thanks for the reply Elisa, but I simply could not find package awn in the repository so it can not be installed on my lmde

or maybe awn has been withdrawn frm lmde repos?...hmmm :roll:

The Debian repos are currently missing a version in Testing. It is available from the unstable repo.
Code: Select all
apt-show-versions -a avant-window-navigator
Not installed
No testing version
avant-window-navigator 0.4.0-2.1 unstable mirrors.kernel.org
avant-window-navigator not installed


One of it's dependencies has a problem, preventing the dependency from migrating to testing, (which prevents awn from migrating).
It's for reasons like this that I run a (non-Mint) Debian testing/unstable mix. The "problem" in this case won't effect usability and you could safely install from unstable. However make sure that you know how to safely mix testing and unstable before you try, otherwise before you know it you'll find yourself running unstable rather than testing (nothing wrong with that, if that's what you want- but . . .).

I use the AWN Ubuntu PPA (naughty boy!) it works fine and is the most up to date:
Code: Select all
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/awn-testing/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

Add it to your /etc/apt/sources.list
