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 ?
- Install avant-window-navigator and awn-manager from synaptic
- Install xcompmgr from synaptic
- Disable your desktop effect
- Press alt+F2 and type : xcompmgr -c -f -n
- Try to running your avant-window-navigator
If that step successfull, you can go to the next step.
- Put your xcompmgr -c -f -n command to your desktop session (System – Preference – Sessions)
- Also put your avant-window-navigator to your desktop session
Let’s try it. 🙂
