Problem with Awesome

Postby Acces_node_31Hs34 » Thu Mar 08, 2012 8:51 am

I installed Awesome for first time and tried to follow the My first awesome tutorial but ran into a problem. I tried to install and make the netwidget to work but for some reason the awesome won't display it. I am fairly sure I have written everything correctly and would enjoy if someone would bother to check the code and tell me if I have bad code or is the problem somewhere else. I am running clean install of awesome with nothing else on the computer atm.

Here is a link to the code: http://pastebin.com/71v36RRK

Hello:

Just in case: remember that any widget requires a wibox.
I am guessing that if your widget never shows maybe you have a problem related with the wibox.

You can find more information here: http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Widgets_in_awesome

I prefer this solution:

Code: Select all

awful.util.spawn_with_shell("nm-applet")


I also use this:

Code: Select all

awful.util.spawn_with_shell("gnome-sound-applet")
