Anyway, I know that is not the question. But I suggest u try Google for individual tools. Also please be specific next time, with little more details like what version of the OS you are using ...

sudo apt-get install gdm sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop And when PC asks which display to use, select "gdm". This should do the trick. This does not install GNOME on your desktop-it gives you the full Ubuntu GNOME Experience without installing a fresh OS.

The repositories have been removed, if you check the contents of those files, you will find them empty. I don't know why they were not removed and I would call that a bug in add-apt-repository unless empty files are removed by default on reboot or similar. In any case, for future reference, you can always simply delete the files manually: sudo rm ...
