This dotfiles might help beginner learn Awesome Window Manager. Let's have a look at these tutorials below.

I just want to share the knowledge. I hope you like it. Although, tiling window manager is not for everyone. It is your choice (and right), to learn, or not to learn.

What do you think ?

# Awesome WM Installation

  For those who never use Awesome. First, you need to install the Window Manager.

  It is out of topic, and you can skip this step, if you already know how to Install Awesome.

¤ Install Debian

¤ Install Arch/Manjaro

  Note that, the Awesome WM Wiki is more than enough.

If you do not have any idea what Tiling Window Manager is all about, you can watch this Aline Abler youtube cast: Introduction to Tiling Window Manager.
