I wanted to test out XFCE, so I installed Xubuntu-Desktop, but unfortunately, it's changed my logonscreen, and all those other types of pre/post session screens. How do I return them to the Gnome defaults? I can't find any options within Gnome itself, like I could in my brief fling with KDE.

Thanks for your time.

I will post detailed information later. You will have to change multiple things to get them back to normal. –  RolandiXor Mar 20 '11 at 1:49

You need to update the default splash screen. For that you need to type:

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

It should present a list of alternative splash-screens. Select the one your want.

Run this in terminal:

dpkg-reconfigure gdm

and say that you want gdm to be default login manager.

I ran the command and it just returned to the prompt. Nothing happened: the logon screen, the startup and shutdown screens are all still xubuntu. –  dawmail333 Mar 20 '11 at 2:38
