I've tried to install xmonad on a 1804.02 server, following this guide


I've installed the following components, but failed to get a working desktop-like environment.

sudo apt install dmenu rxvt-unicode-256color x11-xserver-utils xinint xmonad xmobar

What did I miss?

Note1: I wish to have a pure X11 based setup. Can we achieve it without a display manager?

Note2: please don't post about desktop Ubuntu installation, I want to keep this as lean as possible, based on a minimal server installation.
