I deleted the /usr/share/themes directory, how can I recover it? Is there any way to check if there is any missing file/directory in /Computer directory? This was a bad try to change GIMP and Inkscape themes ("gtkrc" file). I changed all "gtkrc" files that I found in the system (stupid me...) and now my windows and apps are distorted =(


Run dpkg -S /usr/share/themes to see what packages you have installed that install files into that directory. Then, run sudo apt-get install --reinstall packages, replacing packages with the list of packages returned by the previous command.
