So I'm using Awesome WM 3.5; and I'm having trouble changing themes. Whenever I try to change my theme I get these red boxes on the right side of my screen that reads "/etc/xdg/awesome/rc.lua:445 bad argument #-1 to '?' (string expected. got nil)"

Anyone know how to fix this?

Moved from Gentoo Chat to Desktop Environments (best fit I've found).

The PATH for user themes for awesome is

Code:
/home/<user>/.config/awesome/


From here you can configure themes for this WM without change the system-wide configuration in /etc/xdg.

My recomendations is, used the PATH from your HOME config, not the system-wide. [/code]

I actually just had to copy the lain folder from my awesome-copycat folder into the actual awesome folder with the rc.lua

Copy the all awesome-copycat folder not only lain folder, and edit your themes for you can use the copycats lain widgets.
