"The source for Window Maker can be retrieved from the
primary web site at http://windowmaker.org/. You'll need two
packages from this site: the source distribution and the
libPropList source package. The latter package is a library used by
Window Maker, which you must build and install before attempting to
build Window Maker. End users probably won't refer to it much after
building Window Maker, so we'll just look at getting it installed.
At the time of this writing, the latest version of libPropList is
0.91 and the latest version of Window Maker is 0.61."
"In order to make use of fancy graphics, you'll need the
standard set of graphics libraries: libpng, libtiff, libjpeg,
libgif and libXPM. All of these are fairly standard on newer Linux
distributions. If you have an older version (more than two years
old), you may want to check if these libraries are installed. If
not, check Freshmeat (http://freshmeat.net/) for where to find the
"One other optional library is GNU xgettext. This library is
needed only if you plan to use a language other then English, and
then only if you want the messages displayed by Window Maker to be
in that language. You won't need it, for example, if your root menu
is in French. Internationalization is a topic all to itself, and
since I have enough problems with English, I will leave it to
someone better suited to its discussion."
