I'm not the OP. The OP posted the "ExecStart=/etc/init.d/lightdm"
output and claims that it is "UNINSTALLED".

For my install it's the same as for Colin and you.

I pointed out that something is fishy with the OP's install.

IOW 1. lightdm isn't removed
    2. /etc/init.d/lightdm is the wrong location, there should be a
    systemd unit instead
