You CAN install X11 and launch EmulationStation with xinit emulationstation i use this command to launch Attract Mode, wich require Xorg, from EmulationStation in Retropie on Raspberry pi 2.

I try with other distribution…


I make some changes to prevent start X11:

root@gamestation-turbo:~# cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager 
# /usr/sbin/lightdm

And changes in inittab

# /etc/inittab: init(8) configuration.
# $Id: inittab,v 1.91 2002/01/25 13:35:21 miquels Exp $

# The default runlevel.

Then I try with:

xinit emulationstation

And the results:
