Unable to launch "cinnamon-session-cinnamon" X session "cinnamon-session-cinnamon" -found; Falling back to default "session."

I was replacing Network Manager with Wicd and restarted the computer and now after the login screen I get

"Unable to launch "cinnamon-session-cinnamon" X session "cinnamon-session-cinnamon" -found; Falling back to default "session."

I can exit the prompt and then I get a black screen, then if I press CTRL-ALT F1 it takes me to a login terminal and then I have an open terminal, is there a way to reinstall cinnamon from there so I don't lose all the work I've done?

I used the command "sudo apt-get purge network-manager" after installing Wicd and I saw "removing cinnamon" but didn't realize it would do this. I think the right command was "sudo apt-get remove network-manager"
