Once I install Mint 13 MATE 64-bit (and after a sudo apt-get update to get Synaptic working properly) I install the avant-window-navigator via Synaptic.
Installation appears to go smoothly.
When I reboot I lose any semblance of Mint and go into a blue screen with only a basic AWN dock present at the bottom.
I've looked everywhere for a solution to this, and I can't be the only person with this problem.
Somewhere, I remember seeing that this is due to a gnome dependency with AWN.
Is there something I have failed to do?
I might also add that I tried to do it after installing compiz with the same effect (although I'm not entirely sure if compiz initiated properly as it would appear there are no default effect settings).
I also attempted to do it after I (apparently) had successfully installed nVidia drivers.
I keep installing from scratch and trying again....but no luck.
Is it some mate-config thing?
Can anyone please help me?
I am desperate to get this working.
