Slim is rather simple to set up within the slim.conf
it is rather user friendly and self explanatory
# Available sessions (first one is the default).
# The current chosen session name is replaced in the login_cmd
# above, so your login command can handle different sessions.
# see the xinitrc.sample file shipped with slim sources
#sessions            default,startxfce4,openbox,ion3,icewm,wmaker,blackbox,awesome
sessions            openbox-session , startlxde
it is slimDM that for me is a bugger for me to set up but not imposable.
