I was running the distribution upgrade on my System76 Serval Professional, and the upgrade failed while configuring samba.
This installed some of the OS, but even though I can log in (graphically) to the system, panel icons do not work, nor does not Nautilus; Metacity is just gone. How would I reinstall from a live CD over top of the current installation so that all pre-installed applications are installed?
If I can't do this, should I just 7zip my home folder and reinstall applications manually (that is, if the 7zip binary will even work; running the command
firefox results in an error- I'm not sure what; maybe my path isn't configured?).
