Jan1109Jan 11, 09

This guide aims to be the most basic way to install a Mac-style dock on your Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon". Following these steps is easy and you will love the added functionality a dock provides. The dock you will be installing is called "Avant Window Navigator", and the installation instructions are as follows:

  1. Make sure you have your desktop effects level set to "Extra" or "Custom". You can check this by going to "System" -> "Preferences" -> "Appearance", and clicking the "Visual Effects" tab. "Extra" is a good choice if you have never heard of "Compiz".
  2. Now open a terminal window (press ALT+F2, then type gnome-terminal, then press ENTER). When the terminal window is loaded, type the following and then press ENTER:

    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    (you will be asked for your administrator password, which you set when you installed Ubuntu).
  3. A text editor will open, and you must add these two lines to the end of the document:

    deb gutsy avant-window-navigator
    deb-src gutsy avant-window-navigator
    ... then save the document, and close the text editor.
  4. The next part you should just copy and paste into that terminal window, then press ENTER once it appears to finish:

    sudo apt-key add reacocard.asc
    rm reacocard.asc
    sudo aptitude update
    (this downloads a "key" file, updates your keys list, and then deletes the "key" file)
  5. Finally, you must actually install Avant Window Navigator. Copy and paste this into the terminal window, then press ENTER:

    sudo aptitude install avant-window-navigator-bzr awn-core-applets-bzr
  6. You may run Avant Window Navigator by clicking on "Applications" -> "Accessories" -> "Avant Window Navigator".

Helpful Hint:

You can also choose to have Avant Window Navigator run when you start up your computer.
  1. Go to "System" -> "Preferences" -> "Sessions"
  2. Under the "Startup Options" tab, click the Add button
  3. Enter a name. For "Command", enter avant-window-navigator
  4. Click Ok, and then close the "Sessions" application
  5. Now Avant Window Navigator will start when your computer does.
