I installed that theme recently and it didn't break anything in the process.
Try loging in and starting X in the terminal:

Code: Select all
$ startx

Still, you can try removing the package:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove orta theme &&  apt-get autoremove


Also you can try removing the ppa and updating:
Code: Select all
sudo ppa-purge ppa:nikount/orta-desktop &&  apt-get update


Nevertheless I don't think the problem is in Orta theme nor the PPA
