    It sort of sounds to me like XGL is loading but Compiz isn't.

    Did you add cgwd & and compiz --replace gconf & to your sessions?

    If you want to uninstall, I think what you need to do is:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom
    then delete the following lines out that you should have already entered earlier:

    Code:
    0=Xgl
    
    [server-Xgl]
    name=Xgl server
    command=/usr/bin/Xgl :0 -fullscreen -ac -accel glx:pbuffer -accel xv:fbo -kb
    flexible=true
    if you added a startcompiz (or similar) script to your session startup, you need to go back in, and take it out.

    Then go to synaptic, and search for xserver-xgl. If it truly was installed, remove it.

    You should reboot to a normal xorg server.

    Basically what you're doing is the reverse of what you did when you followed the how-to on installing it.

    anytime i've checked that file, during these tragic events, there has never been anything after [ server ]

    i'm not sure what the session startup files are. if you mean .xsession and .xinitrc, both of those are blank.

    obviously, xgl is not ready for the desktops of total morons who have no idea wtf they're doing. (we need a 't*rd smiley.)

    Why don't you go to their irc channel and ask? They have excellent support.

    Re: i don't understand...uh, compiz

    woooooooooooooohooooooooooooooooooo!!!1 i got gnome back. i couldn't find any of the things in gdm.conf-custom that everyone was suggesting i needed to get rid of, so i just went into synaptic and removed all the xgl/compiz stuff and now, gnome is back.

    thanks everyone for your help on my way into stupid and on my way back out. and thanks for your patience, as well. (is it really silly to feel elated over something like this?)

    In all fairness, I think the problems came up because you ran a script that automates something that at this point should be done step by step.

    There are a few guides out there that offer awesome 'stepbystep' 'copyandpaste' instructions.

    Don't mean to take anything away from the author, because it seems to have worked great for a lot of people.

    looking at the screenshots threads, it's obvious a lot of people are getting it working and a number of people got it working from that script. i just wasn't one of them.
