Install Plank on Fedora 27 won’t work

Unfortunately, Plank only supports X11 environment. Since Fedora 27 uses Wayland, this won’t work. Nothing happened when we tried to open Plank. In Terminal, I got the following error:

[root@localhost-live Downloads]# plank
[CRITICAL 03:00:24.757482] [GLib-GIO] g_dbus_proxy_new_sync: assertion 'G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)' failed
[WARN 03:00:24.757612] [Environment:161] XDG_SESSION_CLASS not set in this environment!
[CRITICAL 03:00:24.757672] [AbstractMain:257] Only X11 environments are supported.

Well, that is too bad. We will update this post once we have the solution or alternative way to install Plank on Fedora 27.
