orca-compatible display managers

I don't know why startx was complaining about an nvidia card since when
I ran the card identification command on the arch wiki page the card was
identified as a radeon r370. Be that as it may, I got radeon packages
downloaded and startx when run allows me to login and running orca
starts orca up but nothing is displayed on the screen after that happens
probably since I didn't have xorg run mate for me correctly yet.
Interestingly the nvidia instructions had the card identification
command in them but I didn't find it in the radeon instructions so
reading through nvidia material wasn't a total loss.
