Ok, I got this APToncd CD from my friend who uses linux mint, i tried installing a couple of packages using gdebi package installer , but some error always came up. so i tried this

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

I heard that dpkg -i saves the older packages somewhere incase something goes wrong , but i dont know how to do it?????
My systems really messed up , all the windows have no borders , all my shortcuts are gone, none of the movies are playing!!! help????????

sudo apt-get -u upgrade
