    Hello Hector Lopez,

    you have to change two files: /home/tux/.xinitrc and /etc/slim.conf.

    When you will edit the first one, you will see a list of cases, each one corresponding to a different wm. Add one more case for awesome, probably like this:
    case $1 in
    exec enlightenment_start ;;
    exec openbox-session ;;
    exec dwm-session ;;
    lxpanel &
    exec jwm ;;
    exec awesome ;;
    exec $WM ;;

    Also modify the line setting the defautl wm (probably "WM=openbox-session" which should be changed to "WM=awesome").

    In /etc/slim.conf, look for the for the line starting with "sessions" and add awesome as the first one (it is the default) like this:
    # Available sessions (first one is the default).
    # The current chosen session name is replaced in the login_cmd
    # above, so your login command can handle different sessions.
    # see the xinitrc.sample file shipped with slim sources
    sessions awesome,openbox,e17,jwm

    Restart Slitaz. Awesome will be the default wm. If you want to use another one, press repeatdly the F1 key when you're in front of slim's login window.
