    new awesome release!

    howdy all - new awesome release (2.3-rc3). Once again, they've changed the config file, so you'll have to tinker slightly, however the default config is at least quite pretty. They've changed the widget interface as well...


    New .awesomerc:
    Code:
    screen 0
    {   
        styles
        {   
            normal
            {       
                    font = "sans 8"
                    fg = "#ffffff"
                    bg = "#000000"
                    border = "#555555"
            }
            focus
            {       
                    fg = "#ffffff"
                    bg = "#b4b892"
                    border = "#b4b892"
            }
            urgent
            {       
                    fg = "#111111"
                    bg = "#ff4500"
            }
        }
    There's that section, which takes over the first few sections.


    and the new widget syntax is:
    Code:
    echo <screen> widget_tell <statusbar name> <widget> text <your text> | awesome-client
    You need that "text" in there.

    Re: new awesome release!

    Is there any Ubuntu repository from which this can be installed, or does it need to be manually compiled?

    I tried the latter and discovered that it requires libconfuse 2.6 while Ubuntu has only 2.5. I then modified ./configure to trick it to require only 2.5. But then it gave this error:

    common/configopts.c:387: error: ‘CFGF_NO_TITLE_DUPES’ undeclared here (not in a function)

    That's all I've been able to do so far. Have you successfully installed it yourself? And if so, what was the trick? Thanks!

    Re: new awesome release!

    how to set opacity_focused and opacity_unfocused? on adding these under general section, i get thrown back to the default config. This also happens on using the fg property in textbox widget.

    EDIT: never mind i got it solved the man page said float values so i gave 50.0, 87.34 etc. whereas it takes value between 0.0 and 1.0
