By removing the file manager, removed the desktop. How do I repair or replace it?

Manjaro Xfce Lysia 20.03 Deleted thunar file manager, replaced with pcmanfm. I reboot and there is no desktop - one black background and my xfce panels. I realized what I did, installed thunar back, but again there was no desktop. in the desktop settings it is displayed: "The desktop manager is not active" - if I am not mistaken, (and this is still translated, I am mistaken))

Open a virtual console: ctrl+alt+f1-f6(pick a number between 1 and 6)
Login: With your user account
Install the desktop environment of your choice: Install Desktop Environments

I think I know what you mean now, you need to enable pcmanfm to autostart at login.
