What?

This repository is an attempt to produce an immediately usable (no patches required) maintained (open issues are to be resolved) non-distribution specific version of the SLiM display manager that works both with and without systemd, and, eventually, with both X11 and Wayland.

What is SLiM?

SLiM (Simple Login Manager) is a graphical login manager (display manager). It aims to be simple, fast and independent from the various desktop environments. SLiM is based on Login.app by Per Lidén.

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
  • Lightweight

Installation

See the INSTALL file.

Usage

To launch slim, execute run the slim binary. Run slim -h for available options.

Enter username and password to login. 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 F1 key changes the session type. The ~/.xinitrc file is executed by default, so be sure to have a working .xinitrc file in your home.

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.

Configuration

slim.conf is the main configuration file. Options are explained in the file itself.

Themes

See THEMES file.

Development

This repository started from a rebase of https://github.com/iwamatsu/slim (also https://github.com/gsingh93/slim-display-manager, which is a GitHub mirror of the original BerliOS repository http://slim.berlios.de/, which is dead, also archived at https://sourceforge.net/projects/slim.berlios/; at the moment of creation of this repository all archived versions matched) on top of the common ancestor of https://github.com/iwamatsu/slim and https://github.com/AeroNotix/slim-git to produce a repository with all of the commit history of SLiM 1.3.6 (see the-rebase branch). Then, all the non-distribution-specific patches of https://github.com/AeroNotix/slim-git, https://github.com/axs-gentoo/slim-git, https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/tree/x11-misc/slim/files, https://gitweb.gentoo.org/proj/musl.git/tree/x11-misc/slim/files, and https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs were applied on top. Most patches were edited to keep the original code style of SLiM.
