Answer in 2 words: The location of Xserver for GDM is hard-coded at compile time in configure.ac, line 1199 in X_SERVER variable and can't be configured. So, may be you could play with symlinks, linking /usr/bin/Xorg (or, less probably /usr/bin/X, see this) to your build of Xserver. Details: I have a Debian 7, too and here's my process tree: ...

Since @Bob says there's no runtime configuration option for this and I didn't want to rebuild gdm3 from patched source, I took the following approach. First, move the real X server aside: sudo dpkg-divert --local --rename --add /usr/bin/Xorg Then drop a new shell script in place of /usr/bin/Xorg: #!/bin/sh test -x /usr/local/bin/Xorg && exec ...

It looks like you haven't changed your default runlevel and X Server is already running. You should have set it to 3, i.e.: id:3:initdefault: Although I don't think your script is going to work anyway. This part: cd /home/user1/Documents/ProgramFile ./ myProgram.sh is going to be executed only after X Server stopped.

when removing the package, some cleanup scripts are run. it seems like one of these fails (namely /etc/init.d/gdm3), rendering the un-installation incomplete. the proper way to fix this, is by checking why the script fails. try running /etc/init.d/gdm3 stop manually, and see why it fails. fix the underlying error, then try to uninstall again. an ugly ...

Probably, the ownership or permissions of your home directory has changed. To fix it, run as root chown -R USER:USER ~USER chmod u+rwx ~USER where you need to replace USER with your username.
