Attention everyone: this package is updated to the new Awesome branch (4.x).

If you're using Community/awesome package, which is currently still at version 3.5.9, for the time being either switch to AUR/awesome-git, or install lain from Git and revert to latest 3.5.x commit:

$ git clone ~/.config/awesome/lain
$ cd ~/.config/awesome/lain
$ git checkout 301faf5 .

Replace the following with lain/layout/uselesstile.lua and tell me if it's ok.

I'm trying to understand your code about the uselesstile layout and thinking if their is a way to make the gaps between the windows two times wider than between window and screen (like how it is in xmonad). is their a way to achieve this?

Source package created with mkaurball, and git files removed.

Hi, I just discovered this packages installs its .git dir
pacman -Ql lain-git | grep "\.git"

Hi, this one must be renamed as lain-git.

This maybe a better pkgbuild:

1)git pkgname with -git
2)source array
3)remove the .git files,and lost gitmodule wiki.
