README

README file for SLiM

Rob Pearce <slim@flitspace.org.uk>

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 was originally based on the last stable release of 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
- PAM support for authentication
- Compatible with ConsoleKit or logind, OpenRC or systemd, etc.
- CMake build procedure

INSTALLATION
see the INSTALL file

USAGE
SLiM is intended to be run automatically as part of the system
startup. Get your SysVInint, OpenRC or systemd to run the slim
executable, with the -d option if you want it to run as a daemon
in the background (recommended for OpenRC, systemd may work
better without)

As you would expect of a login manager, you enter your username
and password to login. By default, the ~/.xinitrc file is run,
so be sure to have a working .xinitrc file in your home. This
behaviour is configurable, and may be set up differently by the
distro package.

Special usernames can be entered to run commands that are
configurable in the config file:
- console: start a console login
- exit: exit SLiM (this may not have desirable results)
- halt: shut down 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.

CONFIGURATION
/etc/slim.conf is the main configuration file. Alternative files
can be specified on the command line.
Options are explained in the file itself

THEMES
The appearance (and some parts of the behaviour) of SLiM depends
on the "theme" specified by the configuration file. See the file
THEMES for details.
