Had you tried other desktop environments?
You can look in /var/log/apt:
Usually the history.log is most useful, but notice that once it gets about so big the older parts of the log get archived as .1.gz, .2.gz, etc, etc.Code:lance@lance-desktop:~$ ls /var/log/apt history.log history.log.1.gz term.log term.log.1.gz
Of all the desktop environments you've tried in 14.04 which did you like the best?
Every other desktop enviroment has cool little tweaks but overall I like Ubuntu the most.
Now i've added the Numix theme to my Ubuntu to give it a bit of a nicer look to it.
I see you've installed 'gnome-shell', 'gnome-shell-extensions', 'gnome-session-flashback, 'fvwm-crystal', and 'unity8-desktop-session-mir'. Then you later purged the meta-packages but just running autoremove leaves a lot of cruft.
If you give me about 24 hours I'll cook up some commands to try and get back to a pure Ubuntu but even then there are no guarantees.
Do yourself a favor though and remove 'tasksel' before it eats your whole desktop:
That bug has reared it's head off and on for many years.
The link you send me already gave me an error when i try the second test case ^^

I also notice that you installed bum and rcconf. Why?
Were you following some guide like this:
If so just chalk it up to experience and reinstall.
