I have problem now with booting into Ubuntu because I removed some packages from package manager and its dependencies by mistake.
After I saw desktop removing applications one by one and the theme starting to disappear.
After I tried to restart the login, I tried to fix it using recovery mode but it's not working.
I am sure there are important packages removed, the problem is that I have no backup for my files ..
Also, I need my Firefox stored passwords. I tried to boot to Ubuntu live CD but files encrypted in home folder and no access to it. Is there away to access it ?
I think can boot, and have boot menu, after choosing boot normal or recovery .. I have some output but don't reach the desktop.
I don't think there is problem with grub boot because I have the boot menu, I think the problem is that important system packages have been removed .. and that maybe the reason that recovery mode didn't do anything , fix dkge didn't help and any other option in the recovery menu.
I think the solution may require the re-installation of Ubuntu, but I am afraid of losing important data like files and Firefox passwords .. etc.
I remember on windows when I was fixing the os I would repair and files application still existed, is that the same on Ubuntu? can i use Ubuntu 12.10 cd and start install it on the same partition and finally I'll find my application and files?
