I've downloaded this window manager from github and it has a autogen.sh script but it failed each time.

I don't know what could happen or how to fix it:

Output from ./autogen.sh:

  • Can you please tell me which package and what error you are getting while executing the autogen script? I'm not able to access that website(link) because of some network restrictions.Or you can try running the configure script if you have.

    Okay, somehow I tried it again today after downloading a new version and it built just fine... I'm not sure what the issue is/was maybe a error in the script I'm not sure.
