    Red face How do I make this work? Ubuntu minimal + slim + i3

    I don't know if i should've opened this in absolute beginner section or here, since im not an ABSOLUTE beginner but i am a newbie n_n

    So I installed ubuntu minimal 12.10 (the 30 mb version), following this tutorial http://maketecheasier.com/install-a-...top/2012/02/24 right up to "Post installation".
    Now, I don't want to use gdm or open box, id like to use slim as a login manager and i3 as a tiling window manager (and a lot of other programs but they are not the problem).
    I reached the post installation part in the tutorial, as ive said, and installed i3 and slim using the apt-get install command from the console mode.
    Now i have no idea how to configure ubuntu to start in graphical mode starting slim, trough which i can login and start an i3 session.

    Can you please help me?
