How do I replace lightdm with startx?

I don’t need a display manager. I’ll want to boot into either XFCE or qtile tiling window manager. In my scenario, how do I remove lightdm and use startx?

Here is how to auto start X

Then you can disable lightdm.service and uninstall the lightdm packages.

I recommend backing up / snapshoting your system before attempting this.
