dpkg -l|grep lxdm gave no results.
To make sure I did
sudo apt-get purge lubuntu-desktop
and reinstall ubuntu-desktop
lightdm is still installed and again I did
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm
But still no talking login screen. I set my laptop to automatically 
login so when my wife wants to use her account I then change for another 
user in de system menu.
