Packages required for compilation:

sudo apt-get install gcc autoconf libtool libfreetype6-dev xorg-dev x11-utils


The actual compilation step should be quite painless:

cd afterstep-stable
sudo make install

At this point you should have AfterStep installed in /usr/local/bin (binaries) and /usr/local/share/afterstep (data files). Now we need to setup the system to make good use of it.

System Configuration

MS Core Fonts, so that you can use Helvetica, Courier, Times, etc. fonts (Optional):

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
