" . . . what i do;
install awn and customize it to my needs,
install ubuntu tweak,
launch ubuntu tweak, click on the session setting, change gnome-panel to avant-window-navigator,apply,
log out and log in back. no need to "hide" gnome panel anymore. to revert it back, just replace to gnome-panel back. '
I tried it and decided I want the gnome panel back; but replacing avant-window-navigator with the former gnome-panel has not restored the gnome panel. What to do [short of reinstalling with my custom (remastersys) dvd]?
