I'm editing my rc.lua file at ~/.config/awesome/rc.lua attempting to edit my tags. So two problems. The tags are still just the default numbers. Here's the relevant code in the rc.lua file.
Yeah, thats a picture taken with my phone. Problem number 2, how on earth do I copy some code in vim to paste in to the new post box. For the life of me I can't work it out. Right clicking and left clicking just change the selected text and pressing ctrl whilst clicking brings up irrelevent menus regards copying.
Not sure if I get the second question, but I select (highlight) with left mousebutton pressed and paste with middleclick (3rd mouse button) or Shift-Insert.
As I see, it's just a mistype - table with tag names are called "names", but in "awful.tag(tags.name, s, tags.layout)" you refer to it as "name".
Second question. Long answer ":help mouse". Short answer: do ":set mouse=" before copying.
English is not my native language, sorry.
