If you get everything (including awesome) from slackbuilds.org you should have no problems (he said hopefully).

The readme at sbo should say which deps you need.

Hmm well it hasn't been submitted/updated for 13.1 http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.0/desktop/awesome/

You could ask Chess about it in #slackbuilds on freenode.net perhaps

Maybe the 13.0 version will build but there's no guarantee. You might also need the deps from 13.0 also (listed in the readme). You can change the version in the build script and see how it works with which deps versions.

i'l leave the v13.0 just in case (no way to back up my system at the mo, need remastersys to be made compatible, i lack the skills needed to make a install/live copy, lol)
but hopefully someone my update it, my main trouble is getting the xcb package, applying the patch he mentions and the libxdg,
so to mildly rephrase could someone extent upon the said guide (noob-translate)

if you have a look at the sbo slackbuilds for awesome, you will notice that they are for version 2, not 3.

more details here http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6/#post3374657

hmm more keyboard based (i like clicking) perhaps awesome is not for me
the only reason i wanted it was that i heard it can auto tile like win7 never got tiling to work properly when i used compiz on buntu's,
cheers for the heads up, also would gdm be able to select your session or did that give you the same prob as kdm?

Awesome is kind of like hmm, what would happen if a user had to pretty much program their own window manager by hand. Its a bit insane. I am also trying to get it to compile on slack 13.1. I had managed to get Awesome3 one slack 13 previously, so I can help you with some weird problems maybe, but at the moment I'm having far weirder ones.

an update from salix's repo killed my xorg which gave me an excuse to add a fourth and final partition to my hd an install ubuntu lucid as i get my n900 tomorrow an would like to try making stuff for it, a friend gave me mag with a detailed guide to make a text editor for the device to start me off and it said a deb based distro was needed an a lucid disc was at hand, i installed awesome via that but it wasn't what i expected and froze a lot so i will stick with gnome on ubuntu and xfce on slack, well that is when i install slack back onto the first partition an figure out gettin them to dual boot and share my home partition
thank for the help i will leave this as unsolved so as eventually it can be made into a guide or something

for the record, you need to recompile the cairo package to include xcb support. I think that may be all, not completly sure. I use (and compile nearly daily) awesome but it's been a long time I had to adjust Slackware for it.

i've added blue tile to my buntu (still working on re-installing slack an dual booting) and i'm quite liking it my preffered environment would have to be a mix between xfce and bluetile combined into one (currently gnome+bluetile on buntu), off to google xmonad

Hi,

I've tried recompiling cairo with xcb enabled, but when I try to build awesome (v. 3.4.7), it still complains about missing cairo-xcb. Does anybody know how to fix this - or alternatively where I can find a slackbuild for awesome on slack 13.1?
