I am a novice at Ubuntu and unfortunately i have deleted 3 files in the usr/bin folder
python 2.7 python python 2.6
Now my update manager wont work and when i type in python into gnome it says that it is no longer there.
Please help me ive tried loads of different things but it just wont work.
The closest i got was the following:
I typed in
sudo apt-get -f install
and i thought i had fixed it but then i got a error message -
