I know that you've switched to KDE4 some time ago, but was it normal in new AWN that it needs restart after most configuration changes?
Besides that, it's good. Tray is finally useful.
narf41's avatar
hmmm, no, i never restarted awn after new config. which version is installed?
weakhead's avatar
Well, nevermind that. AWN 0.3.9 (future 0.4) requires libdesktop-agnostic package, which can be compiled to use different backend. I had keyfile backend enabled, which was causing troubles. Gconf backend works well.
narf41's avatar
hehe that´s fine :)
weakhead's avatar
Actually, this behavior is dependent on libdesktop-agnostic backend. Gconf backend works as it should.

how'd you get the wireless signal applet in awn? i dont find it in AWN applets listing with extras added.

also, get pandora radio applet working?
narf41's avatar
no, the wireless signal isn´t an extra applet, it is in my tray :)

i tried pandora radio, it doesn´t work

How did you move the tray over to the left side? My applets seem to be fixed centered.
narf41's avatar
i included the spacer applet between launcher/taskbar and the other aplplets and set the dock style to panel
lennartb's avatar
Doh, typo. Meant right side of course.

Very nice! Love the choice of colours. I would use "tabs" for the dock icons and maybe neodesktop's wallpapers. Have a look at some of my screenshots or neodesktop's page ([link])!
narf41's avatar
thx a lot :)
well, i´ll think about the tab icons :)
and you´re right, neodesktops wp´s are really nice. i´m really sad, that his 2 best wp´s are for apple (appleMagic and appleBeast) :(

Any Idea how to remove the Selected color around the icon? I tried looking in gconf but it's overwhelming.
narf41's avatar
no, sorry, i haven´t any idea too :(
