If you are lucky, make sure you have "tdm-trinity" installed and remove all other login managers. This should work. 

But I suspect you won't be so lucky and  your distribution wants you to run a "systemd certified login manager for simplicity and enhanced user experience" - otherwise there will be no X and no TDE. In this case install xdm or lightdm or whatever your disto wants you to and praise the great LP for his masterpiece - or you won't have TDE.
