Wiktionary in English has a page here with frequency lists for a number of languages, but the section on Slovene has but 50 words:
je , in , se , v , da , na , so , ne , pa , ki , bi , za , z , ni , sem , ga , še , po , s , tako , ko , tudi , to , bil , ali , si , mu , od , bilo , kot , že , iz , kaj , bo , če , vse , bila , kakor , mi , pri , jo , kar , jih , sta , o , do , ti , kako , samo , me
Not very useful, especially since the most frequent words are mostly particles and various conjugations of the verb to be. Today though by chance (looking for the meaning of zanj) I came across this page in the Slovene Wiktionary, with not just one but seven lists of the 2000 most frequently used words in the language, each from a different source. The words in the list are also declined and conjugated, which is what I prefer for a frequency list. Especially for a heavily declined language like Slovene/ian where the dictionary form of a word will often not help at all in recognizing a written text.
