Your behaviour is obviously passiv-aggressive. Nobody forces you to fucking
use dwm 6.1. If you are not willing to learn or make the necessary changes,
then bloody stay with 6.0.
We unified the suckless-X-tools with libdrw. Learn the Xft syntax and you'll
be good to go with all other tools.
Check out the logs when dmenu doesn't spawn.
