SlimGnewsense (a SLiM theme for gNewSense)

I have developed SlimGnewsense a quite simple and light SLiM theme for gNewSense (a fully free GNU/Linux distribution).

SLiM (Simple Login Manager) is a desktop-independent graphical login manager for X. It aims to be light and simple, although completely configurable through themes and an option file; is suitable for machines with low hardware resources and/or machines on which remote login functionalities are not needed.

The SlimGnewsense 1.1 theme is available at the SlimGnewSense downloads page of this site.

The SlimGnewsense theme consists of:

  • a configuration file (config.theme), released under the GNU GPLv3 license;
  • a background image (background.png) with the gNewSense logo, released under the CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported license;
  • a panel (login) image (panel.png), released under the CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported license.

To install the SlimGnewsense 1.1 theme:

  • download the compressed theme file and unpack it (you will have a slim-gnewsense-1.1 folder):

    $ wget href="
    $ tar -jxvf slim-gnewsense-1.1.tar.bz2
  • move the theme folder to the SLiM’s themes folder:

    $ sudo mv slim-gnewsense-1.1  /usr/share/slim/themes
  • edit the SLiM configuration file (/etc/slim.conf) the way to set the current-theme option row to:
    current-theme slim-gnewsense-1.1
