How do I install the latest awesome window manager on Ubuntu?

For example,

  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS contains awesome 3.5.6
  • Ubuntu 16.10 contains awesome 3.5.9

but the latest release as of now is 4.0.


There is an unofficial ppa for awesome window manager. You can run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:klaus-vormweg/awesome -y
sudo apt update
sudo apt install  awesome -y

This will install the latest awesome (currently version 4.0) on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS, 16.10, or 18.04 LTS.
