AWN Dock AWN Main Menu applet : could not create applet
 
Hello,

I've installed avant-window-navigator along with awn-extras-applets, but the Awn Main Menu applet crashes. When I run it from terminal, the error i get is

Code:

** (avant-window-navigator:1031): DEBUG: Spawned awn-applet[1052] for "main-menu.desktop", UID: 1314967229, XID: 31457328

** (awn-applet:1052): WARNING **: Unable to find settings.menu

** (awn-applet:1052): WARNING **: Could not create applet!

Where should i find this settings.menu ?

Thanks.

Do you run compiz? AWN is requiring compiz.

tiekookeit 09-04-2011 08:29 AM

What distro? Have you installed all packages for awn suite?

packages on debian for example

avant-window-navigator
avant-window-navigator-data
awn-applets-common
awn-settings
libawn1
python-awn
python-awn-extras
awn-applets-c-core
awn-applets-c-extras
awn-applets-common
awn-applets-python-core
awn-applets-python-extras

AMA 09-04-2011 07:24 PM

I'm running arch, and yes i am running compiz. Well i think i've installed all packages for awn i've installed
_awn-extras-applets
_awn-extras-menus
_avant-window-navigator
plus all the dependencies.

tiekookeit 09-05-2011 06:07 AM

awn-settings?

what

dpkg -l | grep awn
dpkg -l | grep avant

shows?

And the only packages i've installed are those mentioned before.

PS: i downloaded dpkg on my arch and your two commands show nothing. Have I missed something ?

Thanks by the way for your help.

I cant see a configuration package, as show in my instalation awn-settings

AMA 09-06-2011 10:05 AM

I dont' think there's a settings package, because when i right click on the dock and select dock preferences, i fall on an 'Awn Settings' window.

tiekookeit 09-07-2011 02:39 PM

You do run awn, You just cant run when you launch it on the terminal, right?

If it is so, what export shows on your terminal, and what shell are you using

AMA 09-07-2011 05:46 PM

As said in my first post, the only applet which doesn't run is the awn main menu, besides that awn runs fine. I ran it from terminal just to know where the error came from, and (cf 1st post) the error was unable to find settings.menu. So my question was and is where can i find this settings.menu ?

tiekookeit 09-08-2011 06:20 AM

I dont have this file on my system or my home either

locate *.menu

/etc/mc/cedit.menu
