I just installed Kubuntu alongside Ubuntu 12.04, and it changed my login screen. I liked the Ubuntu one and would like to set it back to the default. How can i do that?

Run this command in the terminal-

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm

You will get the following screen:


then enter on OK and you will get a screen similar to this with listings as KDM and LIGHTDM

configure lightdm

scroll down the navigation to lightdm and press enter.

you will get the ubuntu login screen back.
