salut teegoat smile
so, you've downloaded the archive, extracted it, and ran make... what did your console said ??

*edit*
la version deb (3.4.6) te suffirait pas par hasard??? ce serait plus simple.... un ptit 'sudo apt-get install awesome' et hop big_smile

Magnifique, je vois je peux pratiquer mon francais ici:)
Oui, je vais installer statler dans quelques jours et je pense je vais l'adorer:))))
Ok, I managed to get through the chaos of missing dependencies, I run make, it gets 3% and then gives me this outcome:

Scanning dependencies of target awesome
[  3%] Building C object CMakeFiles/awesome.dir/awesome.c.o
In file included from /data/Awesome/awesome-3.4.7/awesome.c:51:

make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/awesome.dir/all] Error 2
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [cmake-build] Error 2

Gee, it's real challenge for me as I'm still just a beginner, but through stuff like that I learn a lot...
@ arpinux: By the way, you are running AWM 3.4.6 in statler now? What are your impressions?

in fact, i'm using WMFS as tiling wm because the configs are text files, awesome config is lua code (and i'm not so god on lua..). but i have to say that awesome 3.4.6 is a very good wm: fast, light, crashfree (for what i saw..tested with dual monitor), and works fine with statler, you should give it a try smile

Re: Awesome 3.4.7 + #! 9.04 - anybody tried it yet? I need help installing

I was trying to implement Awesome and then xmonad but I didn't manage to. Well, I installed xmonad from the repos, but now have to do all the reading because at the moment it just gives me a blank screen with the pointer - nothing else I can do. It's ver 0.8 - I have the latest v 0.9.1 but i cannot build it:( Same with Awesome - cannot build it. I' pretty vexed at the moment, I've put Mb worth of dependencies for nothing. Damn;) I'm afraid that it's out of my league at the moment and I actually have nothing to complain about with Ob - I love it. I just wanted to know how slim and simplistic I could go, but xmonad and Awesome are super tricky to build...since I'm not using a multi monitor setup I don't really need it, I guess. And after seeing how many extra MB there is in the dependencies the argument of them being lightweight is sort of non-existent...I don't know...
I think statler is defo the right move tho. Which one you think works better?

Re: Awesome 3.4.7 + #! 9.04 - anybody tried it yet? I need help installing

statler (ob or xfce) is running like a charm on my old ibm TPR51, so, i think it's gonna be a very good experience for you (assuming your pc is newer than mine wink  ).
i still think that #! is one of the best distro at this time, even if you like fancy effect (xfce does a good job) or minimalistic desktop (ob is the best tweakable minimalist wm for me).
so, to finish with, i think you should install statler and make your "really own" openbox config. take your time to do it, and i'm sure you'll enjoy #!10 big_smile

Re: Awesome 3.4.7 + #! 9.04 - anybody tried it yet? I need help installing

I would definitely go for statler. Awesome is what made me make the move from 9.04 to statler. Hope it all works out.

*shameless Awesome promotion*
Awesome 3.4.6 is pretty nice. I'm not sure what all exactly has changed from 3.4.5 to .6, but it works just as well. Light, fast, easy on battery life.
Though I would still never recommend building it from source. When I tried, for whatever reason, it asked for gdm and some things having to do with login that weren't needed when I pulled it from the repos.


A world without what makes us, us. One without you or me.
A world with no differences, this is the world I see.

Before compiling it, try this first:

sudo apt-get build-dep awesome
