I need to have network widget in my Awesome manager. When I placed in very bottom of rc.lua line


my Awesome was not starting until I have removed it. What is wrong with it?

Is it possible run Lua commands just in terminal?

That command should work fine.

Did you see any errors?

Try the follwing in a terminal and check for a response:

echo "return awful.util.spawn('nm-applet')" | awesome-client

You could also try using the full path: /usr/bin/nm-applet
