View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] AWN show desktop button?

April 30th, 2008, 08:37 PM
i just installed avant window navigator yesterday and ive been trying to figure out how to make a "show desktop" button

when i google for how to make a show desktop button all i can find is stuff to fix awn from minimizing when its pressed

i know its possible because ive seen screenshots with the show desktop button on awn

can anybody point me in the right direction please?

Right click AWN --> Preferences
Click on "Applets" on the left & just add the Show Desktop applet.

how do i add the show desktop applet?

i can only see one applet and it says
"Launcher/Taskmanager- The main Awn Launcher/Taskmanager applet"

Looks like you dont have the awn extras installed.
Did you install from the source or from the synaptics package manager?

yea i had installed from synaptec, but i figured out how to get applets ayway

first i had to enable theese repositories

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/reacocard-awn/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/reacocard-awn/ubuntu hardy main

theres a guide here
then i installed theese awn packages

sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator-bzr awn-core-applets-bzr awn-manager-bzr

now i have like 30 applets to choose from
