Why lightdm instead of TDM?

According to you also 
have Intel gfx, which lspci -nnk | grep -A4 VGA missed showing.

That means you need a special (optimus or bumblebee) driver instead of the 
generic nouveau, nouveau or intel FOSS Xorg drivers that your Xorg logs show in 

Mine with only GeForce on host big31 running Jessie with 4.9 kernel:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] 
[10de:0a65] (rev a2)
Main difference between our gfxchips is that yours is mobile and connects to bus 
differently, but I'd expect same behavior.

Screenshot of 3840x1200 120DPI TDE desktop:

I get the same result with xserver-xorg-video-modesetting installed and with or 
without xserver-xorg-video-nouveau installed.

I don't think I can suggest anything more that might be helpful, since I have no 
hardware requiring either of those special drivers.
