Maybe it is a timing issue. Can you have awesome run wmname and syndaemon? It is able to run apps when it starts.https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Aw … n_programshttps://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Autostart
Use code blocks. I am not an awesome user... I am rather lame actually.... so I cannot help you I don't think.This may be off putting to some though:I use Windows 95....err, I mean Arch with Awesome WM with urxvt.
Add this to your startup script:xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local
xset fp rehashAlso make sure you have xrdb -load $HOME/.Xresources & in startup script so .Xresources gets loaded.https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fonts#Installation
