Is lightdm actually the manager you are/were using?

What is lightdm's status?

   sudo systemctl status lightdm

Can you start lightdm manually once booted and logged into a console?

   sudo systemctl start lightdm

I don't run 16.04 yet, so am not sure the above commands are correct
for 16.04. They are correct for 15.10.
