fix: use correct disk percentage (#305)
This was the original value. It was changed in ad6d3f2 because
(according to commit message) precentage stopped working. Now, it seems
to be working again.

Awesome WM Copycats

Themes for Awesome WM 4.x

:Author: Luca CPZ
:Version: git
:License: BY-SA_
:Source: https://github.com/lcpz/awesome-copycats


A set of themes for the Awesome_ window manager, version 4.x.

See branches_ for previous versions.


The main purpose of this repository is to spread ready to use configurations, which can also serve as a cookbook for customisation.

A secondary aim is to add new themes only when they constitute different UI/UX designs.


- Modularity
- Autohide widgets
- Autostart windowless processes
- Fast MPD and volume shortcuts (first time this trick has been used in Awesome)
- Shortcuts for copying to the clipboard, toggle wiboxes, widgets popups, screenshots capture, moving and magnifying clients
- Quake drop-down terminal
- Calendar with current day highlighted and months switch with a click/scroll
- Notifications for new mails, current song, volume level, hdd critical state, low battery
- OpenWeatherMap integration
- Net carrier status notifier
- Symbolic tag names
- DWM-like textual layoutbox
- Cairo wibar
- Custom layouts
- No borders when there's only one visible client
- Freedesktop.org compliant menu and desktop icons
- Vi-like client focus
- Non-empty tag browsing
- On-the-fly useless gaps resize
- Dynamic tagging

.. code-block:: shell

    git clone --recurse-submodules --remote-submodules --depth 1 -j 2 https://github.com/lcpz/awesome-copycats.git
    mv -bv awesome-copycats/{*,.[^.]*} ~/.config/awesome; rm -rf awesome-copycats

In case you do not want the Git files, use the following as the second command:

.. code-block:: shell

    mv -bv awesome-copycats/* ~/.config/awesome; rm -rf awesome-copycats


The modular structure allows to

* set variables
* define startup processes
* change keybindings and layouts
* set client properties

in ``rc.lua``, and

* configure widgets
* define wiboxes and screen settings

in ``theme.lua``, so that you just need to change ``chosen_theme`` variable in ``rc.lua`` to preserve your preferences *and* switch the theme, instead of having file redundancy.

Just do the following:

.. code-block:: shell

    $ cd ~/.config/awesome
    $ cp rc.lua.template rc.lua

Then, set the variable ``chosen_theme`` in ``rc.lua`` to your preferred theme, do your settings, and restart Awesome (``Mod4 + ctrl + r``).

To customize a theme, head over to ``themes/$chosen_theme/theme.lua``.

Otherwise, if you want to be synced with upstream, modify the theme path in ``rc.lua`` like this:

.. code-block:: diff

    -beautiful.init(string.format("%s/.config/awesome/themes/%s/theme.lua", os.getenv("HOME"), chosen_theme))
    +beautiful.init(string.format("%s/.config/awesome/themes/%s/theme-personal.lua", os.getenv("HOME"), chosen_theme))

then, copy ``theme.lua`` to ``theme-personal.lua`` and do your customizations there.

This way, you can safely ``git pull`` anytime.


Complements are provided by lain_ and freedesktop_. **Be sure** to satisfy their dependencies_. In particular, mail_ and weather_ widgets have **mandatory** arguments.

The fonts used in the screenshots are: Terminus_ (Multicolor, Powerarrow, Powerarrow Dark), Roboto_ (Holo, Vertex) and Tamzen_ (other ones).

As taglist font, Blackburn and Dremora use Icons_, Vertex uses FontAwesome_: be sure to have bitmaps enabled if running under Debian or Ubuntu_.

Every theme has a colorscheme_.
