How to fix Ubuntu dock still visible while screen is locked on 18.04 and 18.10

A very stupid bug that has been there for quite a while! Luckilly the fix has been released recently into the proposed repository for both Bionic & Cosmic (Disco as well).

Just enable the proposed updates from Software & Updates -> Developer Options -> Pre-released updates, then run the following commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock

Hit Alt+F2, write r and then press Enter (works for Xorg only, not Wayland)

Enjoy!
