Mistakenly Uninstalled Something

Postby kwisher » Wed Jun 24, 2009 10:33 pm

I am currently building a home server for a customer using Mint-5. I was browsing through the menu and right-click uninstalling packages I didn't think were necessary for a server. Somehow I have uninstalled something that now I do not have desktop icons, right-click menu, main menu and the menu bar. Can someone tell me what I need to re-install to get these functions back? I can ssh into the system and can install what I need via the command line.

The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

It may take quite a while to troubleshoot which and how many apps are missing. :shock:
It may save you a lot of time by just re-installing! (20 minutes?) :D

good luck, Richard
