Are you calling /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults in your postinst
for your lightdm theme?  That's generally what needs to set the session
and greeter.

  lightdm won't start I have console(s) only

Status in “lightdm” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On install of ubuntustudio 12.04 alpha (jan 26, but others for about a
  week now) boot never gets to lightdm. I can log in on a console
  terminal ok. The lightdm log complains about missing
  /usr/share/xgreeters/default.desktop. putting a link in that directory
  to lightdm-gtk-greeter.desktop (ln -s lightdm-gtk-greeter.desktop
  default.desktop) seems to correct this problem. Oneric (xubuntu) just
  has lightdm-gtk-greeter.desktop and works fine.
