If you can boot into recovery mode you can create a new user by

adduser -G admin namechange name to the username you want to use.

thanks for ur reply but thats didnt do it , i guess because Home directroy deleted there not configration files any more because of that i cant use Gnome , well the problem starts after restarting my system ubunut check files FSCK automaticlly but in the middile of that error shown and asked to complete FSCK manualy so i did , and i just asowerd yes for FIX or Change thats what happened exactly , I guess there is a chance to get my systme back to work instead of new installation Am I right ?
