rc.lua is in ~/.config/awesome and I start awesome with 'exec awesome' in .xinitrc. X gets started with SLIM.
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
