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"
