Thanks for the bug report.

As the message say, avant-window-navigator can't be remove with add/remove menu because there is some depends on it than can't be handle by gnome-app-install (the software behind Add/Remove menu). Please use Synaptic to remove it. If you think it's a bug anyway, please report a bug against gnone-app-install instead.

Changed in avant-window-navigator:
status: New → Invalid

My steps were basically: Install through gnome-app-install, try to start awn, concluding that it won't work without compiz, trying to uninstall through gnome-app-install.

So obviously a bug in some way, probably dependendecy handling then.

Adding gnome-app-install.
