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.

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.

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

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 ?
