Running LMDE, I recently removed much of my software by accident -- including the MATE desktop and Terminal! -- while attempting to install a program whose dependencies I obviously misunderstood. Luckily my software was all backed up, but of course I cannot restore it with backup-manager because I have no desktop!
Is there a way to restore my software_selection.list (including my desktop) through the command line in recovery mode? I'm guessing it should be a snap, but can't figure it out with my limited Linux experience.
Thanks in advance for your help!
