[ubuntu] Unity No Longer default GUI at login

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have asked this elsewhere and gotten absolutely nowhere. Yesterday while at the login screen for 11.10 I stupidly chose "Recovery Console" from the little gear menu. What happened after that is that a small terminal window opened in the top left of my screen. At this point the keyboard would not enter anything. I hit CTRL-ALT-F1 and got to a login prompt. I login and everything seems OK. I do a sudo shutdown -r now and the machine comes back up in the recovery console and again, I can't type. Maybe it is the USB keyboards I have tried, I don't know but a PS2 style keyboard is (Hardware)
