How to install xorg on top of Salix core
The easiest way to install Xorg on top of Salix core is to install everything under the /x repository directory. To do that, first update your package database
and then run:
slapt-get --install-set x
That will install every package that is in the /x directory and will give you a working Xorg. It would be a good idea to install some icon themes, or many apps won't display properly:
slapt-get -i icon-naming-utils hicolor-icon-theme tango-icon-theme
Install a Window Manager
Most people would want something other than TWM, so you can install a minimal window manager, like icewm or fluxbox:
slapt-get -i icewm
slapt-get -i fluxbox
or similar for the one you want to install.
To make that window manager the default for your user, do
cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinit.icewm ~/.xinitrc
for icewm, or
cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinit.fluxbox ~/.xinitrc
for fluxbox, or similar for any other window manager, you get the point.
You can now test your favourite minimal window manager with:
If you want to have a graphical login screen, you have to install gdm or slim:
slapt-get -i gdm
slapt-get -i slim
Perhaps it's a good idea to test gdm/slim before you set it as default. Start the graphical login manager with:
If it works you can edit /etc/inittab and replace the following lines
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6) id:3:initdefault:
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6) id:4:initdefault:
You can then add any graphical apps you might be needing with slapt-get.
You can of course remove any unnecessary Xorg packages that you may not need.
