[SOVLED] How should i do to run Awesome wm when i run startx command?

Hi, I want to run Awesome vm via startx command. I'm know i have to run x server to running Awesome wm. But it doesn't work at same time,  After i run startx command, then they shows some unknown white terminals and i have to type Awesome command on terminal again to running Awesome wm. I think i need to edit some configuration but i can't figure out what should i edit and how. How should i do to run Awesome wm when i run startx command?

Edit: So i referenced documents about awesome and xinit.
I bring out .xinitrc file which located in /etc/X11/xinit/ to home directory and I edited it. I added awesome command below "twm &" line which located last lines. And it works fine now.
Makesure the command that you want to execute has been located top which means just below of "twm &" line. You don't have to run only awesome commands, You can also run other display manager like xfce.

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.
