Navigating around in a windows tiling manager is different than in other windows managers.
We have tagnames to put applications on and we learn the most important shortcuts.
There is a very important shortcut to set your tiling and that is Super + Spacebar.
Super + esc is a supertip to kill a process that you want to stop immediately.
Rofi has been added to Awesome :
Super + R to select menu – ALT + A to save it
Super + F11 to choose menu’s
Super + F12 to choose menu’s
You can add gaps in Awesome between windows with shortcuts (CTRL + ALT +M and P) but you can set it also in the theme.lua. Change the value in theme.useless_gap.
