I configured my system to do an autologin using awesome wm. However, after an upgrade of my Debian Sid (which wasn't without difficulty because of a bug in the package of my graphic driver, I had to reinstall some packages such as SLiM before figuring out a solution.), SLiM is now using Gnome Classic as default WM.

My configuration is the following, feel free to ask me more information, I'll provide anything I can.

Relevant parts of /var/log/slim.log:

login_cmd           exec /bin/bash -login /etc/X11/Xsession %session
sessions            awesome,startxfce4,openbox,ion3,icewm,wmaker,blackbox
default_user        max
auto_login          yes
  • As a temporary workaround, I wrote exec awesome in the file ~/.xsession. – Maxime Nov 27 '13 at 14:15
