You can try to install extundelete via the software center. If that is not working you will need to recover the lost files the hard way, some call the process data carving. Basically you run a tool like foremost to search your whole disk for pattern of lost files. Have a look here

The act of installing extundelete could well wipe over the files. – Kaz Apr 11 '13 at 18:48
True, ideally you switch off the system, take a disk image and work only on that. – Ruediger Apr 11 '13 at 19:12
