Is Avant Window Navigator Available For Ubuntu 14.04?


If you check launchpad you will see that AWN Testing has support for 13.10, 13.04 and 12.04. So no 14.04.

You have 2 options:

  • wait for them to update to 14.04.

  • install the 13.10 or 12.04 versions of AWN. You can do this by opening "software&updates" and editing the source list for AWN. If you change the distribution name you can install it from the older repositories. Mind you: it is possible. If it is wise I'll let you decide (mixing distributions can make a mess of your system).

Started using Linux and StackExchange since Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Then Upgraded to 14.04 LTS. Now I am using Debian GNU/Linux on my Laptop and PureOS on old Desktop computer. I recommend visiting the Philosophy of GNU Project As I've replaced Ubuntu with Debian GNU/Linux, Now my question(s) are became off-topic on AskUbuntu. So, I continue to Unix & Linux. The second reason for my shifting to U & L is I found U & L more interesting than AU since AU is only Ubuntu specific whereas U & L is a broad concept and in my opinion U & L deserves generic questions. (I know why SE has AU & U & L both).

    I want to install avant-window-navigator on Ubuntu 14.04. I tried to install by following command:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:awn-testing/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator

    But sudo apt-get update getting Error:

    W: Failed to fetch  404  Not Found

    and sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator getting error:

    E: Unable to locate package avant-window-navigator

    So, Is AWN Available for 14.04 on any New PPA? Or Should I Avoid Installing avant-window-navigator?
