Have you installed libxdg? edit: obviously you have.

Have a look at this tutorial.

@sycamorex actually i'm following ur tutorial and everything was ok ,, and when i reached step "4" in ur tutorial and i run "make" i got that error
-- package 'xcb-util>=0.3.8' not found
-- package 'xcb-icccm>=0.3.8' not found

then i upgraded "xcb-util-0.3.6" to "xcb-util-0.3.8",, then run make again ,, but still have -- package 'xcb-icccm>=0.3.8' not found

and i think i've installed libxdg correctly

Weird. What's the output of:
Code:
ls /var/log/packages | grep xcb*
I was about to build it myself on a clean Slackware system to check it but slackware.com is down and don't have any mirrors bookmarked. Once it's up again, I'll try to build it in a virtual machine.

Ok, you've got 2 installs of xcb-util. Can you make sure that you've only got one installed (ideally the one that came with Slackware) Why did you have to upgrade it?

Looks like it has been split out you need to get "xcb-util-wm"

http://xcb.freedesktop.org/dist/xcb-...-0.3.8.tar.bz2

i checked /var/log/packages , found "xcb-util-0.3.6-i486-1" installed ,, and i thought that awesome needs the higher version.

i removed "xcb-util-0.3.8-i486" and run make again but got the same error missing the two
-- package 'xcb-util>=0.3.8' not found
-- package 'xcb-icccm>=0.3.8' not found

idontcare: Your ls listing shows you have both versions installed.

After you remove the old version of xcb-util you will need to reinstall the new version and you will need the new package I posted previously as it contains the icccm-xcb lib.

do i get that right ?
1- uninstall xcb-util-0.3.6-i486-1 <- came with slack
2- install xcb-util-0.3.8-i486 <- the new version
3- build and install xcb-util-wm-0.3.8.tar.bz2

Your order is correct

You may also need to upgrade other parts of xcb, if you get any configure errors get the upgraded parts from here :-
