View Full Version : [SOLVED] accidentally removed libs ,can't log onto Ubuntu 10.04

May 9th, 2010, 07:58 PM
i was trying to remove the flash plugin 32bit wrapper (don't remember the exact name of the package),using the command apt-get -y remove --purge and i saw somehow uninstalled a bunch of other programs like the gnome-network manager,emphaty...
Now i rebooted and can't log on anymore .

Is there a way to repair this,like running an upgrade from the livecd to restore the missing parts without wiping out my conf & other programs ?

I've tried this that i found some other forum ,but i didn't work

sudo mkdir /mnt/repair

sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/repair

sudo chroot /mnt/repair su

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo aptitude upgrade
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get upgrade

I'm running a dual-boot with windows 7
