I have the problem that gdm shows black screen on bootup and when I switch to a text console and do a top, i can see that gnome-shell and gnome-settings-daemon are eating up 100% cpu load each.

I have tried to check the logs of /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log and both shows no relevant information to the issue (at least in my eyes)

The last thing I did before I restarted last time was to switch on "global dark theme" - but i have not found out where the hell to change this setting back again... and if it even has relevance at all..
the second last thing i did was to install freemat - but seriously, that ought not to hurt anything...

Anyone who has an idea about what I could do here?

Finally found out what went wrong by running
strace gnome-shell

I could see that several files was not found and for some reason it kept on looping on it instead of giving up and handling out an error message.

It was solved by reinstalling gnome-themes again
