I'm trying to get lightdm to act like a display manager and provide a remote xsession to Xming running on Windows. Its more of an exercise just to see if I could do it, since I can use PuTTY and X11 forward all the clients I like.
I have a laptop with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (clean install, do not like updates) and I installed xubuntu-desktop just to try it.
The problem is that I really do not like it changed my original lightdm configuration to xubuntu lightdm configuration. I want the original ubuntu unity lightdm.

I upgraded to 13.04 from 12.04. I run lightdm. When I login now, i just get a color splash screen and an arrow moves with the mouse but i don't have any of my desktop icons and such. I tried switching to gdm, but I get nothing from gdm. (I just added fvwm-crystal as an optional lightdm desktop, and that lets me login to an fvwm desktop). how do i get the lightdm/gnome desktop working again.
