It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

@EliahKagan I have not found the answer to the main thrust of the question: the GUI won't boot. The only thing I figured out was that I was stupidly trying to boot from a USB with the wrong USB. I still don't have the GUI back when I take the USB out. Sorry if I was unclear.

No luck reinstalling lightdm. And yes, I could wipe the computer and start from scratch, but I'd really like to avoid that if at all possible.

No luck with startx. And reinstalling all the packages that I uninstalled is somewhat counterproductive. I'd rather just find the specific thing that's causing the problem and fix that.
