I uninstalled the Python 2.7 package to try and upgrade to Python 3. I uninstalled Python 2.7, and noticed some of my launcher items were completely gone. At this point I had installed Python 3. Now on reboot, I can't log in and the background for the log-in screen is black with white dots. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. - This is running 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot. I still have the same version Live CD.
EDIT: Thanks for the feedback! But I can't boot into text mode, only boot from the Live CD, and I can't connect to the internet because I installed the Debian .tar.gz package usb_modeswitch for Mobile Broadband. Is there a way to copy the Python 2.7 parts of the OS from the Live CD and inject them into my system? The only thing I can think of is get a 12.04 Live CD and click 'Upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04' option, but for reasons I won't go into this is impractical for me.
