gnome wont start



Hello all,
I recently ran into a problem with Gnome.
It fails to start at all. I am able to get a working ui by using the
startx command, and it seems like it is a gnomish environment (windows
key brings up the Activities selected or what have you)

Gnome used to work fine, however I installed KDE to try it, decided i
dint like it, and purged it.

Everything on google seems to recommend simply removing Gnome and using
tasksel to reinstall Gnome from scratch, however this does not resolve
my issue.

some relevant outputs:
--
$ sudo service gdm restart
Warning: Unit file of gdm.service changed on disk, 'systemctl
daemon-reload' recommended.
Job for gdm.service failed. See 'systemctl status gdm.service' and
'journalctl -xn' for details.
