       screen.

	      is required for theme preview.

	      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)
