      Some users don’t want to use any login manager and prefer startx after logging in at the console (as user).
      For this to work, install xserver-xorg-legacy
      Then you should be able to startx as user.
      If not, edit /etc/X11/Xwrapper file to include these lines:

      allowed_users = console
      needs_root_rights = yes

      Apparently, you will not need to edit that file if you first login as user, su to root then

      apt install --reinstall xserver-xorg-legacy

      However, this will not give you the same desktop as default antiX with login manager. It will give you the min or minimal options listed below.

      Instead of typing startx, you should type something like this:

      startx /usr/local/bin/desktop-session icewm

      Available options:

      rox-icewm
      icewm
      zzz-icewm
      min-icewm
      minimal-icewm
      rox-fluxbox
      fluxbox
      zzz-fluxbox
      min-fluxbox
      minimal-fluxbox
      rox-jwm
      jwm
      zzz-jwm
      min-jwm
      minimal-jwm
      herbstluftwm

      antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.
