AWN without Desktop Effect

Some of older hardware cannot activated Desktop Effect on BlankOn/Ubuntu. Some times with new hardware, we do not need desktop effect. But we need Avant-Window-Navigator as a docker for our desktop. So how to use AWN without activating desktop effect ?

  1. Install avant-window-navigator and awn-manager from synaptic
  2. Install xcompmgr from synaptic
  3. Disable your desktop effect
  4. Press alt+F2 and type : xcompmgr -c -f -n
  5. Try to running your avant-window-navigator

If that step successfull, you can go to the next step.

  1. Put your xcompmgr -c -f -n command to your desktop session (System – Preference – Sessions)
  2. Also put your avant-window-navigator to your desktop session

Let’s try it. 🙂
