HELP! I wanted to change my login screen to a different one. When I logged out and logged back in, I just get the little spinning thing that went on for almost an hour. It seems the login screen I chose was bad cause I cant get in. I can log in from terminal by doing alt-ctrl-f2 but it wont let me do STARTX to get back to make login window adjustment. I want to change back to the original login screen but it seems there's something with "GDM" that wont let me access SYSTEM>ADMINISTRATION>LOGIN WINDOW

That happened to me once, it turned out to be a faulty GDM theme. After what seemed like forever, it finally brought up the screen. I logged on and deleted it.
