    Cool Bottom Dock thingy majiger...

    Hello everyone. when i first installed ubuntu 8.10, there was 2 "bars" i really don't know what to call them. There was one on top with all the menus n' stuff, and there was one on bottom. The one on bottom was pretty lame and really didn't do much so i got rid of it, but i saw some people's pics of their desktop and they had some sort of Macintosh dock on the bottom. I have never used a mac so i don't know what to call them but it was basically just a dock on the bottom with a lot of quick launch programs. My question is how does one get that on their desktop. Or does it come with a downloaded theme? thank you!!

    search synaptic for avant window manager. I think that is what you are talking about.

    In a terminal, type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator

    I've always preferred Cairo-Dock to AWN.

    Cairo-dock: http://prdownload.berlios.de/cairo-d...6.3.1_i686.deb

    Cairo-dock plug-ins: http://prdownload.berlios.de/cairo-d...6.3.1_i686.deb

    Cairo-dock (extra) themes: http://prdownload.berlios.de/cairo-d....6.3.1.tar.bz2

    You can run it at start up by adding the command "cairo-dock" to your System > Preferences > Sessions, and you can change theme and preferences once it has started by right clicking on it and from there it's pretty intuitive =)
