Thanks for the suggestions, Ralf!

Unfortunatly, I can't get any clue from those two files.

The only Error in Xorg.0.log is the complain tha it can't compile keymap.

In lightdm.log, I can find only messages from stopping the service.

Unfortunately, both files contain no absolute timestamps, but only seconds
sonce the boot. Therefore, it gets next to impossible to see what happened

Anyway, when I reboot, none of those files are touched. Thus, it looks like
there is no attempt to start the lightdm service.
