Setting up Slim

 

 

I was inspired to write this article by a YouTube user. I added the FreeBSD lxde Desktop video to YouTube a long time ago. And once when I went to my channel I saw a comment under my video. In which I was asked how to start lxde I advised through slim and now I am quick to set up slim here.

Simple Login Manager is a graphical display manager or login manager that is configured using the slim.conf file.

First, we will install slim and themes, install from packages or from ports without a difference, I will install from the package:

 

pkg install slim

pkg install slim-themes

To start slim with the system, write in /etc/rc.conf the configuration file is located in

 

/usr/local/etc/slim.conf

 

open it with an editor and look for the lines:

#default_user simone

 

default_user newuser #username

 

here you need to enter the username, then you will not need to enter the username every time you log in.

 

#auto_login no

auto_login yes

 

For automatic login without entering a password, we type yes

 

#current_theme default

curr ent_theme theme name

 

theme can be downloaded separately and edited by yourself, then place it in the directory

 

/usr/share/slim/themes

 

To start DE, you need to comment out the line, and if you need to add DE

 

sessions xfce4, icewm-session, wmaker, blackbox, lxde, openbox

 

After starting slim at the start of the system, you need to select a session, select the session using F1

 

All setup is complete.
