You can find the command in gconf-editor > Panel > Applets

The latest version of AWN from their repos has a a show desktop applet inlcuded. Cathbard has a nice how-to for installing it here http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopi ... awn#p93626.

To make a force quit, the command 'xkill' would do a reasonable job.

'xkill" command worked perfectly but in the main panel but not in the AWN ! do you know why?

I need the desktop command that i can put directly in the laucher comman box!
