I removed compiz to reinstall it, then I couldn't reset it because dconf couldn't get a connection and nothing else was working, so in my frustration I decided to purge dconf* and reinstall it all, but by doing that I completely wrecked ubuntu.
My desktop is an unresponsive black screen with a mouse, and I'm trying to somehow get out of this using a tty terminal. Nautilus, unity, and pretty much everything else doesn't exist anymore,
I can't use apt-get for anything because I get a whole mess of errors along the lines of:
Failed to fetch ..... Could not resolve 'archive.ubuntu.com'
Is there anything I can do to save my documents and maybe restore my operating system to something functional?
