Right.. Looks like there's no display manager installed. Depending on your 
favorite environment, could you install one of sddm, lxdm or gdm ?

On my side, I used sddm.

This can be set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf in some cases (e.g. for nvidia 
hardware). Now, most of the required information is retrieved from hardware by 
Xorg. xorg.conf can usually be removed (except with nvidia driver).
