    In Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin, It is very easy to change Desktop Environment, Just One Command and Done.
    To Change Default User Login Session please follow the procedure and Your Default Login Session will change Permanently.
    I am showing the way to change user session for Below Most Popular Environments :-
    1. Gnome Classic
    2. Gnome Classic ( No Effects )
    3. Ubuntu ( Unity )
    4. Ubuntu 2D ( Unity )
    DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
    1. You need to be root or sudo user which has rights to execute “lightdm-set-defaults” command.
    Sudo enabled Users can execute following command with sudo at starting of command.
    ==> To Set User Session to Gnome Classic, Please Execute Following Command :-
    # /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s gnome-classic
    #/etc/init.d/lightdm restart
    ==> To Set User Session to Gnome Classic with No Effects, Please Execute Following Command :-
    # /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s gnome-fallback
    #/etc/init.d/lightdm restart

    ==> To Set User Session to Ubuntu ( Unity ), Please Execute Following Command :-
    # /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s ubuntu
    #/etc/init.d/lightdm restart
    ==> To Set User Session to Ubuntu 2D ( Unity ), Please Execute Following Command :-
    # /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s ubuntu-2d
    #/etc/init.d/lightdm restart
    If you have installed More Login Sessions then you can see all available sessions’ list from /usr/share/xsessions/ and Use above commands to set User Session and Restart lightdm service.
