I was following this guide (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenCV) in order to install openCV.
sudo su sudo apt-get install build-essential sudo apt-get install libavformat-dev sudo apt-get install ffmpeg sudo apt-get install libcv2.3 libcvaux2.3 libhighgui2.3 python-opencv opencv-doc libcv-dev libcvaux-dev libhighgui-dev
I also runned the incomplete command :
sudo apt-get install libcv2.3 libcvaux2.3 libhighgui2.3 python-
the first time, by mistake, but i guess that shouldn't do anything wrong..
I also runned a
sudo apt-get autoremove
at some point.
After this, the ubuntu interface got all strange, resembling what this post describes..: Launcher and window menu bar missing after 12.04 upgrade
However, that's not the only issue... Some programs I had installed don't get their commands auto completed in the terminal anymore and I cannot find their bins at all...
I don't understand... it looks like something removed a lot of random programs.... like firefox, terminator... and maybe unity? Could it be that apt-get triggered some kind of update process that was interrupted? I don't have idea of what is going on here..
I already tried
sudo apt-get -f install
but it didn't solve anything.
Installing unity restored some interface elements but almost all my launcher icons are gonne and the interface skin is horrible and glitchy....
Any suggestions? I would like to be able to recover my programs back :(
