don't know about avant, but you should try ' GLX-Dock/Cairo-Dock ' !

just compile from source

works perfect !

make sure you have the file:


in /usr/local/portage/dev-libs/gir-repository/files/ :!: :idea:

alternatively emerge it from kist-overlay (and remove the one from your local overlay)

I've managed to compile it successfully by taking the live ebuilds from desktop-effects overlay, and simply changing the source URI to the stable 0.4.0 awn and awn-extras links from the launchpad site. No problems so far .. You should maybe try this to avoid probs with dependencies.
