Bug Description

Installed from Universe repo. The GUI doesn't respond or offer an error when I click on 'Dock Preferences'. In the console, running awn-settings, I get:

** Message: pygobject_register_sinkfunc is deprecated (AwnOverlay)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/awn-settings", line 1371, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/awn-settings", line 1365, in main
    awnmanager = awnManagerMini(panel_id)
  File "/usr/bin/awn-settings", line 1123, in __init__
  File "/usr/bin/awn-settings", line 1260, in createMainMenu
TypeError: value is of wrong type for this column

I can confirm this as well. It affects both -bzr803 from natty repository version and -bzr818 from awn-testing ppa.

As a workaround until this is fixed:

- Open /usr/bin/awn-settings in a text editor, e.g.:
    gksu gedit /usr/bin/awn-settings

- On line 1255, change
    store = gtk.ListStore(str, gtk.gdk.Pixbuf, str)
    store = gtk.ListStore(str, gtk.gdk.Pixbuf, int)

Works like a charm afterwards for me.

Confirmed, works too.

Thanks for the fix. Could you provide a patch or a debdiff ? Or I'll do it later.

There you go. I've never created a patch before, so I hope this helps :)

Anyone who wants to apply the patch before a fix is released, do something like this in your terminal:

sudo patch -p0 -d /usr/bin < awn-settings.patch

Thanks, you can also do a more readable patch by using "diff -Nur". It's easier to review this format of patch :)
