Unhappy Lubuntu lightdm autologin

Hi I freshly installed Lubuntu 14.04

I disabled lightdm autostarting by editing /etc/default/grub

Well.. I got some problems

1. "sudo service lightdm start" is working but startx command always freezes at "Loading extensions GLX

2. When I turn on computer I have to login console
and when I type "sudo service lightdm start" I have to input password again
and finally when Lightdm is started I have to login again
that's very bothering me

What I want to do is when I login into console it should be possible to login into Xwindows directly with currentuser who logined console

Did you create an .xinitrc ?

exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session startlxde
Adding that to ~/.xinitrc will run the lxde desktop when you type "startx".
