My hard drive got full yesterday and some weird things started to happen, like uGet not working anymore and the trash can not emptying. I switched to another OS and cleaned some stuff in the Xubuntu's partition. However, when I restarted the computer, the login GUI changed to this and I can't fix it. Does anyone know how to get back the original xfce interface? Ugly login GUI image

  • Turns out that I tried to download the XDM download manager (uGet wasn't working) and installed a display manager called xdm instead. The reconfigure command worked, I switched back to the lightdm. Thanks! – GuiSDT Jul 26 '18 at 22:37

I don't konow which displaymanager Xubuntu uses normaly. But you can run the comand to reconfigure your Display manager:

 sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm

If it is missing try to install it:

 sudo apt install lightdm

Insead of lightdm you can also use gdm3 wich is the default for Ubuntu (Gnome).
