Thank you for sharing your configuration with EXWM.

I added the LXQt service to my config because at this point I would be
happy to have any type of desktop or window manager if I could start X.
However I do not even get to the point where there is a graphical login
prompt or selection of window manager or desktop environment.  I am
still just getting a blinking cursor on tty7.
