I accidentally deleted all files inside folder /var. Now, my computer restarts but switches to Command line interface. So, how to make my system work as before?

    Backup all your personal data and reinstall... I do not think that such a damage is recoverable. Sorry. – Rmano Nov 13 '14 at 9:59

    Agree with @Rmano make a backup but do not format your disks. If you do this without a format you will keep all your files and the default /var files are restored. If it works you get your system up and running but do not need to restore a backup. – Rinzwind Nov 13 '14 at 10:04

If you do it like this you will keep all personal files and the default /var files are restored. You should get your system up and running but do not need to restore a backup. Otherwise do restore the backup.
