Bug Description

I noticed that many services are starting before lightdm although a desktop user doesn't need them until he logged into his desktop environment.

The below services are starting too early in the boot sequence comparing to lightdm :
- anacron
- cron
- cupsd
...

Of course anacron and cron will wait a lower load or a delay before starting the tasks. However, the launch of those daemons will slow down the boot process.

You can see tty{1,2,3,4,5,6} which are starting before lightdm.

On a desktop computer, it would also help to start the ssh daemon after the lightdm greater.

I installed a ssh daemon on my desktop computer because it is used by a "backuppc" service on my network.
