I followed this thread to try and launch DWM via Slim;
Here is my /etc/slim.conf;
login_cmd exec /bin/sh - ~/.xinitrc %session sessions openbox,dwm
and here is my ~/.xinitrc;
DEFAULT_SESSION=openbox case $1 in openbox) exec openbox-session ;; dwm) nitrogen --restore & exec dwm ;; *) exec $DEFAULT_SESSION ;; esac
DWM is available as an option in Slim with F1 however when I try and login to DWM I get;
'Failed to execute login command'
Any ideas welcome?
Of course, I could always get rid of Slim but I quite like the Crunchbang theme...
EDIT: If I restore Slim to the default Crunchbang config I can log into Openbox with no problems.

What happens if you disable the Openbox option, and do straight Slim -> DWM? This way you can figure out whether the error is in you trying to use multiple environments (openbox,dwm) or in (the launch of) DWM itself.
EDIT: Perhaps worth taking a look at: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Slim

OK...I discovered SLIMconf from Corenominal
Worked a treat but I have put my DWM tweaking activities on hold for the moment...no time
However, I would recommend the superb livarp as always...DWM out of the box!
DWM out of the box!
Where's the fun in that?
+1 -- someone else's idea of "rational" keybinds? No thank you.
And really, why use SLiM when you can use LightDM, or startx?
