut icon. This would make sense since it is probably one of the most used shortcuts.
I have the shortcut-plugin displaying bookmarks only, since all the partitions are just cluttering up the space and I never use nautilus to visit / anyway...
So for me accessing home on click would be great. What do you think?

actually the middle click is used to show the desktop.
it might be replaced to open the home, but what about adding your home as a bookmark ?
(PS : left click can't be used, because as you noticed it would conflict with the opening of the sub-dock)

Yes, I have Home as a bookmark already - just thought it would be a intuitive way to open home on click. If you chose to open sub-docks by hovering, it would not conflict..
Did not know the show-desktop middleclik - nice!

-1, because then the behavior is not consistent (it depends on an external option, and this is not obvious for the user; if he wants to open the sub-dock on click, then he will have the same problem as you now )
what we can do is to propose 2 actions on middle click and let the user choose. but then of course you only have one of them.

Yes but why not using an action on the left click and mentioned that it doesn't work if the user wants to open sub-dock on click ?

to keep consistency
you should have the same behavior however your dock is configured. plus, it will solve the problem for half of the users, so the problem remain present.
