I tried to install a lightdm greeter theme but after dissapointing results I chose to try gdm instead, which prety much reconfigured my desktop theme, so I chose to remove them both. Since the last boot the computer gets stuck at the boot screen (whom always to happened to show "could not mount /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 M for manual S for skip" for a while, which I always just could ignore:
Ubuntu boot screen
Which shows no Hard Disk activity after a while. Waiting for 5 minutes and it still not booting I tried to work around it by:

  1. Pressing ctrl+alt+f2 to enter CLI, Logging in from the CLI and running startx.

  2. This presents me the desktop interface without Unity, so I opened a terminal and used the command unity.

  3. Re-installing the removed packages, but to no avail.

package manager

OK. So now I have the desktop environment, but I just want to get into my desktop environment the regular way.

UPDATE:
GDM works, opened terminal and entered command sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm and rebooted. Xorg started as well as Unity, But I want the Unity GUI. Until I find a way to do that I will stick with this.

Sorry, I didn't mention I re-installed them. See my edit please –  Nkciy84 Jan 25 at 18:29
    
I just replaced the old one with the newest log. Which log file would be better? –  Nkciy84 Jan 25 at 19:29
    
And yes, that's correct. No login screen –  Nkciy84 Jan 25 at 19:43
