I always boot to multiuser / runlevel 3 and start X from there.  For
LXDE I use the following to put the correct command in ~/.Xclients
echo 'exec startlxde' >> $XCLIENTS
If you are always going to start LXDE, you should only have to do that
Once that is in place, it is only necessary to run 
startx -- vt10 
to put the desktop on F10, so that messages will appear on F1.  You can
just run startx if you want the desktop on F1.

I am using openbox as the desktop manager when I start LXDE
(set in the LXDE configuration file,
.config/lxsession/LXDE/desktop.conf).  I haven't tried sddm, it might
just work if it is your default if you use the above procedure.
