I have some problem, so can anyone help me ?

After I have run computer janitor, my computer crashed. What happens ;

  • All of the sets are gone.
  • I cannot see my Desktop ( I think it erased image of the ubuntu ) .
  • I can not use usb ( In terminal, error message is thrown "port cannot be used" )

After I opened my computer, at left corner, there is a terminal. Moreover, background of desktop is colored by violet ( I think it is violet ) .

What I can use ;

  • I can only use terminal.
  • No program is erased ( I can use them over terminal )
  • No file is erased

How can I save my computer ?

Without loosing any file, I can upgrade to any version of ubuntu. ( remember : I can only use terminal. )

My other question : how can upgrade ubuntu to any version of ubuntu over using Tty ?

EDIT :

@tijybba how can I know. Can you recommend me any command, which can be used in tty, in order to see version of ubuntu ? ( I think ubuntu 10.04 64 bit ) –  user8324 Jun 14 '12 at 8:51
    
lsb_release -a and uname -a, try that in tty –  atenz Jun 14 '12 at 8:56

@ gcc- its weird 19.04.4 LTS, anyways try sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop , it will try to install the deleted packages that janitor deleted. Use of Janitor is not Recommended. –  atenz Jun 14 '12 at 9:07

Try sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop , it will try to install the deleted packages that janitor deleted. Use of Janitor is not Recommended

Also for recovering deleted file try here .

And use of janitor is not recommended as fossfreedom said here

Computer Janitor is being dropped in the next version of Ubuntu - mainly because nobody used it and the serious perceived issues that it could break your system with some of its suggestions.
