After boot go automatically to graphical login screen

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I installed Ubuntu 18.04.6 desktop and then lubuntu-desktop.
Now the system boots to non-graphical login screen. The user of the laptop
will have to press ctrl+alt+F7 to go to graphical login screen.

Is there some configuration file where I can set it to go automatically to graphical
login screen?

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

I would suggest to (re)install special Lubuntu Desktop task package by

sudo apt-get install --reinstall lubuntu-desktop^

In the above command note ^ at the end, it is task. It will install all the packages which Lubuntu installation has out the box.

Then reboot.

Method 2

I would try to install gdm3, because it is robust and works with practically everything. Then, choose it as the default display manager.

sudo apt install gdm3 && sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm3

the command will install gdm3 and then bring up a screen to choose a default display manager. Please choose gdm3

Reboot, and you should get a gui login screen.

You can do it! I have faith in you!

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
