Xubuntu awsome install

awesome is a tiling window manager for linux

Installing awesome is as easy as doing :

sudo apt-get install -y awesome awesome-extra

by default awesome has no network manager or compositing to fix this we are going to use unagi and nm-applet

for compositing install :

sudo apt-get install -y unagi

and add the following to your /home/$username/.config/awesome/rc.lua:

awful.util.spawn_with_shell("unagi &")

to add a network manager just add the following to your /home/$username/.config/awesome/rc.lua

awful.util.spawn_with_shell("nm-applet &")
