exec enlightenment_start

to ~/.xinitrc
but after rebooting, i still cannot start e17
execute

enlightenment_start

, i can see the errors:

Re: Enlightenment cannot initialize Ecore_X!

I have exacly the same problem, except I compiled whole E17 from sources..
I had no problems when I installed it from Official repos as you did, and logged in using LXDM.

Re: Enlightenment cannot initialize Ecore_X!

instead of enlightenment_start, try:

startx

I second what w201 said. You need to start the x server before starting E17, which is what startx (or xinit) does. The line you added to the xinitrc is what starts enlightenment.
