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.
