    A bit of help needed with Awesome WM

    Hi!

    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.

    ~/.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.
