I wanted to use i3 but it kept refusing, so what I did is I removed everything about XFCE so that LinuxLite has no choice but to choose i3. When I rebooted I see the original Linux Lite wallpaper and I entered my login and pass and then I see the Debian logo and the Fedora Desktop style Window Manager. I'm stuck...

This is what it says when I run env

EDIT: I did "i3 --replace &" it didn't worked, didn't worked either and it was just saying I was already running a window manager.

EDIT 2: I choose gdm and now everything is working perfectly, but I prefer lightdm for the look of the login screen. Oh well.
