Killed the desktop with a non existent theme...

Hello there,

Ubuntu 6.10 on a laptop.
I installed a metacity theme that does not exist and now I get a blank
screen (no panels, no background) when I start gdm.
Luckily a terminal window was open and it still, if I try to run a program
e.g. nautilus I get a Gtk warning message:
Theme file for <chamelon...> has no directories.

How do I revert to the default Human theme or to any other theme?
