I was in a rush and accidently did "sudo chmod -R 777/". As you can imagine, everything is broken. I can't access sudo either. Is there a solution to this, or will I have to do a clean install?

    Only chmod 777 / wouldn't break anything. Did you do chmod -R 777 /? – muru May 11 '16 at 20:10

  • I think I can fix this, but need to test it in a virtual machine, but need sleep first.... – blade19899 May 11 '16 at 20:13
  • Yeah, I think I might be able to reverse everything, yaay... – blade19899 May 11 '16 at 20:23

You will have to do a new clean install, sorry.
