Hello. I am trying awesome. I got 384-th error after starting. Google says nothing, or I am blind a little. :)
Code:
 ~ $ DISPLAY=:1.0 awesome
E: awesome: main:384: cannot open display

My configs here:
Code:
 ~ $ cat .xinitrc
exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session awesome

Code:
 ~ $ cat .config/awesome/rc.lua
# Ok.. a lot of code... :) I have this file.

simply run
Code:
$ startx

that will read your .xinitrc and launch the commands you specified in there.
Mine looks like this:
Code:
$ cat .xinitrc
#ck-launch-session /usr/bin/enlightenment_start

mv ~/.xsession-errors ~/.xsession-errors.old

compton --config ~/.config/compton.conf 2>> ~/.xsession-errors &

exec awesome 2>> ~/.xsession-errors

As you see I do not use consolekit - I simply run awesome. Furthermore I use the compton compositor to get tear-free scrolling/videos/...
The commented line shows how I started enlightenment WITH consolekit - you might want to adopt it or awesome.

ok. it helps. thanks for the advice.)

I have got a question about awesome. I start x-server. then I go to the another terminal (alt+ctrl+fX). When I return back there is no GUI just x-server log. How to fix it?

That depends. Usually the first graphical terminal is under "ctrl+alt+f7". IMHO with systemd I think I got it on the first free treminal (login at 1, X at 2).
Easiest solution would be to just hit ctrl+alt+Fx - x=1...12 - until you find the terminal where your X is running ;)

That should not be possible.
Could you be more specific about what's not working?
