I have a clean installation of pop os 20.04 and want to try out suckless software, specially dwm. I have done
sudo apt install dwm suckless-tools stterm surf and it worked. I now have the option at the login screen to change gnome for dwm. I can use dmenu and stterm.
But how can I patch it since it wasn't downloaded from git, I have done
apt-get build-dep dwm to get all the needed tools to compile it and also
apt-get source dwm to get the source code into my home folder but it is not a git repository.
I've tried the simplest thing, to change the Alt key for the Super key without any success. I have copied the config.def.h into a config.h, that files is the one I am modifying then I run
sudo make clean install and it does not throw any errors but it does not change the Mod1 for Mod4 keys even after reboot.
Besides that, I am very interested in patching the dwm with the center layout as well as adding slstatus to the status bar since this is a laptop. I haven't found any post about this, does anyone know how to do this?
