in a Debian wheezy/sid system:

1/ wget

2/  sudo dpkg -i

3/ /etc/X/xorg.conf (see [1]):

4/ sudo apt-get install slim
5/ sudo apt-get install xfce4

[1] /etc/X/xorg.conf

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool,
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
