I installed XFCE on top of elementary os to help me transition to pantheon. However, now that I'm ready to fully switch to this beautiful desktop environment I realized that I need to restart lightdm and login a couple of times before the DE actually starts.
Other info that might be useful is that I am using an external monitor connected with a VGA cable to my laptop (hp probook g4), but I would like to learn how I can track down what's going on and be able to try to fix it myself or at least post a meaningful log here.
Anyhow, I think it's just a matter of resetting a few configurations somewhere but don't know which ones. Sorry for the noob question.
