AWN 0.3.2 + Metacity + Lenny

Three days ago, AWN 0.3.2 was released. Looked at the screen-shots, one thing graped my attention, the notification area applet (system tray). I was using the official Lenny deb that does not contain that applet. I really want to have that notification area applet so I decided to compile the latest release from source. Thanks to the great documentation provided (it even list out all dependent debian packages required to built it), the compilation went through smoothly.

Now, I’ve been running the self-compiled AWN for a few days and it works great! My AWN’s notification area applet is a bit ugly compare to the one below:

If anyone know how to make (configure) it look better, please let me know.๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi there!

    The notification area applet uses your GTK theme colors (the screenshot was made while using Ubuntu’s Darkroom theme), and there’s no way to change that currently, if you’d like to configure the colors try using PyNot instead, where you can configure almost everything.
