I would like to have different settings for the dock behavior for different workspaces, or more likely i would like the dock that i use now , awn (Avant window navigator) to show up in just 3 of the four workspaces i have.

So the question is : can i run different instances of awn one on each workspace

or can i run it just on one work space and maybe use something else like cario for the next workspace.

any ideas?

you can edit a script that change your AWN's gconfs, for example change your dock behavior from "intellihide/panel-mode" to "autohide" so you no longer see it.. then you can add it to your dock as a "simple launcher" entry..

this is a script i've done to move my wingpanel and my dock to the left, resizing them to 20px and forcing them to auto hide.. it works like a switch so re-launching it makes everything back to normal..

hope it helps..
