Asked by clairvoyant on 2012-07-23

A few days ago, I installed AWN = Avant Window Navigator
In default, there are 5 themes available to choose
But no matter which theme choosen, it only reset the dock's and the icon's size to default size.
Regarding to the dock colour ... it's always WHITE.

I also tried to set the Style to 3D with the following settings:

* Size of Icon: 32
* Orientation: Bottom
* Style: 3D
* Behaviour: Intelihide
* Autohide mode: Fade Out
* Icon Effects: Simple
* Start AWN automatically ... dicentang.
Task Manager ... marked only for the following sections:
* Display launchers only
* Drag and Drop reordering
* Group common Windows
* Panel - Offset: 10
* Panel - Clicktrough: 0
* Panel - Monitor X & Y-offset ... 0
* Task Managers - Matching Strength ... 99
* Effects - Reflection offset ... 0
* Effects - Icon alpha ... 1.000
* Effects - Reflection alpha .... 0.300
=== Please help to check out whether there are a mis-setting which caused the problem to occured.
