orca-compatible display managers

With gdm and lightdm both are triggered by sudo -H systemctl enable gdm 
or sudo -H systemctl enable lightdm.  When these break though that 
talkingarch install disk is real useful as a rescue disk to run 
systemctl disable commands on those display managers.  I found gdm 
better able to work with orca but the desktop interface is different 
from mate and none too easy to bring up a list of apps.
