Well, it did kill my window manager I had to reinstall LIGHTDM 

it was kinda cool at first, when booting up it would go straight to
terminal entry with

log in:

then it would say your last login was at ...... pm
no new messages

soon as I loged in and startx I went straight to my desktop, but I went
ahead and installed all the LIGHTDM components and rebooted now I get a
graphical log in screen instead of a terminal prompt.
