Today Im going to show you an easy way on how to install AWN a really cool dock, is just another cool application to use with Compiz Fusion, kind of like the one Mac has. Is call Avant Window Manager or just AWN is afor the Linux desktop that positions itself at the bottom of the screen and displays the task list, launchers, and other applets. It can be used to keep track of open windows and behaves like a normal window list.
In our new version of Ubuntu AWN is included in the repository. This is the easiest way and the recommended one for most users to use.
1. – Adding repository
First go to System>Administration>Software Sources
After Synaptic Manager is open click on third party software and add this two lines
Save and exit.
2. – Install AWN Manager
Open a terminal and type
sudo apt-get install awn-manager-trunk awn-extras-applets-trunk
Once that is done Go to Applications>Accesories>Avant Window Manage. One more thing AWN appears at the bottom of the screenfor that reason you should delete the bottom panel so it will look cool with nothing of the bottom but the dock.
Also you can cuztomize it for that you need to go to System>Preferences>AWN Manager
You can go here to download themes, plugins , applets
I hope this was helpful. Enjoy
