Ubuntu with AWN without COMPIZ ???
Yes, u can use AWN without enabling your compiz. In the latest builds of ubuntu, u can adjust compositing setting.
First, u need to install gconf-editor. and offcourse metacity (installed by default on ubuntu)…. 😀
u can install gconf editor using the following command on your terminal.
# sudo apt-get install gconf-editor
After installing, open the run menu (Alt+F2) and type gconf-editor.
look in apps/metacity/general
and check for the compositing_manager then Close.
for the AWN, I suggest u to use the Intrepid repository and enable the universe. or u can use the PPA Launchpad repo.
u can install it using this following command on terminal.
# sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator awn-manager awn-applets-c-core awn-applets-c-extrasawn-applets-python-core awn-applets-python-extras
