Hi all. Just a quick announcement. For users on Linux using Debian-derived platforms, including Ubuntu, we now have a very nice installer script courtesy of Bryce Carson, which downloads, builds, and installs both slim and SLiMgui for you. The use of it is documented in a new revision of the SLiM 3.5 manual, which can be downloaded from http://benhaller.com/slim/SLiM_Manual.pdf
or from the SLiM home page. The title page of the new revision is dated 3 January 2021; if you try to download the new revision and get the original SLiM 3.5 manual instead, you need to clear your browser cache – sometimes a source of confusion. The new installer is documented in section 2.2.1. Thanks to Bryce for this very useful contribution!
