You should read the help file for d.slide.show or even open it with it's gui
window. Almost all GRASS modules have very detailed on-line help that
describe their options and often give examples, along with references. This
should be the first place you go to learn how to use any GRASS function.

There is a flag to display vector data. Also, you need to specify how many
images will be shown simultaneously in the display. You set this with the
across= and down= options.
