Your totally right a system purging of lua and luajit and then going straight for awesome-luajit-git fixed the issue.

Even got AUR luajit-lgi to compile which I've never seen it succeed before.

I tried it during my install I'm not sure how much cleaner it could have been back then.

Well its its working now thanks. ^^

blueyed commented on 2017-06-27 06:59

Does it not work for longer already in your case, or due to the latest change which uses lua-penlight-git? (

It looks like mixed Lua versions in your case.
You might want to try awesome-git instead.

To be honest I haven't been able to get this to build since the change over.

Fatal errors during compiling at 65-100% while trying to build target ldoc.

Updated the pkgver, after it was marked as out-of-date just now.

actionless commented on 2017-01-18 17:17

packages are still being generated with 3.5.2 base version

that prevents AUR helpers, like yaourt or pacaur, from normally auto-updating the packages because in srcinfo it's 4.0 while locally it's still 3.5.2, ie every time the helper thinks what awesome should be updated

warp commented on 2016-12-26 22:36

And xcb-util-xrm. It's mentioned in the awesome-git package.

antontell commented on 2016-12-26 18:43

The build won't work without lua-lgi being installed.

blueyed commented on 2016-11-20 23:50

Adopted the package, and have taken @z33ky's suggestion. Thanks!

This package uses Awesome from its Git master branch now, so that might be considered a breaking change! :)

z33ky commented on 2016-09-15 13:35

I would also suggest ´sed -i 's/^lua/luajit/' $pkgname/build-utils/´ and ´sed -i 's/COMMAND lua/COMMAND luajit/' $pkgname/tests/examples/CMakeLists.txt´ in prepare().

blueyed commented on 2016-06-02 22:34


So I'll look at the PKGBUILD diff to awesome-git in more detail and see how they can be aligned.

What do others think?
Should this package get renamed (without the -git), and a new package for git master be added (here)?

Mic92 commented on 2016-06-02 21:39

it's yours now, have fun. I switched to qtile

blueyed commented on 2016-06-02 20:37

I would have expected this to build the git master version, and therefore think this package should be renamed to awesome-luajit?!

FWIW, I've came up with the following patch against awesome-git to build it with luajit:

utsi commented on 2016-03-12 18:34

Could you bump the package up to 3.5.9?

Builds and works fine if I manually change it in the PKGBUILD.

Mic92 commented on 2014-11-26 08:23

- point to new git repo

m0ikz commented on 2014-11-25 18:12

It seems that the Awesome repo moved to github
Please update the PKGBUILD.


Mic92 commented on 2014-06-09 12:00

- upgrade to tag v3.5.5
- use xcb-util-cursor instead of -git variant
- use mkaurball for compatibility with AURv3

actionless commented on 2014-05-28 02:29

why it have 'xcb-util-cursor-git' in dependencies?
it works for me with 'xcb-util-cursor' from 'community' repo

Mic92 commented on 2014-03-30 19:06

- add /etc/xdg/awesome/rc.lua to backup array
- seperate xsession file for kdm
- use luajit-lgi instead of luajit-lgi-git as build dependency

PKGBUILD is maintained here:

Mic92 commented on 2013-09-21 16:21

New Version: add xcb-util-cursor-git and drop libxcursor and xcb-util-image.

Anonymous comment on 2013-09-21 15:16

Needs xcb-util-cursor-git as a dependency now. Also, xcb-util-image is no longer needed.

Mic92 commented on 2013-06-20 18:15

@lucy Thanks for the refactoring!

Anonymous comment on 2013-06-19 13:48

updated PKGBUILD for makepkg's vcs support:

Mic92 commented on 2012-12-31 08:17

Not really.
Don't expect too much, since the hard work is done in C already.
For me it is a good alternative, since luasocket isn't compatible with lua5.2.
Also I have a power regression (always takes 1-3% percent of my cpu) somewhere in my config, which is less worse, when using luajit.

Baggio commented on 2012-12-31 05:48

Finally there are a PKGBUILD for awesome wm with luajit :).
Great Thanks to Mic92
Is there any benchmark between awesome build with luajit and that build with lua5.2 available?
