Before now, I've used the method described here
to modify my desktop to start AWN rather than GNOME Panel. Seeing as the gconf key is no longer present in Linux Mint 11, how can I modify my user's desktop to start AWN rather than GNOME Panel in a way that's friendly to other users of the machine?
I know that I could
Code: Select all
sudo chmod -x /usr/bin/gnome-panel
to "get rid of it," but I'd like a scalpel and not a nuclear bomb in this case. Is there a way to change the startup for this particular user to replace the call to "/usr/bin/gnome-panel" with "/usr/bin/avant-window-navigator"?
