I installed Ubuntu 13.04 a few days back, dual-booting with Windows. I mainly use Python 2.7, so I installed that (I downloaded the .tar.gz file from python.org), but for some reason (
_tkinter could not be found), I could not use Tkinter. I tried various ways of installed Tkinter/Tk, but they didn't work, so I thought I should uninstall it and reinstall it. In the terminal, this was my command:
sudo apt-get remove python2.7. However, this removed Python 3.3, which came pre-installed. Thus, one by one the applications stopped working and I had to restart my computer. Now, I can log in to Ubuntu but nothing appears on the desktop. No dock, nothing. Not much of a problem, since I still have Windows 7 installed.
I also booted Ubuntu with advanced-options and then used the root to try to reinstall Python 3.3 (
sudo apt-get install python3.3) but it said I have the latest version installed already.
However, I just checked using a partition manager (DiskInternals Linux Reader), and Python 3.3 is still there, at /usr/lib/python3.3. Could this be another problem then? If so, how can I fix it?
I don't want to reinstall Ubuntu because when I first installed it, it reset Windows (located on my C drive, my D drive remained unaffected) back to its defaults, and I had to reinstall all of my programs.
