I have a new Gentoo system and I need to install a login manager. I was told about slim because it is light weight. But after reading about it it uses xdm window manager and I use Compiz Fusion(which I start with xinit). Is there a way to change the window manager of slim to compiz fusion?

personally i use

Code:
[I] lxde-base/lxdm
     Available versions:  0.4.1-r5 0.4.1-r7 ~0.4.1-r8 0.4.1-r9 {consolekit debug gtk3 nls pam}
     Installed versions:  0.4.1-r9(13:13:40 16.07.2014)(consolekit nls pam -debug -gtk3)
     Homepage:            http://lxde.org
     Description:         LXDE Display Manager



and it works very well and lists any possbile solution so far for my installed packages. I do not run a common environment.

Slim did not worked for several releases here.

In short, you may try lxdm and forget about slim. Sorry it is not an answer but a working workaround for myself
