You want the widgets you'll need the 'recommended' awesome-extra package.

I've edited the page, but I:-
;haven't installed the packages
;don't trust the rest of the page
;note the page could use some more editing for readability

So if you do install awesome it'd be appreciated if you edited the wiki
page and replaced those instructions for Ubuntu with realistic, tested,
information for Debian.
