Interactive shell in textbox.

Hi, just started with Awesome 3.4.13-1 ( in Debian ), and Lua. I've put a text widget text box on my system-bar next to 'mytextclock'. How can I run an interactive shell (bash) in this textbox? I would like to keep the shell one line in height. Any thoughts appreciated - thanks, Alex.

Taglist colors

One more question.

How i can change awful.widget.taglist() color to be different from theme
defaults?

I read the API lua documentation about base_widget argument but cant
understand how to implement it. Can you give more detailed answer then in
the documentation?

Thanks.

Change wibox.widget.textbox() depends on the tag

Hello there!

I have a question about textbox and tags.

depends on the current tag? For example if current active tag is first then
textbox displays "Hello", if we switch to second tag it now displays "Lolipop".

If it is possible can u descripe how to achieve this in details(because im
not so good in programming).

Thnaks. And sorry for bad english, it is not my native.

awesome does not start after login

Hi, guys! I decided to try awesome on openSUSE, so I installed it from 
the official repositories.
It worked flawlessly, but, there's the only issue, - it's a really old 
version, something like 3.4.15. So, I uninstalled it, grabbed a .rpm for 
an older version of opensuse (why in the world there's a later version 
of awesome for an older openSUSE??? ) and installed it instead; 
according to zypper it was ok, like, an upgrade.
After this operation there were no way awesome would start. I usually 
run it from lightDM, but it would give me a black screen and return to 
login. Is there a way to repair it? I tried to cleanse it in every way, 
by renaming my ~/.config/awesome folder, but there is still nothing to do.

What could I do to remedy?

P.S. I also tried to compile it from sources, but it gives me errors by 
saying that several dependencies are missing. The issue consists in the 
fact that I already have those dependencies, but under another name 
(like, cairo->libcairo0, or things like that). Is there a way to make it 
compile w/out errors?

Thank you very much for your help.

Menubar Parsing Bug

The menubar library breaks entirely if it cannot parse every .desktop file in its search path. For example, it breaks if one of your .desktop files is a broken symlink.

For example, run

# ln -s /foo /usr/share/applications/broken.desktop

Restart awesome, and open the menubar. You will get an error at lib/menubar/utils.lua:131 because it assumes that it will be able to parse every .desktop file. It's an uncommon situation, but it's pretty annoying that it breaks the whole menubar rather than skipping the problematic file.

Changing behavior of layout

My favorite layout is awful.layout.suit.tile.left. But I would like to slightly change the default behavior:

I have two windows on the left (A, B) and one window on the right side (C):
---------
| A |   |
|---| C |
| B |   |
---------

When I add a new window (D), it appears on the right side. Window C goes to the upper left:

---------
| C |   |
|---|   |
| A | D |
|---|   |
| B |   |
---------

I would like to change this. D should appear on the upper left (with focus), and C should remain on the right:

---------
| D |   |
|---|   |
| A | C |
|---|   |
| B |   |
---------

Is it somehow possible to achieve this?

Hi !

For Atom editor I just followed instruction from https://github.com/atom/atom/blob/master/docs/build-instructions/linux.md

The editor works well if I lunch it from terminal. But nothing append if I try by the quick luncher MOD + R.

Does somebody had same issue ? How to resolve that ?

compiling awesome on red hat 6

Greetings,

I have been using awesome on Arch for a while and now trying to compile
it for a red hat 6 system. After installing all the dependencies (cairo,
etc), I am getting the following when I make awesome (version 3.5.5):

$: cd awesome-3.5.5
$: make

   :
   :

   CMakeFiles/awesome.dir/dbus.c.o: In function `luaA_rawlen':
   /home/esquires3/repos/software/awesome/awesome-3.5.5/luaa.h:99: undefined reference to `lua_rawlen'

There are quite a few other similar undefined reference errors in the
output. Lua is installed in /usr/local.

Can you all assist me with getting awesome compiled? 

Eric
