Yes it is possible, but the last time I have use slim the only shell that was working well with it is sh and csh, I have no Idea if it have been fix since.

Code: Select all

sudo pkg install slim 
To /usr/local/etc/slim.conf make sure that sessiondir is properly setup:

Code: Select all

sessiondir /usr/local/share/xsessions/
and to /etc/rc.conf add

Code: Select all

slim_enable="YES"
and make sure to remove gdm_enable="YES" or put a #.

Code: Select all

#gdm_enable="YES"
