accidental uninstallation of gnome

Postby lvshankar on Fri Feb 09, 2007 8:53 am

I installed python2.5 from Add/Remove and tried removing python2.4 from Synaptic. I ignored the warning that a lot of other packages will be removed. :oops: After everything was removed, my DE was looking bad with System menu missing and old style directory icons etc...on restart i got only tty1 :cry:

i did apt-get gnome and got my DE back. I had to do more apt-get to get everything back. But I am not getting 2 things.

1) No Open Terminal on right click
2) Sound: actually my card (VIA vt8251) was detected but no sound came (checked for loose wire, muted volume etc). I tried to run a script from the Linux Drivers given in my mobo (Asus A8V-MX). But now even my sound card is not detected!!! :shock:
And no /dev/dsp either!!

please help...thanks in dying without meesic!! :(
