I'm running awesome v3.4.15 on Linux ubuntu-TLS 4.4.0-36-generic (Xenial) I created the file -rw-r--r-- 1 chris chris 16819 Aug 26 21:54 /home/chris/.config/awesome/rc.lua But the file is not loaded. awesome -k returns clean. Awesome starts with /etc/xdg/awesome/rc.lua and the awesome -> edit config menu will load this same file.
The only errors I found were: [quote] chris@ubuntu-TLS:~$ cat ~/.xsession-errors openConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 error loading module 'bashets' from file '/usr/share/awesome/lib/bashets.lua': /usr/share/awesome/lib/bashets.lua:1: unexpected symbol near '<' Failed to connect to session manager: Failed to connect to the session manager: SESSION_MANAGER environment variable not defined (xfce4-terminal:3256): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_window_get_window_type: assertion 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed [/quote] Where else can I look for errors in the setup? Thank you, LinuxLover
