Trying to get my login manager (SLiM) to use Enlightenment.

I'm using this guide. I manage to start SLiM, login, and the screen keeps going back to login prompt again.

Output of the slim log file only shows:

Code:
slim: unexpected signal 1
slim: connection to X server lost.


I have dbus running

Code:
meeseeks /home/bigun # ps -A | grep dbus
20811 ?        00:00:00 dbus-daemon


From console I can login as my user and run startx without issue.

Unsure where to go from here.

did you read that and tried?

You may have to add an entry to your X sessions directory, if you use SLiM for example

Code:
root # echo "enlightenment_start" >> /etc/X11/Sessions/Enlightenment
root # chmod +x /etc/X11/Sessions/Enlightenment

Yes

After a reboot, I tested again, it starts Xorg, but doesn't start enlightenment and has one Xterm window open.
