Already did that, same result.

This works with "LXDE". Just for reference

$ ls /usr/share/xsessions

$ ls /var/log/lightdm/
ls: cannot open directory /var/log/lightdm/: Permission denied

$ ls -ld /var/log/lightdm/
drwx--x--x 2 root root 4096 iul 31 01:09 /var/log/lightdm/

Could you please make that rwxr-xr-x instead? Especially since 
lightdm.log is world readable. Shall I attach a lightdm.log from a 
failed attempt?
