    AWN 3.9 Avant Window Navigator Multiple Monitors

    Posting this in a new thread.

    Anyone know how to get AWN to run on two monitors? I want a bar on each monitor.

    I used to be able to start two instances using a shell script below but that doesn't seem to be working now.

    killall avant-window-navigator
    sleep 4
    DISPLAY=:0.0 avant-window-navigator &
    sleep 4
    DISPLAY=:0.1 avant-window-navigator &
    Playing around more with this and it looks like avant no checks to see if there is another instance running and will not start if there is. That is a bummer. Any way to change this?

    dccrens@cavermax-ubuntu:~$ DISPLAY=:0.0 avant-window-navigator &
    [1] 15569
    ** (avant-window-navigator:15569): WARNING **: Another instance of Awn is running

    [1]+ Done DISPLAY=:0.0 avant-window-navigator

    I realize this is over a month old now, but I'm having the same issue and was wondering if you, or anyone else, has come up with a solution.

    I have two monitors using separate x screens, and I would like a dock on each monitor.

    Using separate x screens means that I can't drag and drop windows from one screen to the other, so I really need a dock on each monitor...or I could just leave the panels on the second monitor, but I would rather use the dock.

    Not AWN but with GLX-Dock you can have several main docks without needing to launch it several times (which would be a waste).
    Refresh your desktop with GLX-Dock !
