Makes sense, of course. Still the OP can modify the SlackBuild for his
personal use in the meantime and then have it ready to go if/when those
changes are made in Slackware proper.
And to the OP, sorry if I seemed gruff. I'm just annoyed that awesome3
made all those changes when IMHO, awesome2 was pretty darn awesome.
Using a deprecated window manager (that I like) sucks. Having said
that, there is an update to awesome2 (2.3.5) that I will submit soon.
One last tidbit for the OP - did you see this in the awesome wiki:
I think that has the answers you are seeking. :-)
