My New Ubuntu Dock

For anyone who prefers a dock over the boring default panel at the bottom of your screen, let me introduce the Avant Window Navigator (AWN):

Install: sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator

To check it out after you install it, hit Alt-F2 and type in 'avant-window-navigator'.

You can set AWN to run automatically on login, just go to System > Preferences > Sessions. And then click 'Add,' and type in the command that runs your program (i.e. 'avant-window-navigator'), as shown below:

Get Rid of Bottom Panel
Like it? Want to get rid of the default Ubuntu panel at the bottom? Just Right Click > Delete This Panel.

Note: If you ever want to reset your gnome panels:
  1. rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
  2. Log out, and log back in.
