did you give the user a password. You will need to or it will not login. I have created a user many times and forgot to give it a password for login. This will cause this issue.
If this is not the issue let me know. make sure you gave it the standard permission when doing your adduser.

Quote:

With Slim if you read close you will need to take a copy of your /root/.xinitrc how I did it I logged in as root copied to my /home/newuser and then changed the permissions to that user
this is explained in the help files of Slim.
this is a hidden file so show hidden files.

hello

Problem solved.
The last remark. Copying the .xinitrc did the trick.
