Hey!

I'm trying to install the awn-extras-applets-trunk for my avant-window-navigator. I have followed all the install settings on this homepage: http://wiki.awn-project.org/Awn_Extras:Installation, but when I try to install it, it's some kind of dependency problem.

When i try to install awn-extras-applets-trunk, it is dependent of libawn0-trunk, which sure is a big problem, since when I want to install libawn0-trunk, it wants to remove the original avant-window-navigator package.

And if I let it remove it, and try to add avant-window-navigator again, it removes libawn0-trunk. So, what's going on? Why havent I seen this problem before, been googling it for a while now, without help.

Well, thx in regard.

Btw. Im using Hardy Heron.

Me too. Have you guys tried to just do it and see if it works out?

To get the applets to work you need to uninstall the awn from the repositories and use this guide. https://launchpad.net/~reacocard-awn/+archive

This is a newer version of AWN that actually supports applets (unlike the one in the repositories which is window list only)

I tried it, but the repositories are so slow I gave up.

don't give up - awn is pretty nice, once you have applets available. i have the gmail notification, dilbert, audio, weather, systray, clock, logout, trash, main menu, and stacks (curved menu like os/x) applets on my awn dock. make sure you have compiz fusion enabled first though.

The issue is that you can only have 1 version on your comp: the ones that end in trunk or the other ones, not both. So remove the old stuff (not trunk ones) and then add the equivalent trunk ones back.

I removed the old version, but these repositories-

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

are so slow it was impossible to download the new version. I
will stay with the old one for now.

You need to use the AWN testing team repositories for the trunk ones. The only issue is that there are updates VERY often. The reqd repos for Hardy:


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

They are pretty fast and there should not be any problems.

Cheers.

Same problem here. Was about to give up when i saw that the install went form 16 to 21 percent.
Was using this guide :
http://linuxhelp.blogspot.com/2008/02/cool-awn-applets-to-adorn-your-ubuntu.html
this is my output so far, synaptic refuses to install it so i swutched to aptitude:


reyn@reyn-desktop:~$ sudo aptitude install awn-core-applets-bzr

It was still very slow, over an hour on DSL, but was worth the wait.=D>
