i have 11.4 with GNOME3 installed, i can run AWN fine, but i cant open the settings panel, i get this error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/awn-settings", line 53, in <module>

ImportError: could not import gobject (could not find _PyGObject_API object)

Anyone else recieve this error? And how can i fix this?

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.
