I just started playing with awesome-wm. Sometimes, when I reload my config, the settings hold. Other times, I can see some settings take for a second, but then are overridden by the defaults.

I copied the /etc/xdg/awesome directory to ~/.config/awesome as suggested on the wiki. I've also noticed some other issues with these steps, and I'm not sure if it's me, my system, or what. Other relevant issues include:

  • Theme loads, and then loads the default
  • Network Widget on the link above doesn't load (or I don't see it)
  • Changing the tags results in 18 tags. The ones I changed, and 1-9 again.

Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong?
