Restore default *releases file

Postby troysjanda » Thu Dec 13, 2012 12:23 am

In an effort to install the Ubuntu Software Center I modified the *releases, and *issue file with the following command and info

gksu gedit /etc/*release
and now change everything in the file which is opened in gedit:
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=Precise
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04"

Now run following command:
gksu gedit /etc/*issue
and change to:
Ubuntu 12.04 \n \l


I would like to restore the default information for LinuxMint 14 Nadia, can someone please help.
Thanks

Don't want to bring back the dead, but I am having an issue related to this.

I tried installing USC as well, and then removed it, but I am now missing packages from Software Manager (a lot of packages) and I do not know which ones are default or how to get the old ones back...


EDIT:


Ok,

So I found the source of the problem here, I accidently uninstalled the Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal Repository, does anyone know what that is?

I ended up referring to this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2079045



Everything's all smoothed out now!
