Add all special user names to login window
There are special login names that perform special functions, such as "halt", "reboot" and "console". All such special user names should be listed on the login window so that the user is aware of them.
Agree entirely this should be done, and here is what I propose it should say:
Special usernames (commands configurable in the config file):
- console: start console login
- exit: exit SLiM
- halt: halt the system (root password required)
- reboot: reboot the system (root password required)
See /usr/share/doc/slim/README for details
Thanks for adding your voice to this idea.

The panel is a narrow vertical strip. Everything entered on the panel is in pixels and absolute position. I've heard it has a mind of it's own.
@hellekin - Any chance you can take a look at this request and also the one telling users to change DEs with F1?
See the commit above. I have a couple of problems with this approach: 1) it's a case of RTFM; 2) it only works for English speakers, so we should have a version in all languages supported by Devuan, which is a lot of extra work. That's the burden of using languages in images (even the "login" is problematic when you only understand "\xe0\xa4\xb2\xe0\xa4\x97 - \xe0\xa4\x87\xe0\xa4\xa8")
Once we figured out the right placement for
username_ywe can include it in the
Another issue with adding special username
consoleis found in the source code:
debian/README.Debian. The packages recommends
xtermmay not be installed, in which case entering
consoleas the username will fail. This is non-trivial.
