Give this a shot, its what I do for Openbox (systemd).
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

Its part of systemd, it obviously isn't an essential part. ;)

Follow Rob's link, if you're using lightdm, then your sorted.

Or you could use x-login-git from AUR.
