LightDM is a Login manager.

You need Xorg for it to work.

  sudo pacman -S xorg

chose all when you install it.

LightDM requiers a greeter to work.

Easiest is to install it with a default greeter.

  sudo pacman -S lightdm-gtk-greeter

enable the service for it to run at startup.

  sudo systemctl enable lightdm.service

This is how it looks like
