    Having the same problem here. OpenSUSE 11.4 with Gnome 3. AWN runs but cant execute the dock preferences.

    That is most likely because awn wasn't compiled against the gobject-introspection used on the GNOME:STABLE:3.0 repository. Having it compiled against it will most likely fix that issue.
