Hi Israel

the output is: lightdm is already the newest version
(no upgrade or install done)

I recall that I had to install all versions of lubuntu on this PC (with 
Geforce 6100/nForce 405 graphic card) with nomodeset and installed the 
nvdia driver 304 thereafter, because of immediate screen freezes without 
nomodeset.  Perhaps there is a link to my problem of the latest update 
of 14.10.
