I have Ubuntu 10.4.By mistaken i deleted some packages from synaptic
package manager and then my screen gave me a weird look.Surely
something wrong had happened.Everything got changed e.g softwares
,menus etc.
Then i rebooted the system and started it in recovery mode and chose
the broken package option .After it ,again rebooted and normally
started it to login to my system.But it couldn't reach to login
screen.I waited for 1 hours but the screen shows like it is being
start up(See the screen-shot).
Please somebody help me .What should i do to fix it.

See the attached screen-shot

Are you still wubi wubi wubiing?

As Jeff G said in a thread that you got us into a twist and wasted our
time, "would have been useful at the start", I would say "Required!"


If I had not constrained myself to reply you in that thread, which I
chose to ignore, you will have a more colourful response, which come to
think of it, would be more helpful to you.

Some perl packages.



Guys, I don't think perl packages are that fatal. If I am wrong,
somebody correct me fast.


Amrit, go to recovery console again..get to the 'root with networking'
part. Then at the prompt...issue the following commands....

apt-get -f install
dpkg --configure -a
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Then reboot as follows (to make sure it is not a video problem)
When boot grub menu appears, press 'e' at the first menu, use arrow keys
to the linux line and modify as follows...

From
linux /boot/vmlinuz-x.x.x-x-generic root=UUID=xxxxxxxx ro splash quiet
to
linux /boot/vmlinuz-x.x.x-x-generic root=UUID=xxxxxxxx ro nomodeset

Press 'ctrl' + 'x' to boot (do not press 'esc')

If booted, then we're back and try to boot as normal.
If not, I give up.

Goh Lip
ps: booting to external, please wait 45 secs after pressing 'ctrl' + 'x'

Maybe you're right, but we are trying to eliminate possibilities here.
Oh, there's a nice command by popey that you may want to include in the
list of recovery root commands


apt-get install ubuntu-desktop^ (note the caret end of line)

I have not any major need for this yet (for me kubuntu) but understand
it's very handy.

I would "sudo apt-get install gdm -f" or if that did not fix it,
"sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop -f" Do you remember what packages you
were deleting? Whatever it was took out depended upon packages as well.
