Installation

Using git:

git clone https://github.com/copycat-killer/awesome-copycats.git
mv -u awesome-copycats ~/.config/awesome
cd ~/.config/awesome/lain
git submodule init
git submodule update

Otherwise download this two archives (1 and 2), extract the first one, extract the second one into the first one, and put the contents of the first one into your Awesome directory.

Usage

Switch a theme this way:

cd ~/.config/awesome
cp rc.lua.theme rc.lua

then customize your rc.lua and restart Awesome (Mod4 + ctrl + r).

Notes

Be sure to have Lua 5.2+, Lua-lgi, and latest version of Awesome.

Complements are provided by lain: be sure to meet its dependencies.

Fonts are Terminus (Multicolor, Powerarrow Darker) and Tamsyn (other ones).

Every theme has a colorscheme.

Blackburn and Dremora use Icons, be sure to have bitmaps enabled if running under Debian or Ubuntu.

Freedesktop uses /etc/mime.types, so be sure to have mime-types support installed.

Eminent, freedesktop and scratchdrop are third-party softwares: rely on their creators if they cause you issues.
