Do you know what x11/slim is?
You installed it but you are not using it....
I installed it and I are using it, for example, I used command ls / in terminal:

I installed Firefox:

My tutorial of installation of Lumina Desktop on FreeBSD 11.1 are wrong?

EDIT:
It is not necessary to use the command #pkg install slim to install Lumina Desktop in FreeBSD 11.1.

I was able to install Lumina Desktop in FreeBSD 11.1 using the following commands:

1. by terminal


Code:
#login:root
     
# pkg install xorg

# pkg install lumina

2. edit ee .xinitrc

Code:
#ee .xinitrc

exec start-lumina-desktop
3. after login

Code:
#startx
I also installed GIMP:

You got it :)
slim is a login manager. Not required nor part of lumina.


Obs, another thing I just stumbled over....
I see you created .xinitrc as root and from the screenshot it shows you are actually running Xorg/lumina as root.
Don't do that!
Create a useraccount.

Read the Handbook, 3.3 User and Basic Account Management.
The user you create with adduser,must then be added to the video or wheel group (wheel makes more sense in your case).
After you created your user account, use pw groupmod wheel -m [I]yourusername[/I].
Read the whole page and keep an eye on the sections 3.3.2.1 and 3.3.2.5 especially.

k.jacker,

The Linux Help tutorial teaches to install MATE and XFCE Desktop using the command #pkg install slim and also created .xinitrc as root:

How to install MATE Desktop in FreeBSD: https://www.linuxhelp.com/how-to-install-mate-desktop-in-freebsd/

How to install XFCE desktop in FreeBSD: https://www.linuxhelp.com/how-to-install-xfce-desktop-in-freebsd/

The Linux Help tutorials that I quoted above are wrongs?

As I said. Read the FreeBSD Handbook.

I looked at the tutorials you linked to.
They are completely useless, most of it is either not needed or horribly wrong.
Please... the Handbook is the official documentaion for FreeBSD and get familiar with the man(1) pages as well.
Don't blindly follow instructions written by idiots on the internet.
