Allow only one AWN instance

Bug #258675 reported by Bernhard on 2008-08-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
avant-window-navigator (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: avant-window-navigator

I noticed that awn and avant-window-navigator processes just keep piling up when I start Avant Window Navigator more than once. Couldn't awn be configured so that any new start of awn is treated as a restart? I guess there is no need to run awn more than once anyway.

I noticed that this bug is related to (and probably the deeper reason for) bug #257939.

I'm on Jaunty, using the AWN from the official repos (version 0.3.2-0ubuntu2) and have the same problems, specialy after adding something in the bar (launchers, applets etc) or sometimes after i close an app and the icon fades, after which it freezes (but this latter case is much more rare than the addition of items in the bar).

running this:
  gconftool-2 -g '/apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager'

returns 'false', i guess because there's no driver for the ATI graphic card on my laptop.
