#Requirements

Currently slstatus works on FreeBSD, Linux and OpenBSD. In order to build slstatus you need the Xlib header files.

#Installation

Edit config.mk to match your local setup (slstatus is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install slstatus (if necessary as root):

make clean install

#Running slstatus

See the man page for details.

#Configuration

slstatus can be customized by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the source code. This keeps it fast, secure and simple.

#Upcoming

A release (v1.0) will come soon... ;) After a long phase of inactivity, development has been continued!
