Hello, everyone!

I have installed the awesome on my computer, but there is an issue.
It seems a line on the screen when I browse the website, but it's OK when I use the plasma.

I think this sounds like issues with vsync. You will need to install a compositor. I use compton. My compton config:
Code:
# Shadow
shadow = true;                  # Enabled client-side shadows on windows.
no-dock-shadow = true;          # Avoid drawing shadows on dock/panel windows.
no-dnd-shadow = true;           # Don't draw shadows on DND windows.
clear-shadow = true;            # Zero the part of the shadow's mask behind the window (experimental).
shadow-radius = 7;              # The blur radius for shadows. (default 12)
shadow-offset-x = -7;           # The left offset for shadows. (default -15)
shadow-offset-y = -7;           # The top offset for shadows. (default -15)
# shadow-opacity = 0.7;         # The translucency for shadows. (default .75)
# shadow-red = 0.0;             # Red color value of shadow. (0.0 - 1.0, defaults to 0)
# shadow-green = 0.0;           # Green color value of shadow. (0.0 - 1.0, defaults to 0)
# shadow-blue = 0.0;            # Blue color value of shadow. (0.0 - 1.0, defaults to 0)
shadow-exclude = [ "n:e:Notification" ];        # Exclude conditions for shadows.
# shadow-ignore-shaped = true;

# Opacity
#menu-opacity = 0.9;                    # The opacity for menus. (default 1.0)
# inactive-opacity = 0.9;                       # Opacity of inactive windows. (0.1 - 1.0)
#frame-opacity = 0.8;                   # Opacity of window titlebars and borders. (0.1 - 1.0)
inactive-opacity-override = true;       # Inactive opacity set by 'inactive-opacity' overrides value of _NET_WM_OPACITY.
inactive-dim = 0.3;

# Fading
fading = true;                  # Fade windows during opacity changes.
# fade-delta = 30;              # The time between steps in a fade in milliseconds. (default 10).
fade-in-step = 0.05;            # Opacity change between steps while fading in. (default 0.028).
fade-out-step = 0.05;           # Opacity change between steps while fading out. (default 0.03).
# no-fading-openclose = true;   # Fade windows in/out when opening/closing.

# Other
#inactive-dim = 0.5;            # Dim inactive windows. (0.0 - 1.0, defaults to 0).
mark-wmwin-focused = true;      # Try to detect WM windows and mark them as active.
mark-ovredir-focused = true;
detect-rounded-corners = true;
backend = "glx";
vsync = "opengl-swc";

# Window type settings
wintypes:
{
  tooltip = { fade = true; shadow = true; opacity = 0.75; };
};

The important part for me (intel) is "backend" and "vsync".
