Avant Window Navigator 4.1

Postby Sphaerophoria » Mon Apr 18, 2011 7:08 pm

I was just wondering if anyone had found a way to get Avant Window Navigator version 0.4.1 running on my LMDE install and can't find it anywhere. I installed it from hadret's experimental repo but the launcher kept crashing. Any help would be appreciated. THANKS

this version is very unstable, so unstable, that is not in the repos of the distribution with the packages most up-to-date in the Linux world:
Arch Linux

[gnomi777@archg777 ~]$ yaourt -Ss avant-window-navigator
community/avant-window-navigator 0.4.0-10
Fully customisable dock-like window navigator for GNOME
community/awn-extras-applets 0.4.0-8
A collection of applets for avant-window-navigator
aur/avant-window-navigator-bzr 829-2 (297)
Fully customisable dock-like window navigator
aur/avant-window-navigator-kde 0.4.0-1 (2)

For Debian will a take long time, because is not in the experimental and unstable repos.

It is available for Ubuntu and derivatives like Mint, but it is a PPA source, which Debian does not accept. I guess all of us who use LMDE at least part of the time will have to wait for the stable release of AWN 4.1 to be added to the Debian repos.

As to stability, I have been using AWN 4.1 on Mint Main Edition for over two months without a single problem.
