Hi, guys! I decided to try awesome on openSUSE, so I installed it from
the official repositories.
It worked flawlessly, but, there's the only issue, - it's a really old
version, something like 3.4.15. So, I uninstalled it, grabbed a .rpm for
an older version of opensuse (why in the world there's a later version
of awesome for an older openSUSE??? ) and installed it instead;
according to zypper it was ok, like, an upgrade.
After this operation there were no way awesome would start. I usually
run it from lightDM, but it would give me a black screen and return to
login. Is there a way to repair it? I tried to cleanse it in every way,
by renaming my ~/.config/awesome folder, but there is still nothing to do.
What could I do to remedy?
P.S. I also tried to compile it from sources, but it gives me errors by
saying that several dependencies are missing. The issue consists in the
fact that I already have those dependencies, but under another name
(like, cairo->libcairo0, or things like that). Is there a way to make it
compile w/out errors?
Thank you very much for your help.
