If you want a different session for the default, you can modify this option.

Manually add the following line in the [SeatDefaults] section of (sudo gedit) /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:

[SeatDefaults] user-session=true

greeter-theme=unity

greeter-session=unity-greeter

user-session=ubuntu.desktop


The list of user sessions is in /usr/share/xsessions, although even that location is configurable.
