AWN and panels
So, once again I'm finding something simple I can't seem to get to work.
I bought the other half an Acer laptop a while back (P200, 4GB 1333 RAM, not a bad little work machine) and was convinced to get rid of the GNOME 3 desktop - I guess she changed her mind about the shell and the fallback all the sudden, and likes unity but loves her mac.
So, I decided xubuntu would run like a boss on this thing and war far from wrong - it's been the smoothest experience I've had since Lucid on any laptop, with any distro, or any remix. I'm almost convinced to switch to it later.
Anyway though, the meat of my issue. I got rid of the bottom panel they made look and feel kind of like a dock and replaced it with an actual dock with AWN (I remember loving this back in karmic days).
I know how to remove the top panel too, but I can't yet since she doesn't like the CTRL+ALT+<left, right, up, down> to navigate a workspace nor remapping it to a simple SUPER-direction. She, and i , like a preview for them but both AWN's switcher don't work, and neither show a preview...
Anyone else have a fix for this? I can change I suppose to Docky or Cairo, but AWN is light and fast and looks a little better than docky...
The only thing stopping the removal of the top panel is that switcher.
