Normally we can pin items to the dock by right clicking the item and selecting keep in dock. But for gnome terminal, I won't see the keep in dock option. How can I fix that? I run plank in Fedora 24.

Its a bug with recent versions of gnome-terminal and it effects pretty much all docks (I use Docky). I had to create my own .desktop file for gnome-terminal and now it works. Create a file called gnome-terminal.desktop with these contents:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=GNOME Terminal
GenericName=Command Line Terminal Program
Comment=gnome-terminal is the terminal emulator for GNOME3
Exec=gnome-terminal %U

And put it in /usr/share/applications/ or ~/.local/share/applications/. Restart or logout and back in.
