slim [options] [<arguments>]



DESCRIPTION

SLiM is a lightweight login manager for X11, allowing the initialization of a graphical session by entring username and password in a login screen.

OPTIONS

-d run as a daemon
-p /path/to/theme display a preview of the theme. An already running X11 session is required for theme preview.
-h display a brief help message
-v display version information

EXAMPLES

slim -d run slim in daemon mode
slim -p /usr/local/share/slim/themes/default preview of the default theme

STARTING SLIM AT BOOT

Please refer to documentation of your Operating System to make slim automatically startup after the system boots.

For FreeBSD, you should add the line slim_enable=yes to /etc/rc.conf to make slim start on boot.

CONFIGURATION

Global configuration is stored in the /usr/local/etc/slim.conf file. See the comments inside the file for a detailed explanation of the options.

USAGE AND SPECIAL USERNAMES

When started, slim will show a login panel; enter the username and password of the user you want to login as.

Special usernames:
console open a xterm console
exit quit slim
halt shutdown the machine
reboot reboot the machine
suspend power-suspend the machine
See the configuration file for customizing the above commands. The ’halt’ and ’reboot’ commands need the root password, this may change in future releases.
Shortcuts:
F11 executes a custom command (by default takes a screenshot)
F1 choose session type (see configuration file and xinitrc.sample)
