    seperate taskmanger and launcer for AVN

    I've just started using Avant Window Navigator, and I'm wanting to get rid of the default Ubuntu bar, but as you can see in the photo there's a problem, the launcher and the task manager don't separate their contents, so I have to keep the window list up, is there a way of installing a separate Avant task manager or launcher?
    just want launcher stuff on one side and what's currently running on the other side.

    Re: seperate taskmanger and launcer for AVN

    one solution if anyone knows how to do it, is that I have seperate docks, one on the bottom and one on the top
    if I could tell the top one to have launcher only, and the bottom to have task manager, then that would work
    problem is if u right click on the top one, change it's settings, those settings changes are shared by both top and bottom

    To get a launcher only on the top dock, add a "Simple launcher" applet, then drag and drop some apps onto the dock.

    So, essentially, you want AWN to not act like a dock? = ) But yeah, if you use Simple Launcher for your launchers and then remove the launchers from the taskbar applet, that seems to accomplish what you want.

    this is natural, earlier i used to use 3 AWN docks, bottom left / center / right to separate start menu, places / launchers /logout,battery,weather etc for left center and right.

    i could not set different settings for different AWN as AWN doesnt seem to run as multiple process (am i technically right?)

    i havent tried another option, use 2 different docks for 2 different purposes ! one at top and one at bottom (Docky customization is not as cool as AWN though and cairo uses unnecessary system resources!)
    Ubuntu + Linux = UbunTux !!! Gr8 combo !!!
