I don't know of any option in any of the distros I am familiar with to do what you are asking, but that doesn't mean its not there.

What I would suggest is first getting yourself into a CLI. When your computer boots up, at GRUB, highlight the entry for your linux system, and press e to edit. Edit the first line so that you are adding init 3 then boot it up. (b)

It should now boot it into text mode. Log in and you can at least move around your files. I would recomend going and making sure the file is there. One trick may be to simply copy the file over to a different name. If the GUI can't see it it may skip it or work around on its own. Copy it to like con-language.png.old or something.

BTW what distro are you using? and it apears you are using GNOME right?

thats what I am trying to figure out right now. But if you are having trouble with the default theme, I don't know what theme you are going to switch it to.

One sweet and simple solution is...use KDM dump GDM...edit file
/etc/inittab and at the botton you would see this line..
CODE
.../etc/X11/prefdm -nodaemon


You edit and put following lines there.
CODE
.../etc/X11/kdm -nodaemon


But before that..just check where is KDM..just do a "whereis kdm".
