I've set everything correctly but when I go to slim I get two options: Xsession and fluxbox. Both of them send me to the same thing: a black screen with a X In the middle, I believe it is the twm session that I've uninstalled (I've it installled before just to test Xorg)

You need to create a ~/.xinitrc that selects the WM based on the selection made in SLiM.

Something like:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

case $1 in
        "dwm") exec /etc/X11/Sessions/dwm ;;
        "e16") exec /usr/share/e16/misc/starte16 ;;
    "fluxbox") exec startfluxbox ;;
            *) exec startfluxbox ;;
esac

SLiM is a pain.
