Awesome WM not reading local config files
I just installed Debian on my netbook and I use awesome window manager. However, it seems to completely ignore the local config file in ~/.config/awesome/rc.lua. I have awesome installed and running fine on my other (Arch) laptop, so I copied over its config file. It still doesn't read the local config. It seems to be reading the config file from /etc/xdg/awesome/rc.lua.
I looked on the Debian wiki, and my local config is in the right place. According to the manpage and the Debian wiki, it should read the local config, then the global config.
I'm running Debian Wheezy and am using LightDM for my desktop manager.
