As an added aside, I highly recommend adding some info about doing this from a virtual terminal.

service lightdm needs to be disabled first on my machine. This is done by hitting shift-cntrl+f1 and

after logging in

sudo service lightdm stop

then proceeding with the above.

When finished,

sudo service lightdm start

Then hit shift +cntrl+f7 or alt > a few times to return to the GUI
