try compiling it from source.

windowmaker.org

Its pretty easy to compile.


If you want Anti Aliased fonts or Xinerama support, pick up the CVS version, otherwise just get .80.2

CVS = concurrent versions system. Its complicated, but for you, it means your getting the bleeding edge developers release.


Why not post the compile errors?

Depending on your terminal you can either select and DRAG the information into the place you want to paste or you have some shortcut like Ctrl + Shift + C , as I have it. You can configure that in your terminal's properties

try using the Gnome or KDE Console, they allow cutting/pasting.
