Dear experts I am new to Ubuntu. I am using gnome shell and willing to use awesome windows manager.

I am supposed to search for the tutorials before asking here and I did a lots of googling and their tutorials . What I felt is they have only focused on how to configure awesome. I want to see awesome on my session list.

I already did a lot of things as they say but didn't work out please make an easy tutorial.

if you're using a recent version of ubuntu (13.10), after installing awesome, it is hidden by default - here's a bug page. According to comment 18, it's been fixed in trusty.

Edit /usr/share/xsessions/awesome.desktop and remove "NoDisplay=true"
