AWN manager - Launch er preferences window

Asked by Gibby on 2008-06-13

Firstly thanks for the help so far as a newbie I feel safe in all of your hands...

I have added some applets to the bar and they seem to work great - the shiny switcher plays up sometimes but for now it's not a big problem :-)

My problem is this - I have dragged the FF icon onto the bar and the launcher is there for FF - great - Click and FF opens :-)

HOWEVER after I restart - it has gone :-(


I have 2 entries in the Launcher Preferences (add and remove launchers) both look like gear wheels - grey

I can NOT remove them with - REMOVE nothing happens when you highlight the line and click

When you click EDIT the Launcher Editor opens and they are empty

What are these entries ?

How can I delete them ?

How can I get an application to stay AFTER I reboot?

Thanks in advance, Gibby

Launcher added successfully by dragging from the application menu. I dragged FF and works fine and appears in the launcher window of the AWN Manager


I still have those 2 grey gear entries - How do I delete them, and what are they ?

When I reboot the bar did not appear on the bottom of my screen I had to click Applications >> Accessories AWN Manager to load it...

What is the problem here ?

I have it set to Auto Start on login :-(

Thanks, Gibby

See if you have them in ~/.config/awn/launchers
The .config folder should be in your Home folder. It is a hidden folder, so you may have to press Ctrl+H after opening your home folder to make it visible.

Can you help with this problem?
