Can't Run Lightdm

When I try to run lightdm I get this error message:

** (lightdm:3547): WARNING **: Error getting user list from org.freedesktop.Accounts: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Accounts was not provided by any .service files

If I try to automatically run lightdm at start via raspi-config it keeps asking me name and password, basically it accepts them and after a couple of seconds of black screen it asks me again.

I have a PI model B, overclock doesn't matter.
Raspbian Jessie Lite
Version: February 2016
Release date: 2016-02-26
Kernel version: 4.1

What should I do?

Ditch Jessie Lite in favour of full-fat Jessie. Work on removing things from Jessie rather than adding things to Jessie Lite.

Thanks for your answer DougieLawson, I chose Lite because Full won't fit on my 4GB (3.8GB real) SD.
I'll buy a new one if there's no other way to fix this.

The minimum size is 8GB now, unless you really want to run entirely headless.
