A bit of help needed with Awesome WM
I'm trying to install Awesome WM. Well, the install is completed and working, but I can't seem to make any changes to the interface. I read the manpage, which says the config file is ~/awesome/rc.lua, another page says it's ~/awesomerc, and yet another says it's ~/.config/awesome/rc.lua.
Just to be safe, I copied the rc.lua to all three places. Tried adding the widget by using the method described here http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Awe..._configuration, but it doesn't seem to show up after restarting. Which is the config file, and what am I doing wrong? Answer would be appreciated.
Re: A bit of help needed with Awesome WM
~/.config/awesome/rc.lua would be where you want to copy the default config rc.lua file.
Modify this and then restart / reload by [meta][ctrl]r
If the changes don't appear to have worked, you either got your syntax wrong or the commands are wrong.
I have been using awesome for about 5 years or so with Ubuntu and love it.
