How do you have xfce type out your username like in gnome logout screen?

Gnome automatically types in your username everytime you attempt to login.

How do you achieve this in XFCE4?

XFCE4 is by far superior in everything else to gnome so far, been only 2 days.

Maybe just use gdm3 instead of lightdm?

Lightdm is what xfce4 installs by default.

Kernel: x86_64 Linux 4.13.0-1-amd64

To enable user list in lightdm, place the following settings into
/usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/01_my.conf:
Code: Select all
[SeatDefaults]
greeter-hide-users=false
Debian 9 / Xfce4
