Now you can fully replace the GNOME panels with Avant Window Navigator. The latest AWN trunk build adds Indicator Applet support.
Like we told you a while back, the latest AWN also includes the new Lucido style:
To install the latest AWN trunk in Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10, simply paste this in a terminal (before this, make sure you don't have avant-window-navigator from the official Ubuntu repositories installed):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:awn-testing/ppa && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator-trunk awn-applets-c-core-trunk awn-applets-c-extras-trunk awn-applets-python-core-trunk awn-applets-python-extras-trunk
Once installed, to add the Indicator Applet to Avant Window Navigator, simply go to AWN Preferences, on the Applets tab, under "Utility" you should see a new item called "Indicator Applet" - simply add it to your dock.
