Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Not really. Someone said something about how hard or impossible is to get Awesome on Slack so I had to try. But if I was considering a tiling wm, I would probaly choose Awesome: default config is more than reasonable for beginners and I am more familiar with Luad than Haskell.
But thanks for the suggestion anyways.

If you're getting into tiling WMs like Awesome, I would go for xmonad - it's far more configurable, and I find it a lot more easy to use.
I guess it's a matter of preference. I found i3 more configurable (to suit my needs) than xmonad (and it doesn't depend on ghc). i3wm v4.x has a very clean config file and the idea of containers, as well as its tiling/tabbed/stacked modes give you freedom and endless possibilities in terms of window management (especially when you combine the two).
Damn it, too late, just building the SlackBuild, just looked over the manual for configuration and wondered if it was so easy to configure the last time I tried. Can I build the 4.x with the SlckBuild script?
As far as I remember, yes you can. There's just one small change:
Change the following line:
DEPENDS LICENSE TODO GOALS docs/* \
DEPENDS LICENSE GOALS docs/* \
If, by any chance, you want to look at my config, I could upload it.
Thanks, I just tried it and stumbled about that error, that it can't find TODO. No need for the config now, will at first try to "translate" my current wmii config, then go on from there.
Where would be the fun if I go pre-configured.
Just one more thing: When it comes to i3status. You could stick to version 2.1 which is available from slackbuilds.org. In that case you need to make sure that the option output_format = none. Otherwise I’d recommend installing i3status 2.4.
