How do you get into X on Slack? Do you boot into a gui, or do you startx?

If you startx, edit .xinitrc in your user's home directory to have the commands listed, something similar to this:
Xsetroot /path/to/image &
gkrellm -w &
exec /path/to/window/manager
replacing the /path/to with the actual paths of course
