4 Navigating in Awesome and learning the many shortcuts

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.
