I'm trying to install awesome wm following: http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Awesome-3.4.11/git-Ubuntu-Lucid

but instead of installing

libxcb-1.8, xcb-proto-1.7, xcb-util-0.3.8 and xcb-util-wm-0.3.8

I installed

libxcb-1.9.1 xcb-util-0.3.9 xcb-util-wm-0.3.9 xcb-proto-1.8 xcb-util-renderutil-0.3.8

When I try to compile awesome I get the following error:

package 'xcb-cursor' not found CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:266 (message): A required package was not found

what am i missing ?

You need xcb-util-cursor. It's probably not in any Ubuntu repository yet, so you'd need to get and compile it yourself.
