	      is required for theme preview.

	      preview of the default theme

STARTING SLIM AT BOOT
       Please refer to documentation of	your Operating System to make slim au-
       tomatically 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 op-
       tions.

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)
