Check here.

When you removed Gnome, you removed the element of Gnome that provided for a graphical login. I think the section at the link on "Starting Xfce" will have some ideas.

You might consider reinstalling Gnome and setting "Session" to XFCE. A number of the Gnome and apps and utilities should run just fine under XFCE and you might find them useful.

It doesn't take all of gnome, just the log-in manager should be fine. The one that is typically used with gnome is GDM. If you prefer something more lightweight (but more limited), you could install wdm instead.
