Seeing problems as opportunities is an extremely helpful approach that has yet again proven to work well for me. Recently someone has reported problems building i3wm using my Slackbuild script that uses the i3 master git branch. Not only did it prompt me to revisit the script but also encouraged to get in touch with Michael, i3 developer, who, as usual, was extremely helpful providing me with a number of corrections and helpful comments. Additionally, I liked how another slacker organised doc files and added those modifications as well.
Below you can get a SlackBuild script for the master branch of i3wm for Slackware-current (14.1). It’s not going to build on Slackware 14.0 or older.
