[SOLVED] Awesome Icons not showing up?

I can't seem to get Awesome 3.5 icons to show up. Anything other than the default icon doesn't show. I don't receive any errors either when opening up awesome.

I've used both my own simple imageboxes and copied other configs from Github from others on 3.5 but there's just no icon there.

memwidget = wibox.widget.textbox()
vicious.register(memwidget, vicious.widgets.mem, "$1% ($2MB/$3MB)", 13) 
memicon = wibox.widget.imagebox()
memicon:set_image("~/.config/awesome/icons/mem.png")
cpuicon = wibox.widget.imagebox()
cpuicon:set_image("~/.config/awesome/icons/cpu.png")

...

    -- Widgets that are aligned to the right
    local right_layout = wibox.layout.fixed.horizontal()
    if s == 1 then right_layout:add(wibox.widget.systray()) end
    right_layout:add(cpuicon)
    right_layout:add(memicon)
    right_layout:add(memwidget)
    right_layout:add(mytextclock)
    right_layout:add(mylayoutbox[s])

I get the memory widget just fine, but no memory/cpu icon. Triple-checked the path and it's correct.

ls ~/.config/awesome/icons/mem.png 
/home/pedram/.config/awesome/icons/mem.png

Can't for the life of me figure this one out.

try changing the path to /home/<username> instead of just ~

I actually make this a habit just because you never know and absolute paths always work
