How to return to classic Gnome in Ubuntu 12.04 Precise

I am running Ubuntu 12.04 in Oracle VM VirtualBox under Windows 7.

I would like to go back to Gnome, I highly dislike the Unity interface.

I did what is outlined here, and it seems to install correctly:

But, upon logout and login I do NOT get the option to set up Gnome.

What can I do now? I cannot find any settings for this.

Thank you.

During logon, do you have an option dealing with environments? This is where you can choose which environment you want the session to use.

I don't see any way of getting into environments during logon. I only seem to have a single field to enter my password. How would I get to changing the environments, if it does not magically come up during logon?

Logout, when it prompts for the username, that is where the environments option should be available.  In your example, you seem to be resuming an existing session you can not change desktops this way.

Username:
Environments drop down./options
