NOTE: The SLiM display manager is no longer maintained. The old website (http://slim.berlios.de) hosted a copy of the Git repository, but this site is now gone. The SLiM display manager is a great piece of software and a great reference for those of you who want to write your own display managers, so I'm uploading my local copy of the code here as a mirror. The last commit to the project was on October 3rd, 2013. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- README file for SLiM Nobuhiro Iwamatsu <email@example.com> INTRODUCTION SLiM (Simple Login Manager) is a graphical login manager for X11. It aims to be simple, fast and independent from the various desktop environments. SLiM is based on latest stable release of Login.app by Per Lidén. New features: - External themes and configuration - PNG support with alpha transparency for panel - PNG / JPEG support for backgrounds - XFT / freetype support - Double or single (GDM-style) inputbox support - CMake build procedure INSTALLATION see the INSTALL file USAGE To launch slim, execute run the slim binary, followed by the -d option if you want it to run as a daemon in the background (reccommended) enter username and password to login. The ~/.xinitrc file is executed by default, so be sure to have a working .xinitrc file in your home. Special usernames (commands configurable in the config file): - console: start console login - exit: exit SLiM - halt: halt the system - reboot: reboot the system pressing the F11 key executes a user-specified command (see the configuration file), the default is to take a screenshot if the 'import' program is available.
