Perhaps you need to install the other window manager into the system
profile, not your user profile?  You might be able to do that if you add
the window manager package to the "packages" field of your operating
system configuration file.  You will need to run "guix system
reconfigure", though.

Maybe if you do that, you will be able to select the other window
manager via F1 at the SLiM login screen.

I don't use startx, so I don't know enough to answer this question.
Maybe someone else can help?
